Atonement as Gift

Full Product Description

Atonement as Gift: Re-Imagining the Cross for the Church and the World grows out of the conviction that the doctrine of the atonement has wide-reaching practical implications for some of the deepest pastoral and theological questions individuals and communities face today.

This book asks the question:'What difference does the atonement make for ecumenics, pastoral care, theodicy, gender, ecology, and social division?' The answers, given by experts in their fields, point to the potential of the doctrine to renew Christian theology and spirituality.

This unique book is designed not only to offer the insights of these theologians, but also to guide readers to engage the issue for themselves and to integrate the doctrine into their own theological reflection.
