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.

Yes. It's encouraging to remind us in all walks of life, not always just our own, why and how God loves us so much that he sent his son to die and be raised for us to be with Him.
It's faithful to scripture and seems to capture the heart of our loving father in many ways.
His voice. Anyone who has heard Mark preach knows he has his own way of saying things.
An encouraging book for Christian and non-Christian alike in all walks of life.
Love historical fiction, good light reading, histories, and theological treatises.
I thought this would be a treatise on the cross, a full book on the theological implications of the cross on life in general, or on humanity. Instead, it is a series of letters from Mark Driscoll, written in the tone and spirit of those written by Paul, Peter, Luke, etc., in the New Testament, to people he has either counseled or knew personally. They are enlightening, especially as you are bound at some point to hear a letter that you very well yourself could receive. Those which you might not have received yourself are illuminating in the sense that they give you a good idea of the tone of mind to take with other people, and their sins. Very Christ-centered, and an excellent device by which to display the different elements of the cross and redemption. Well done, MD!
Really theologically deep book, with a very good format of 12 letters exploring various issues of sin for people. I thought that as Driscolls such a great preacher, his reading style would also hold up, but sadly it's pretty tough going. I had to rewind a lot as I struggled to pay attention. Still the content is great for looking deep into how Jesus death and resurrection can restore even the most broken of lives. I may get the book later just to go back over it properly - but the audiobook was pretty dry with Mark's reading style - just to monotonous for a whole book. Sorry Mark.
