The time-honored theology that the Reformation bequeathed to us is now being discounted even in many evangelical churches. New perspectives challenge old verities. The need to return to biblical foundations is urgent. In Divine Redemption and the Refuge of Faith, Douglas Vickers has raised the pressing questions: Who is Jesus Christ? What is the human condition? And in what respect is that human condition addressed by the presence of Jesus Christ in the world? In lucid and arresting terms, Dr. Vickers provides answers developed from three basic theses that structured Reformation thought: o the claim of Athanasius against the Arians and the Sabellians that the self-existing, autotheotic Second Person of the Godhead came as Jesus Christ; o the doctrine of Augustine who rightly argued against Pelagius that the human will was bound in sin as a result of Adamfs fall; and o the teaching of Anselm who returned theology to its biblical roots when he claimed that Christ in his atonement provided a necessary and complete satisfaction for sin. Divine Redemption and the Refuge of Faith provides a biblical-theological corrective to contemporary doctrinal deviations. It is recommended to all who are committed to the unchanging truths of the Christian confession, and will be of substantial benefit to Christians seeking a biblical explanation of the state of affairs in the world and in the church, as well as to theological students and the academic community.
