Calvin and the Atonement will be of great value to those with an interest in reformation and theology or- not quite the same thing- with getting help on a thoroughgoing biblical spin on the work of Christ. (Paul Helm, Themelios)
"This is a brilliant little book for preachers to read and re-read...Calvin's teaching on the atonement is rich and multi-faceted." (Banner of Truth)
"Calvin dealt with Christ's saving ministry, as with all other biblical themes, in a different way.... Dr. Peterson's monograph lays out the elements of this synthesis in a way that Calvin himself would certainly have approved. The task has not been tackled in print before in so adequate a manner, and this essay is something of a milestone. I commend it heartily, both as a fine contribution to modern Calvin studies and as a worthy presentation of insights into a central theme of scripture from one of the greatest Bible expositors of all time." (J. I. Packer ~ Well known author & Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada)
"Rather than fall into the trap of insisting on one 'theory' of the atonement, John Calvin recognised that the biblical teaching presents us with a multi-faceted jewel. His brilliant exposition stressed the many-sidedness and the profundity of the work of Christ. The great strength of Dr Robert Peterson's work lies in his grasps of Calvin's biblical vision and the clarity and enthusiasm with which he expounds it. Sixteen years after its first publication this revised edition of Calvin and the Atonement will be welcomed by a new generation of readers." (Sinclair B. Ferguson ~ Associate Preacher, St. Peter's Free Church, Dundee)
