Death By Love: Additional Resources

We just wrapped up a 4-week series at Awaken Church on what Jesus accomplished on the cross. There’s no way to cover it all in 4 weeks, but we hit some major themes and undoubtedly, will come back to it in the future.

Wanted to give you a list of books and resources that you can use to further your study of the cross, the event that stands at the literal crux of human history and without which, we have no hope. I used all of these resources in some capacity in preparing the messages for the series and thus, I highly recommend them all.
