The doctrine of the atonement lives again in this magnum opus of one of the great Scottish theologians of the 19th century. Once branded a heretic by his denomination, Campbell shares the good news of a God who reveals himself as a "lover" and not simply as a "lawgiver." 294 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
'A theology of the atonement should move one to worship and prayer. J. McLeod Campbell does exactly that. Much in harmony with the renewed interest in the Trinity, McLeod Campbell reawakens the doctrine of the atonement, the 'sleeping giant' of Christian doctrine, with its rich implications for spirituality and ministry.... The church today needs a new biblical paradigm of the atonement as is found in The Nature of the Atonement, which sees the atonement as the development of the incarnation of God and therefore as the manifestation of God as love.' - from Christian D. Kettler, Friends University With a new introduction by James B. Torrance.
