I just finished reading Robert Peterson’s wonderful book on the work of Jesus “Salvation Accomplish by the Son: The Work of Christ”. Although I am biased due to the fact that Peterson was one of my favorite professors in Covenant Seminary many years ago, I can honestly say this has be one of the best books I’ve read on the Son’s work.
Peterson says in the conclusion “Christ’s saving work is profound, massive and magnificent” and this book brings out that work in very helpful and encouraging ways. Although not overly technical, it is long (575 pages) but considering the subject matter, Peterson makes the book both readable and comprehensive.
The book is divided into two sections: Events and Pictures – each of these 15 chapters used to help give us a greater understanding of how salvation is accomplished.
The events are:
- Sinless Life
- Session (his rule)
- Second Coming
The pictures are:
- Legal Substitute
- Second Adam
Take your time with this book. Slowly digest it. And let Peterson open your eyes to the fullness of Christ’s saving work.
