Book Description

The work of Jesus Christ lies at the heart of the message of the gospel. Yet many Christians have only a vague and insecure grasp of what it is that Christ has done for them and little understanding of what Scripture means by words like ‘redemption’, ‘reconciliation’ and ‘propitiation’.

In A Price for a People Tom Wells meets the widespread need for a clear explanation of the biblical teaching of the meaning of the cross. Recognizing that the nature of Christ’s work determines its effects, he also deals with the important question, ‘For whom did Christ die?’. His careful answer will help many people to a clearer understanding and a deeper appreciation of what Christ has done for them.

    Years ago I found a copy of Tom Wells book, Christian:Take Heart!, and this book, A Price for a People. Of all my books about Jesus Christ and how He cares for us these two are at the top of the list. Pastor Wells has show me how to draw near Jesus instead of fearing Him.
