Was Jesus’ crucifixion just a tragic untimely end to a wonderful life? Why did God allow this to happen? What is the whole story?

Author John Hutchinson has woven together, into one harmonious narrative, every detail of Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension from the four Gospels, to give a more complete picture and a richer insight into the most crucial event in all of human history.

John's previous book, Astounding Love, reveals God’s immeasurable love and goodness and His burning desire for a close, loving relationship with us all. Astounding Sacrifice describes the immense price that God and Jesus willingly paid to bring us back into this love relationship for eternity. Truly this was an astounding sacrifice!

Astounding Sacrifice is truly a labor of love inspired by the Holy Spirit that clarifies the events of the last few weeks of Christ’s life on earth as fully man and fully God.

John has inserted very helpful information and explanations that are invaluable in further Bible study. This is not only a logical reference and study manual but can be a wonderful devotional reading experience.
