About This Resource
The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why was Jesus Christ crucified? Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his death? The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God’s Son. The suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer.
The central issue of Jesus’ death is not the cause, but the meaning. That is what this book is about. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons in answer to the most important question that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
Ukraine is a key state, a spiritual bridge between east and west, Orthodox and Catholic. Kyiv was where Slavic Christianity was born 1,000 years ago. Ukraine has a strong Christian heritage, but suffering under Communism was severe. Evangelical Christians have emerged stronger and more numerous from 130 years of unrelenting persecution in which millions of Christians were killed. Most evangelical denominations are growing rapidly, hampered only by an inability to erect buildings and train leaders. Good, spiritual, theological training is a great need.
Many have benefited from theological education since 1989, but with many more churches beginning or waiting for pastors, the need is as urgent as ever.
Resources are the greatest challenge to Christian educators – the lack of trained teachers is overshadowed by the lack of textbooks, facilities and funding for the students themselves. (Operation World)
