"As Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington have shown, the cross brings a timely and unparalleled message of costly love and forgiveness. Their work is a thorough examination of this rich truth in the Scriptures, and you will be richer for their biblical insights."
—Ravi Zacharias, Founder and President, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries; author, Jesus Among Other Gods
"Men who have taught us so much about God's transforming grace now marshal their resources to defend and define the glorious blessings of Christ's atonement, which exchanges our sin for his righteousness. No truth is more important; no book more needed."
—Bryan Chapell, President Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary; Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois
"The next time I am asked for my top-ten reading list, this will be included! Clear and comprehensive, it leaves the reader in no doubt that this 'great exchange' is not only the heart of biblical theology but also the pivotal event of human history."
—Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio
"The gospel announces a great exchange: the innocent God-Man assuming our debt as we inherit his righteousness. Those who love to hear that story will love to read this book and will be filled with fresh enthusiasm to share it with others."

As scripture says, we cannot erase our sin, change the realty that we are sinners, or do enough good to delete it. God must intervene on our behalf and provide a solution to sin and our condemnation. Enter Jesus Christ and the gospel, or the good news. Jesus and His death and resurrection are God's solution to our sin - Jesus and what He did are God's love on display. Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington take us through a Bible journey, in both the Old and New Testaments, showing and explaining how Christ's death on the cross is indeed the solution for sin. The title concisely states what Jerry and Bob unpack in their book: the Biblical truth that for God's people, through Jesus, my sin is exchanged for His righteousness.
If you want to see a Biblical panorama of Christ's great atonement this book is for you. It will bring insight into and deep gratitude for Christ and His sacrifice on our behalf.
Read it, buy an extra for a friend, and recommend it often!!
This book is a refreshing departure from the "what would Jesus do?" mind-set that is so prevalet in today's Christian Culture. Bridges and Bevington stress that "we should always look first at what Jesus did as our representative before looking at him as our example."
"The Great Exchange" is a wonderful reference book for those seeking to share the gospel with unbelievers. It outlines objective facts rather than subjective experiences to "prove" that Jesus' primary purpose for coming was die on the cross thereby paying our legal debt for sin.
Bridges and Bevington emphasize that the cross is the "all-encompassing foundation for Christian growth" not just the first step toward spiritual development.
A must read for those interested in developing sound theology and a foundation for sharing the Good News.
