Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Nothing but the Blood of Jesus, J. D. Myers walks us step-by-step through the key Bible texts on the critical themes of sin, law, sacrifice, scapegoating, and blood. I especially appreciate how Myers weaves and integrates the best of current scholarship into a cogent study that will lead any thoughtful reader to a fresh vision of Jesus Christ and a renewed love for our cruciform God of self-giving love and redemption."
-Brad Jersak, author of A More Christlike God

"Nothing but the Blood of Jesus is nothing but good. From sin to salvation, Jeremy Myers takes readers step by step through the workings of God's grace to expose the structures of scapegoating and to redeem a humanity fallen victim to the ensuing violence. Channeling René Girard and the biblical authors, Myers aptly shows how the blood of Jesus cleanses us from endless cycles of violence and takes us instead into endless cycles of divine/human forgiveness, grace, and peace for the glory of God and the furtherance of God's kingdom."
-Sharon Baker Putt, Professor of Theology and Religion, and author of Executing God

"I've spent years searching for exactly this book. Myers clearly outlines how sacrifice throughout Scripture is a human practice that God accommodates, and how Jesus changes everything with His death and resurrection! The work and research found in Nothing but the Blood of Jesus transforms the traditional way we have understood sacrifice to function in the Ancient Near East and paves the way to a fuller understanding of God's heart for humanity revealed in Jesus."
-Bruxy Cavey, Teaching Pastor at The Meeting House and author of best-selling The End of Religion and (Re)union: The Good News of Jesus for Seekers, Saints, and Sinners

"When we talk about the cross of Christ and how it is that we find salvation in it, we inevitably begin to use words like sin, law, and sacrifice. But these words are always in danger of collapsing into empty religious cliché. Thankfully, J. D. Myers takes us beyond the realm of cliché and into substantive answers in his book, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus. The chief task in atonement theology is to think about the cross in ways that do not project upon God our own sins of retributive violence. This is what Nothing but the Blood of Jesus achieves."
-Brian Zahnd, author of Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God

"Building on his previous book, The Atonement of God, the work of René Girard, and a solid grounding in the Scriptures, Jeremy Myers shares fresh and challenging insights with us about sin, law, sacrifice, scapegoating, and blood. This book reveals to us how truly precious the blood of Jesus is and the way of escaping the cycle of blame, rivalry, scapegoating, sacrifice, and violence that has plagued humanity since the time of Cain and Abel. Nothing but the Blood of Jesus is an important and timely literary contribution to a world desperately in need of the non-violent message of Jesus."
-Wesley Rostoll, author of Seeing the Cross with New Eyes

"Every Sunday, countless Evangelicals, with their embedded sacrificial mindset, sing of how the blood of Jesus washes away their sins. But what does this really mean? In Nothing but the Blood of Jesus, Myers puts forth an answer that may surprise most. With a strict adherence to both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, the author gently guides his readers through heavy issues like sin, the law, sacrifice, and scapegoating, beautifully concluding his survey with a subversive look at how the blood of Jesus, as we Christians proclaim, indeed saves us."
-Matthew J. Distefano, author of From the Blood of Abel

"Many pastors of mainline churches struggle to explain the cross to their congregations. My churches have often seen themselves as "Christmas and Easter churches," but not "Lent and Good Friday churches." The mainline church needs to reclaim Lent and Good Friday, and to do this, we need to reclaim the cross. Jeremy Myers' book Nothing but the Blood of Jesus does just that. Read this book alone or with your community to discover the radically nonviolent love of God that Jesus revealed on the cross."
-Rev. Adam Ericksen, Education Coordinator at the Raven Foundation

"Jeremy Myers, in the spirit and similar tradition of N. T. Wright, offers a theological breath of fresh air along with a practical biblical contemporary application to this ancient discussion. As one who considers himself a disciple of René Girard, I found the chapters on sacrifice and scapegoating the most meaningful and enriching to my journey to better understand the death of Jesus. I highly recommend this book to all readers who want a fresh evangelical perspective on the death of Jesus and who crave not only great scholarship but also outstanding writing."
-Jeff Burns, Peace maker, life coach, and writer

From the Author

I wrote this book as part of my online theology course, The Gospel Dictionary. This book looks at five key words from the Bible which help us better understand Scripture, God, and ourselves. The five key words are "sin, law, sacrifice, scapegoat, and blood."

These five key words are also part of The Gospel Dictionary online course, which looks at 52 key words of the Bible.
