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.
'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.
