INTRODUCTION
 Why a Book on ThePassion of Christ
Somebody emailed me a message suggesting that I amwasting my time writing a book that exposes the unbiblicalelements and teachings of Mel Gibson
The Passion of the Christ.
 After all, most movies are not documentaries. They are largelybased on fiction, not on facts. I would like to respond to thisobservation by mentioning two facts.First, the major reason for writing this book is not merelyto critique Gibson’s movie, but to lead people to a freshappreciation of the centrality, necessity, and achievements of theCross. In
The Passion of the Christ 
, Gibson makes no attempt toaddress the fundamental question: Why was it necessary forChrist to suffer and die for our salvation? His sole objective is toportray the relentless brutal torture of Christ from the time of Hisarrest until His death. But, many are asking, Did Christ need to betortured unto death to satisfy the demands of a punitive God? DidChrist pay the penalty of our sins through the intensity of Hissufferings or through His sacrificial death?These questions are especially relevant today when thepresence of sin and the need of a Savior are largely dismissed asoutmoded concepts. A vindictive and punitive portrayal of a Godwho allows His Son to be tortured unto death can only play intothe hands of skeptics who find the notion of forgiveness throughthe vicarious cruel suffering and death of an innocent victim to bea perversion of justice.
