Item Description...
A carefuly argued, truly groundbreaking exploration of Christ's death and of atonement theology.

Publishers Description
The cross has long been not only a scandal but also a profound paradox: filled with saving significance and power, it is at the same time a sobering tragedy. In "Saved from Sacrifice" theologian Mark Heim takes on this paradox, asserting that the cross must be understood against the whole history of human scapegoating violence.
In order to highlight the dimensions of his argument, Heim carefully and critically draws on the groundbreaking work of French theorist and biblical scholar Rene Girard. Yet Heim goes beyond Girard to develop a comprehensive theology of the atonement and the cross through his fresh readings of well-known biblical passages and his exploration of the place of the victim.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A superb work of atonement theology  Mar 17, 2007
I am a professor of theology with an interest in the doctrine of the atonement. I recommend this book very highly. It draws on Rene Girard's anthropological theory of violence, interprets key passages from the Bible, surveys the history of atonement thought, touches on historical examples of violence such as slavery, and presents a constructive theological and ethical perspective on atonement. I wish I could make this book required reading for all seminarians.
outstanding book  Mar 9, 2007
I have been critical of our standard atonement theories. But, this book, following the work of Rene Girard, Gil Bailie and others, is outstanding. It gives so much substance to a number of scriptural passages that have been poorly interpreted or overlooked.
A much needed new look at the Atonement.  Sep 2, 2006
I wanted to write a brief review of S Mark Heim's new book. I found a lot of good arguments in this book. He states in the beginning that his focus is on this new insight on the Atoning death of Jesus Christ, that has been put forth by French Philosopher Rene Girard. The Anthropological insights on the ScapeGoating propensities of Human Nature, are right on target In my opinion. Also the fact that people and Nations often unite in the mutual hatred of another to take the stress of their own inner tensions away. Heim writes how in the New Testament Pilate and Herod who disliked each other became friends after a sort, in their Abuse of Jesus. There are many other facets to the arguments of the book. Its one of those books that I will read again and refer to in the future. I need to read it again, for one reason to get a better grasp of the argument being put forth. As just a laymen, it is a bit of hard reading at times, but Heim makes difficult material accessible. I recommend this book, and I hope it stirs some reflection on what the Death of Jesus means for us all. As a Christian who struggles with doubt, I still am convinced that Jesus and Christianity is the worlds only real hope. Not a popular opinion to hold, but one that I think is true nevertheless. Thanks for listening. Richard from Bradford PA.
