Real people. Real sin. Transformed lives. A compilation of heartfelt letters that explains Jesus' work on the cross, read by coauthor Mark Driscoll. Death by Love is a unique audio experience on the cross of Jesus Christ. While many studies of the cross discuss the finer points of the doctrine of the atonement, what is often lost are the real-life implications of Jesus' death for those who sin and are sinned against.

Read in the form of pastoral letters, Death by Love outlines the 12 primary effects of Jesus' death on the cross and connects each to the life of a different individual. Driscoll, one of America's most influential pastors and narrator of Death by Love, and Breshears, a respected theologian, help listeners understand, appreciate, and trust in Jesus' work on the cross in a way that will transform their lives.

Both deeply theological and intensely practical, this unabridged audiobook explains how everyone can find hope through the death of Jesus Christ. Download and start listening now!

    " The main preaching pastor at Mars Hill Church (which I am a part of) Pastor Mark Driscoll wrote this book with Gerry Breshears. It is an amazing book that highlights aspects of the atonement, by telling true life stories. It is an amazing book for Biblical Counseling. I would highly recommend it for anyone who disciples, trains, or counsels people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Matheson | 1/31/2014

    " This book does a great job of showing different aspects of the cross, and how they relate to people. I especially like the chapter entitled "my daddy is a pastor" where Pastor Mark describes deals with the question "who did Jesus die for?" explaining differences between limited and unlimited atonement, and more than that offers a third category of unlimited limited atonement "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Joy | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth | 1/22/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 3/22/2013

    " Tough read....some really heart-wrenching letters between a pastor and his congregants. In the letters, Driscoll points the congregant to how the saving work of Christ can be applied to their specific situation. This is what Pastoring is all about...solid stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy Zmuda | 6/20/2012

    " "I hate my brother" was, to me, the best. "My Daddy is a Paster" was a little harder to follow. I know I'm going to have to buy this book for myself now :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 3/1/2011

    " I loved this book. Because he teaches deep Gospel doctrine in the context of different sins in the lives of people it seems to stick. For example, I don't think I will get expiation mixed up with propitiation as a result of reading this because I am connecting those doctrines to a story now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/18/2010
