The Nature of the Atonement

Full Product Description

A long history of biblical exegesis and theological reflection has shaped our understanding of the atonement today. The more prominent highlights of this history have acquired familiar names for the household of faith: Christus Victor, penal substitutionary, subjective, and governmental.

Recently the penal substitutionary view, and particularly its misappropriations, has been critiqued, and a lively debate has taken hold within evangelicalism. This book offers a "panel" discussion of four views of atonement maintained by four evangelical scholars.

The proponents and their views are:

Gregory A. Boyd: Christus Victor viewJoel B. Green: Kaleidescopic viewBruce R. Reichenbach: Healing viewThomas R. Schreiner: Penal Substitutionary view

Following an introduction written by the editors, each participant first puts forth the case for their view. Each view is followed by responses from the other three participants, noting points of agreement as well as disagreement.

This is a book that will help Christians understand the issues, grasp the differences and proceed toward a clearer articulation of their understanding of the atonement.

The Nature of the Atonement by Gregory A.(Ed Boyd; James K. Beilby; Paul R. Eddy was published by Intervarsity Press in November 2006 and is our 36217th best seller. The ISBN for The Nature of the Atonement is 9780830825707.

'Those looking for evangelical and scripturally founded treatments of the atonement will find this book a lively register of current opinions.'
Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 2007

'The directness of the responses is a strength of the book. It serves to highlight differences, expose weak points, and provide the reader with questions and issues to pursue. The book makes a positive contribution both through highlighting the diversity of thinking about the atonement within evangelicalism and through encouraging discussion about this diversity.'
Mark D. Baker, Religious Studies Review,
