Book Review: Redemption, accomplished and applied

Redemption: Accomplished and Applied by John Murry is a classic Christian book. Yet again it is a book that I should have read years ago, and would encourage all Christians to read. I remember reading the Bible with a student once who was struggling, but after going away to read this book came back an entirely new person. You see, the truths contained in this book are the gospel pure and simple.

Murray walks us through the meaning of the cross (including it’s extent which many skip today) and looks at how the cross is applied in our lives. At points you feel like he is splitting hairs and going too deep, but then you see how what he is looking at affects us and brings us joy in our salvation.

Reading this book and understanding the truths contained will give you:

-a better understanding of the gospel

-a deeper love of the Saviour

-a greater assurance

-a stronger faith

At times the language can be a bit old fashioned and the sentences long.  But the book is a classic and deserves to be.

If you have read ‘living a cross centred life‘ and ‘cross examined‘ then this is a good next step.
