JeffAge: 18-24Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5I thought it was a Christian book! its not!July 14, 2012JeffAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1This book openly mocks the idea that God does not forgive sin "without the shedding of blood". It is very, very well written in terms of scholarship but it denies that the sacrificial system was actually of divine origin, and it basically denies the divine authority of Scripture except for certain parts of the Gospels that suit the author. This false gospel message saves no one and there are many hurting dying people out there who need the real truth, not this false gospel message. It is not just a "different perspective" and I am not being divisive over a small issue- the author says the cross is primitive mythology which is no longer convincing! (p.120), It calls the forgiveness of sins at the cross "magic" (119 and all throughout the book). It denies the virgin birth (119), It says man's problem is not sin, but "immaturity" (123). and concludes we should be free by "outgrowing the doctrines of an arbitrary and punishing God" (124)
David Glass5 Stars Out Of 5August 20, 2008David GlassDistilled to its essence, the subject of the atonement is thoroughly researched and covered in this magnificent theological and historical report on the development of this crucial and critical Christian doctrine. Readers are provided with abundant information and background in the light of which to achieve a far better-informed opinion and appreciation of the true facts, meanings, and values implicit, explicit, and implied in the long-lived ascendancy of the atonement idea. Recommended reading for anyone contemplating the nature of God, man, Jesus and their relationships in the annals of history and in the transcendant realms of the heretofore and the hereafter. Carries its replete scholarship with eminent readability and attention-holding interest-value. Highly recommended!
