Item description for The Extent of the Atonement: A Dilemma for Reformed Theology from Calvin to the Consensus (15361675) by G. Michael Thomas...

Overview
Reformed theologians of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were led by their doctrine of predestination to consider whether Christ had died only for 'the elect'. This work traces the way they tackled the extent of the atonement. Giving close attention to the Reformers, the debates of the Synod of Dort (1618-1619) and the Amyraldian controversy, it demonstrates that, up to and including the Swiss 'Consensus' of 1675, the Reformed Churches were never able to achieve solid and lasting agreement on this point, and aims to explain why.

Publishers Description
Reformed theologians of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were led by their doctrine of predestination to consider whether Christ had died only for the elect. This work traces the way they tackled the extent of the atonement. Giving close attention to the Reformers, the debates of the Synod of Dort (1618-1619), and the Amyraldian controversy, it demonstrates that, up to and including the Swiss "Consensus" of 1675, the Reformed Churches were never able to achieve solid and lasting agreement on this point, and aims to explain why.As it follows these debates, this work provides insights into the process of the construction of Reformed theology. It ends by suggesting that the long-lasting difficulties experienced by the Reformed over predestination and the extent of the atonement point to a need for a new departure by those who stand in the Reformed tradition today.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Extent of the Atonement (Studies in Christian History and Thought)?

Barth's atonement, for all, no justice  Nov 13, 2009

The Canons of Dordt in its Second Head of Doctrine ("Of the Death of Christ, and the Redemption of Men Thereby") is the church's definitive answer against a death of Christ for all: Christ died for the elect "and those only" (II.8). It states, moreover, that the Arminian theory of an ineffectual, universal atonement "bring[s] again out of hell the Pelagian error" -- so this is an important issue (II.R.3). The first line of the "Conclusion" to the Canons of Dordt addresses the subject of the clarity of the five points, which include limited atonement. It reads, "And this is the perspicuous, simple, and ingenuous declaration of the orthodox doctrine respecting the five articles...." Particular atonement is a "perspicuous" and "simple" doctrine. The Scriptures clearly teach it, and a little child can grasp it -- Christ died for those whom He has chosen and He did not die for those whom He passed by. G Michael Thomas provides plenty of evidence that the theories concocted by those who compromised on this article of God's truth are both various and complicated. The Arminians and the "moderate" Calvinists fall under the condemnation of the Canons' "Conclusion" as those who "controverted" the orthodox faith, "troubled" the churches, and "violated all truth, equity, and charity, in wishing to persuade the public."
