This is a classic statement on two pivotal doctrines of the Christian faith. William Symington thoughtfully considers Christ's atonement and intercession and provides his readers with a clear analysis of both. When looking at the atonement, he begins by defining its substitutionary nature, then addresses objections to it, its necessity, and the ample scriptural evidence of its reality. He proceeds with a closer study of Christ's sufferings and their value, extent, and outcome. Symington aptly closes by discussing Christ's work of intercession as the continued efficacy of His atoning sacrifice.
