Item Description...
A Biblical understanding of sacrifice as a gift is examined in historical context of other theories of atonement.

Publishers Description
The cross lies at the heart of Christian faith and yet in a fast-changing cultural context many Christians are struggling to make sense of the atonement and how best to communicate its meaning. Larry Shelton grasps this bull by the horns and sets forth what he considers to be both a solidly biblical and missionaly relevant account of Christ's atoning work. At the core of Shelton's thesis is the claim that covenant relationship has to form the centre of our theological reflections on the cross. Moving through both Old and New Testaments, Shelton argues that all the diverse metaphors for atonement can be held together by the organizing notion of 'covenant relationship'. Then, tracing the history of theologies of the cross from the second century through to the contemporary world, he sets forth a Trinitarian, relational and contemporary model of the atonement that parts company with penal substitutionary accounts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Controversial atonement discussion  Feb 11, 2008
The author maintains that traditional evangelical penal substitution theory of the atonement can be a hindrance to mission in both the postmodern context and in non-Western indigenous missional cultures. He challenges the exclusive claims that the penal view is the only orthodox evangelical position. This book seeks to provide a model of the atonement that is relevant to post-modern people, biblical, and Trinitarian. To do this he engages in a study of atonement in the Old Testament and New Testament as well as the history of theology. He argues that if covenant is taken as the central core of atonement theology we can do justice both to the diversity of biblical ways of speaking of atonement and the diversity of atonement models in Christian theology. The incarnation, cross, and resurrection of Christ are all essential to his atoning work. He makes use of the image of his own life-saving heart transplant operation to understand the atonement. The book is academic reading, but well-researched and a valuable resource for communicating with the postmodern and global culture.
