Item description for Interpreting the Atonement by Robert H. Culpepper...
In this widely praised volume Robert H. Culpepper places the doctrine of the atonement at the center of the Christian faith and carries on his discussion of it against the background of a biblical understanding of sin, presenting the Old Testament foundations, the New Testament witness, and various historical interpretations. He concludes with a constructive statement of the doctrine that will serve the reader well as a guide to a deeper understanding of Christianity and its practice in today's world. "I regard this as the ablest and most helpful general work on the doctrine of the atonement that is currently available. The treatment is judiciously balanced between the biblical, historical, and reconstructive aspects of the subject." - W. Boyd Hunt Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary "Comprehensive and balanced in its approach. . . . Biblically grounded. . . . A solid, helpful study." - I. John Hesselink Western Theological Seminary Robert H. Culpepper served as a Southern Baptist missionary and seminary teaching in Japan for thirty years before returning permanently to the United States in 1980. He is professor emeritus at Southeastern Baptist Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina.

The Cross is Central Aug 3, 2003
Bob Culpepper was my theology professor and mentor when I was in theological school. His influence continues to this day.
This book is a very biblical examination of the cross of the Christ. It is often mentioned in other books on the same subject. Culpepper leaves no stone unturned in his investigation of the Bible's teaching on the death of Christ. The writing is clear and concise, but also has power and depth. I have a friend who has used this book in classes he teaches on the atonement in a graduate school of theology. I can't recommend it high enough. Whenever I preach on the atonement I use this book.
Dr. Culpepper would want readers to know that his views matured over the years after he read John Stott's, _The Cross of Christ_. Both books are rich and will reward any reader who takes the time to work through them.
