Item description for Keeping Salvation Ethical: Mennonite and Amish Atonement Theology in the Late Nineteenth Century (Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History) by J. Denny Weaver...
Overview In this pioneering work, J. Denny Weaver analyzes late 19th century Mennonite and Amish thought on atonement, an issue of concern for all Christians. He maintains that these Anabaptists did have a theology, displayed in the lived faith and in their writings, but it was threatened by the satisfaction theory of atonement. "Thoroughly documented. . . . An excellent historical background for continuing analysis".--C. Norman Kraus, in the Foreword.
Publishers Description Here is a unique comparative study of theology across Mennonite and Amish denominational lines. J. Denny Weaver demonstrates how these eight writers tied nonresistance and atonement together, in contrast to 19th-century American evangelical theology. He uses many primary sources long neglected. This book creatively links history to theology and to the contemporary church.
Volume 35 in the Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History Series.
