Preaching the AtonementHelen Hancox, via The Good Book Stall
Shortlisted for the Michael Ramsey prize, 2007
This book discusses aspects of the atonement with reference to the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. Themes include Abraham's command to sacrifice Isaac, the Scapegoat in Leviticus, the Suffering Servant in Isaiah, the centrality of the Cross to Christian thought, God's justice, the reconciliation of the world and more. Each chapter introduces the thought behind a particular aspect of atonement theology with reference to theologians and other thinkers and includes a sample sermon with a commentary on the sermon. This book is well written with extensive notes, Bible references and a comprehensive bibliography and the thoughts are clearly laid out. However it does assume significant theological knowledge and uses Greek and Latin without explanations/translations. It's probably a very helpful book for those planning to preach on themes around the atonement but isn't the best book for the lay Christian wanting to read around the subject.
