D 8 On the Atonement: Examining the Debates on Christ’s Reconciling Work


The atonement is a central Christian doctrine that has taxed some of the most important minds in history, resulting in a ‘maze’ of views on Christ’s reconciling work.

This concise study invites readers to sample a flavour of the contemporary debates surrounding the atonement. In doing so, its central message is to exercise care in what we say, and to extend grace to others with whom we disagree on this topic.
