Preaching the Atonement explores some classic texts which throw light on the atonement. Each chapter focuses on a key Biblical passage, offering a theological commentary which will help both preachers and church members gain a deeper understanding of the atoning work of Christ. Each chapter contains a sermon on the chosen text, illustrating how these themes may be communicated to contemporary congregations. Seeking to be sensitive to the literary forms of the chosen texts, these sermons employ a range of homiletical strategies. The sermons are drawn from the works of preachers on both sides of the Atlantic. Preaching the Atonement assumes that the preacher's role is not to squeeze every passage of Scripture into the same mould. Each passage bears witness to another aspect of the many splendored work of Christ; as the preacher invites the congregation to listen to the testimony of this cloud of biblical witnesses.

Table of Contents:
1. The Cost of a Father’s Commitment: Genesis 22:1-19
2. Taking Away Their Iniquities: Leviticus 16:15-22
3. The Suffering of a Servant: Isaiah 52:13-53:12
4. The Crucified God: Mark 15:25-39
5. Forgiveness From the Cross: Luke 23:32-43
6. The Word Became Flesh: John 1:1-14
7. The Achievement of God’s Justice: Romans 3:21-26
8. The Reconciliation of the World: 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:2
9. The Decisive Victory: Colossians 2:8-15
10. The Final Sacrifice: Hebrews 9:11-14

Preaching the Atonement is a thoughtful and provocative book on a most important topic. Any preacher who has shied away from preaching about the difficult themes of the cross and the atonement will, by virtue of the solid biblical essays and the creative sermons in this volume, be encouraged to take the plunge into the deep end of the theological pool.”
