So i finished reading John Piper's book "The Passion of Jesus Christ" awhile back and i highly recommend it. Was a short but made a large impact and i found it really useful just reading a couple of the bits during my quiet time. He essentially gives 50 reasons why Jesus came to die. An interesting test is just to see how many you can think of, off the top of your head, and then be challenged by just how small a view we often have of why Jesus came to die. So in summary it was brilliant, challenging and refreshing.
