About-

"It is surprising . . . how few books on the cross have stood the test of time. During the twentieth century, James Denny's Death of Christ (1903), Leon Morris's Apostolic Preaching of the Cross (1955), and John Stott's The Cross of Christ (1986) are among the few outstanding works. Now in Dick Tripp's Why Did Jesus Die? we have a work of outstanding and lasting worth--an amazingly comprehensive reference to all the biblical texts that point to Christ's death, its meaning and significance for today's church. . . . Throughout, there is constant cross-reference to both Testaments, to the church's commentators throughout history, and to contemporary Christian writers. A mine of fact and interpretation to inspire the heart of any preacher and teacher of Scripture. I unreservedly commend this book to pastors as a study guide for preaching on the cross and to all who seek to live out in daily life Jesus Christ, as Saviour and Lord."
--Bruce Nicholls, editor of the Asia Bible Commentary Series (from the foreword)

"Dick Tripp combs the Scriptures to find and focus every reference to history's most momentous event. Does a more thorough analysis of the biblical data exist anywhere? I doubt it."
--James I. Packer, Board of Governors's Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver

"Dick Tripp's treatment of the cross of Christ is comprehensive and readable. Students and seasoned preachers alike will find this book, and the way the material is arranged, most helpful."
--Derek Eaton, former Bishop of Nelson and Assistant Bishop of Cairo
