The Work of Christ would be an excellent study for a new believer or a great refresher for a seasoned saint. Each chapter examines a pivotal moment in Christ's life and the works He accomplished during that time. From Bethlehem to His return, Sproul breaks it down so we can see the importance of every aspect of Christ's works.
To be honest, The Work of Christ provided no new insights for me - it was an excellent overview - but nothing that made me stop and go "Wow". But that's okay because what I loved about this book is that, after each chapter, there is a thorough outline of the important points that you needed to understand about that section. Even better there is a series of study questions that point you to more scriptures, allowing you to expand your study, if that's what you desire. If the reader takes advantage of these end-of-chapter studies, he will get even more from this book.
The Work of Christ will benefit anyone wanting a deeper understanding of what Christ did for us. A great addition to the bookshelf of any believer.

From the Back Cover: "The work of Jesus reveals to us who He is. The work and the person may be distinguished but never separated." --Dr. R. C. Sproul
Most Christians recognize the importance of Christ's death and resurrection. But how many of us understand the theological significance of Jesus' actions before and after the Crucifixion? In The Work of Christ, Dr. R. C. Sproul looks at every aspect of Jesus' life and work, addressing such life-changing topics as:
Why Jesus' baptism is relevant for our salvation
The similarities and differences between the temptation of the first Adam and the temptation of Jesus, the "second Adam"
How God uses song to celebrate his redemptive acts
Why the Last Supper marks the beginning of a greater exodus than that of the Old Testament
How Jesus' death and resurrection are grounded in the eternal covenant among the persons of the Trinity
Why Jesus' ascension makes a difference in our lives today
What we know and don't know about Jesus' return
Moving from Jesus' existence from before creation through His incarnation, boyhood, adulthood, death, resurrection, and return, Dr. Sproul guides you to a deeper understanding of God's beautiful promise and purpose behind the works of Christ's life.
Who exactly is Jesus? Why didn't He just come down as a thirty-three year old man and go directly to the cross and die that Friday? His death would have freed us from Sin but would still have left us without a Redeemer. So Jesus had to be born and live a righteous life so that we could have His righteousness transferred onto us before The Father.Read more ›
