"The Extent of the Atonement offers a penetrating and perceptive treatment of a thorny, divisive theological issue. David Allens command of the subject as well as his ability to lay out clearly and fairly the competing theories and arguments is masterful. I found his critique of the doctrine of limited atonement fully persuasive. This book is must reading for all who want to understand better the Calvinism debate."
—Craig A. Evans, dean of the School of Christian Thought and John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
"The issue of limited atonement has proved a controversial matter for many years and one that is unlikely to disappear at any time in the near future. One of the reasons for this is that the question it seeks to answer is one which developed over time and has a number of subtle and sophisticated facets. . . . While David Allen and I disagree on the matter, this work is an irenic and learned contribution to the topic which carries the historical, and thus doctrinal, discussion forward in an extremely helpful way. I am thus happy to recommend this work of a friendly critic. It deserves wide readership and careful engagement."
—Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Chair of Church History and professor of church history, Westminster Theological Seminary
