Jesus, though, is far more than a victim. When God receives and approves the condemned Jesus God transcends the world of oppressor and victim to create a new humanity, capable of new kinds of relationships. Atonement speaks of a transition from brokenness, alienation and the death of love to a place of restoration, healing, and wholeness. A place that holds out hope for deepening friendships and mutual confidence---the exact same things the post-modern mind is lacking, and is looking for.

The post-modern society is so focussed on the internal life of the individual that it makes the significance of the cross a difficult concept to grasp. Even Christians are trying to find alternative ways of explaining it - some have abandoned the concept of atonement entirely.
Jesus, though, is far more than a victim. When God receives and approves the condemned Jesus he transcends the world of oppressor and victim to create a new humanity, capable of new kinds of relationships. Atonement speaks of a transition from brokenness, alienation and the death of love to a place of restoration, healing, and wholeness. A place that holds out hope for deepening friendships and mutual confidence - the exact same things the post-modern mind is lacking, and is looking for.
...No other theme is more influential in capturing your heart in thanksgiving and worship... Rooted deeply in Biblical revelation, Paul Wells challenges recent contemporary thought and establishes the absolute necessity of Christ's sufferings on our behalf.
Wells has performed a remarkable and necessary service for the 21st century church. Taking on all the major opponents of the doctrine of the atonement, Wells answers their objections with convincing and balanced arguments. He looks at every possible aspect of this profound doctrine... Satisfying to your mind, this is also a text that will move you to tears and to praise.
"Paul Wells...unwraps the various words and their meaning in this substantial treatment. Concepts such as love, Justice, Mediator, Violence, Sacrifice, and many move from the basis of the book but he also interacts with modern objections of Atonement of atonement showing a deep insight into how the atonement is relevant to post-modern culture."
'Paul Wells faces head-on the modern (and not-so-modern) challenges to a Biblical viewpoint on the atonement. He evaluates knowledgeably and fairly the most significant denials on such crucial issues as the wrath of God, penal substitution, imputation and propitiation.... It will be an important aid for those who wish to preach effectively the Gospel'
'This is a satisfying book about the atonement, written by a man of God who lives in the biblical text, and yet is in close touch with the real world and today's church. Who can fail to profit from a book like this?'
'Paul is emerging as one of the premier evangelical theologians of our day. Cross Words is at once accessible and erudite.'
David M.5 Stars Out Of 5November 2, 2009David M.It's the best book I read about the atonement doctrine, susbtitution, cross, etc. Dr Paul Wells is deep writer and very good teacher. He hols his Ph.D from Free University of Amsterdam and receive an Ph.D (HC) from Westminster Seminary. Good reading !
Todd Pruitt5 Stars Out Of 5March 13, 2008Todd PruittOne of the best books on the doctrine of the atonement I have ever read. Scholarly in quality but accessable. Wells interacts well with the various theories that deny the doctrine of Christ's substitution for sinners. Ultimately the author demonstrates the biblical support and theological coherance of Penal Substitution.
