Item description for The Nature of The Atonement by John McLeod Campbell...
'A theology of the atonement should move one to worship and prayer. J. McLeod Campbell does exactly that. Much in harmony with the renewed interest in the Trinity, McLeod Campbell reawakens the doctrine of the atonement, the 'sleeping giant' of Christian doctrine, with its rich implications for spirituality and ministry.... The church today needs a new biblical paradigm of the atonement as is found in The Nature of the Atonement, which sees the atonement as the development of the incarnation of God and therefore as the manifestation of God as love.' - from Christian D. Kettler, Friends University With a new introduction by James B. Torrance.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Nature of The Atonement?
Worth the effort. Oct 8, 2004
The book's style almost makes it unaccessible, the author's long, tortured, run-on sentences frequently requiring a few "re-reads" (hence 4 instead of 5 stars!). However, the depth and originality of insights the author brings to the subject matter is well worth the effort. He effectively questions the excessively "penal" or legal view of atonement that has characterized most protestant and catholic theology. The result is a refreshing, and very Christ centered look at the cross, which emphasizes the incarnation, the perfect Sonship, the trust, the "confession" of his brother's sins, as key elements of the suffering of Christ. This book will undoubtedly challenge you and will be influential to the thinking of any student of the atonement.
