Offers a nonviolent paradigm for understanding salvation
^^A provocative study that cuts to the very heart of Christian thought, The Nonviolent Atonement explores the nature and history - and the inherent shortcomings - of the classic Christian understanding of the doctrine of atonement.


^^J. Denny Weaver exposes the intrinsically violent dimensions of the traditional, Anselmian satisfaction atonement view and offers instead a thoroughly nonviolent paradigm for understanding atonement based on the concept of "narrative Christus Victor." He challenges essentially violent assumptions that justice depends on retribution and that passive, innocent submission to violence is essential for atonement.^^
-Publisher.



This text challenges the traditional, Anselmian understanding of atonement - along with the assumption that heavenly justice depends on Christ's passive, innocent submission to violent death at the hands of a cruel God. Weaver offers a nonviolent paradigm for understanding atonement, grounded in the New Testament.
