Why Jesus Came to Die

The following resource has been very helpful for me over the years as I think through the meaning of the Lenten season mentioned above: John Piper’s Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die (Wheaton: Crossway, 2004).

This brief book has 50 short chapters, each meditating on a particular purpose that is accomplished by the death of Christ. Since Lent covers 46 days days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, this book makes for an excellent devotional for the Lenten season. The entire book can be downloaded for free as a PDF from the Desiring God website.
