Stephen Holmes has been described as one of the bright lights of the new generation of evangelical theologians. In this book he offers an accessible and enlightening account of the way the saving work of Jesus is presented in the Bible, and has been understood throughout Christian history. In particular, the book offers background to the current debates about penal substitutionary atonement by looking at that idea in biblical and historical perspective. Holmes argues that we can, and should, continue to talk of the cross in penal substitutionary terms, if we understand this as one of many complimentary descriptions of the salvation we find in Christ.

Stephen R Holmes

Stephen R. Holmes (Ph.D., King's College, London)is a Baptist Minister and Lecturer in Theology at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.


Presently he is working on a book on the theology of John Calvin, and a popular level book on the atonement, offering a cautious defence of penal substitution. He plans further work on the atonement, including conference papers, contributions to books, and a monograph, on the doctrine of God; this will begin with a monograph on the history of Trinitarian doctrine, but will focus on differing estimations of the relationship between Trinitarian and Christological dogma, and the perfections of God.


Selected publications: God of Grace and God of Glory: An Account of the Theology of Jonathan Edwards(Edinburgh and Grand Rapids, MI: T&T Clark and Eerdmans, 2000); The Practice of Theology (with Colin Gunton and Murray Rae - London: SCM Press, 2001); Listening to the Past: The Place of Tradition in Theology (Carlisle and Grand Rapids, MI: Paternoster Press and Baker Academic, 2002); The Use of the Bible in Pastoral Practice: A Reader (ed., with Paul Ballard) (DLT; 2005)


Most recently he has published The Holy Trinity: Understanding God's life (Christian Doctrine in Historical Perspective)(Paternoster, 2011)
