The Glory of the Atonement

The Glory of the Atonement

$30.99

Paperback

The atonement is the crown jewel of Christian doctrine. And it is the responsibility of each generation of theologians to preserve its heritage, explore its facets and allow its radiance to illumine their day. THE GLORY OF THE ATONEMENT is an attempt to fulfil this trust at the dawn of a new millennium.

In this book evangelical biblical scholars explore the atonement within the contours of Scripture, while historical and systematic theologians weigh the atonement in ancient, medieval and Reformation tradition. The primary focus is on the Reformed tradition, which is traced up to Karl Barth and evangelicalism, capped with a consideration of the atonement and postmodernism. The implications of the atonement are brought home with a look at the atonement in contemporary preaching and Christian living. The result is a full-course feast for ministers of the word, a textbook for students of the Bible and theology, and a valuable resource for any theological library.

The atonement is the crown jewel of Christian doctrine. And it is the responsibility of each generation of theologians to preserve its heritage, explore its facets and allow its radiance to illumine their day. With The Glory of the Atonement editors Charles E. Hill and Frank A. James III, along with a group of expert contributors, attempt to fulfill this trust at the dawn of a new millennium. The Glory of the Atonement is divided into three parts--biblical, historical and practical--with each section introduced by an overview essay. In part one evangelical biblical scholars explore the atonement within the contours of Scripture, looking first at the atonement in the Pentateuch, Psalm 51 and Isaiah 53, and then more closely at the major texts of the New Testament. In part two historical and systematic theologians weigh the atonement in the ancient, medieval and Reformation traditions. The primary perspective of the contributors is the Reformed tradition, which is further represented by essays on John Calvin, Herman Bavinck and Karl Barth. A timely capstone to this historical view is a stimulating consideration of the atonement and postmodernism. Finally, the implications of the atonement are brought home in part three with a look at the atonement in contemporary preaching and Christian living. Here is a full-course feast for ministers of the Word, a textbook for students of the Bible and theology, and a valuable resource for any theological library.
