Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is essentially a survey of atonement ideas through history starting with the expectation of the Old Testament illustrated in Isaiah. He then moves on the Luke (both books) and Paul. After this foundation, he moves into modern theories starting with Moral Influence. The most striking think to me is to see how quickly the story drifts away from the hope of the deliverance of the faithful remnant of Israel to an individual story of how a person can get into heaven. Like all of Brondos' work I've read so far, this one is very clearly thought out and presented. If you study atonement I don't think you can afford to skip this one.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. David Crews on February 9, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While there are some helpful, practical reflections throughout this book, it is littered with comments which are indicative of historic-liberal-criticism strangely reminding me of some German pre-world war II thinkers that Karl Barth contended with. The author seems to "attack" and "raise questions" without elaborating on possible answers for the sake of casting doubt on the subjects he is writing on, I noticed. A bit too negative for my tastes. Save your money and find another theologian to study, unless you are attracted to this type of overly academic skepticism.
