The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross, a work that can now be placed among the modern classics of biblical scholarship, delves into the minds of the apostles when they used such words as "redeem," "covenant," "propitiate," "reconcile," and "justify" - concepts that remain central to the Christian faith today. Respected scholar Leon Morris studies these themes against the background of the relevant Old Testament passages, takes into account the light shed on the meanings of these words in everyday language of New Testament times by recent manuscript discoveries, and compares apostolic terminology to that used in the writings of rabbinical Judaism. The result of Marris's careful background research is a lucid and rewarding study of the source of Christian theology - the death of Christ and the interpretation of its significance by the early church.

It is very technical (assumes and requires a knowledge of Greek and some Hebrew). If you enjoy Biblical languages and love the Gospel, you will love this book.
I have just completed a sermon series using chapters in this book as a starting point. In preparing for the sermon series, I discovered that many of the other books I used in my preparation cite this book themselves. It is clearly influential among those writing on similar topics. Read this book!
