Death by Love

It sat on my shelf for about a year, but I finally picked up Death by Love the other day and started working on it. Here are a few of my favorite quotes so far:

"It is at the cross of Jesus that the love of God for us is most clearly seen."pg. 12

"The depth of our sin and the depth of God's love cannot be fully known apart from Jesus' cross."pg. 12

"It was our sin and our condemnation, but it was Jesus, the sinless one, who took our place and in so doing took our sin and condemnation so that we could live a new life with a new nature by a new power free from sin and condemnation."pg. 27

"Of all the world's great religious writings, only the Bible presents God acting out of his love and power to come and redeem humans from bondage. This unique theme of redemption portrays humanity helplessly entrapped in sin and reveals a God whose love moves him to intervene." pg. 70

All quotes from, Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears, Death By Love: Letters from the Cross (Wheaton: Crossway Books, 2008.)
