Product Description

The Glory of the Atonement offers a wide selection of essays by notable scholars in the Reformed tradition presented in honor of Roger Nicole. Divided into three sections-biblical, historical and practical-the essays include Scriptural exegesis of important atonement passages, studies in historical theology examining particular Christian thinkers and eras, and probing inquiries into the practical implications of the doctrine in the Christian life and in contemporary preaching. This insightful and wide-ranging volume includes contributions from Henri Blocher, D.A. Carson, Timothy George, Bruce McCormack, J.I. Packer, Kevin Vanhoozer, and Bruce Waltke, all of whom, examine the atonement from their respective fields of expertise. Although the doctrine of the atonement has fallen under strong criticism in recent times, this volume offers constructive proposals and exegetical foundations for understanding some of its major facets, applying those insights to Christian living, and recapturing the awe of this wondrous doctrine.

Publisher's Description

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.
