The answer is to look at the death of Christ not from our point of view, but from God’s. That’s what this book helps you do in a profound, strategic, and life-changing way.

Author C. J. Mahaney exposes our human tendency to look at the Savior’s death (and at everything else!) through our own sub

Christ our Mediator, by CJ Mahaney does one thing well. It pleads with the reader to consider the supreme importance of understanding of Christ's substitutionary death on the cross. Mahaney posits, " better understanding His suffering, we'll grow in a consistent joy and zeal that will equip us for whatever trials God brings our way in the process of sanctification."

A quick read of only 63 pages, simply written and concise, Christ our Mediator reads more like a sermon that an actual book. In

A study on the various aspects of the Passion of our Savior. This book diagrams beautifully the emotion, love, sacrifice, and majesty of my wonderful Lord. I watched as C.J. Presented the cross as a personal act of love for me. The main thrust behind this book is that “before we can see the cross as something done for us, we must see it as something done by us.” - John Stott. What a concept. My Christ, as a gift from my God, sacrificed that I might have a relationship with Him. “For there is one ...more
Take a look "with more depth and detail at why He suffered and what He uniquely accomplished by His suffering in relation to God and for the sinner" as C.J. Mahaney explores the gospel, beginning with what he calls "The Divine Dilemma", the solution, and what that meant for Jesus to die in our place, for our sins, so we may be forgiven and reconciled to God.

This is a short read, but presents the gospel with a little different emphasis than I'm used to - namely the very personal person of Jesus C

I was tickled pink to find this small hardcover/coffee table style book being practically given away at my local library.
A fan of CJ Mahaney, I nabbed it up and have found that for it's concise length, it holds rich and deeply vibrant gospel truth.
It sums up all the powerful salvation clarity and theological profundity of CJ's previously authored title, "Living the Cross Centered Life" in a shorter, but equally effective work.
Excellent resource for gifting, outreach/welcome bags etc.

Christ our Mediator is a much-needed correction to this culture of entitlement. It should astound us that Jesus went to hell on the cross so we’ll never get what we deserve. We’ve grown too accustomed to grace-we need to be floored by it. C. J. Mahaney gives us a fresh look at our Lord and His cross. I was drawn closer to Jesus through this book-what higher complement could I offer?

A good book for any Christian to read, but it would be exceptional especially in its use with a new believer or in an evangelistic relationship. My only complaint is that Mahaney doesn't plunge as deeep as I'd like at times (the book's brevity doesn't allow for it).

This book is vintage C.J. All Gospel, all the time. It takes you through the Gospel storyline from beginning to end offering wonderful new perspectives and an outstanding glimpse into C.J.'s passion for the Cross.

Really great book. It begs to be read slowly. Absorb it and THINK as you read. Don't hurry through, but listen to God speaking.
