This was a wonderful book on what the blood of Christ has accomplished for the believers. It is amazing to see how much His blood accomplished and studying the blood of Christ beautifully capture the multi-faceted dimension of our salvation through the Gospel. The book has thirteen chapters and covers areas such as propitiation, justification, redemption, sanctification, ransom and being brought near by the blood of Christ.
I appreciated how the author wrote this book with devotional flavor. Readers will also appreciate the references to hymns and spiritual songs throughout the book concerning the blood of Christ. That musical dimension certainly reminds the readers that this is not an academically dry subject (see the two appendix of the book as well which features references to songs on the blood and also the author’s own song on the precious blood). If there’s one criticism I have for the book is that sometimes the chapters felt like it was too short but I suppose to think more positively the book left me hungry to learn more about the doctrines of salvation and the Gospel. Great for devotional reading and even for small group which was the context of my reading of this book.
