Product Description

From the publisher: John Calvin had a profound understanding of the atoning work of Christ. In this book Robert Peterson first examines what Calvin says regarding the love of God, the Incarnation, and Christ's offices of prophet, priest and king. He goes on to consider Calvin's comments on other aspects of Christ's work: he is the second Adam, the victor, the substitute, the sacrifice and the example.

Publisher's Description

John Calvin had a profound understanding of the atoning work of Christ. His writings are still one of the major sources scholars and others rely on to give insight into what was accomplished by Jesus on the cross.

In this book Robert Peterson first examines what Calvin says regarding the love of God, the Incarnation, and Christ's offices of prophet, priest and king. He goes on to consider Calvin's comments on other aspects of Christ's work: he is the second Adam, the victor, the substitute, the sacrifice and the example.

Author Bio

Robert Peterson is Professor of Systematic Theology at Covenant Theological Seminary, St Louis, Missouri. He has authored and edited a host of other books including Calvin and the Atonement.

Editorial Reviews

Calvin and the Atonement will be of great value to those with an interest in reformation and theology or- not quite the same thing- with getting help on a thoroughgoing biblical spin on the work of Christ.
"This is a brilliant little book for preachers to read and re-read...Calvin's teaching on the atonement is rich and multi-faceted."
"Calvin dealt with Christ's saving ministry, as with all other biblical themes, in a different way.... Dr. Peterson's monograph lays out the elements of this synthesis in a way that Calvin himself would certainly have approved. The task has not been tackled in print before in so adequate a manner, and this essay is something of a milestone. I commend it heartily, both as a fine contribution to modern Calvin studies and as a worthy presentation of insights into a central theme of scripture from one of the greatest Bible expositors of all time."
"Rather than fall into the trap of insisting on one 'theory' of the atonement, John Calvin recognised that the biblical teaching presents us with a multi-faceted jewel. His brilliant exposition stressed the many-sidedness and the profundity of the work of Christ. The great strength of Dr Robert Peterson's work lies in his grasps of Calvin's biblical vision and the clarity and enthusiasm with which he expounds it. Sixteen years after its first publication this revised edition of Calvin and the Atonement will be welcomed by a new generation of readers."

    Excellent thorough summary of Calvin's thoughts on the finished work of Christ. Calvin got it right at a time when the heart of the Gospel message was being muted.
