Item Description...
Overview
Did God really pour out his wrath against sin on his Son to satisfy his own need for justice? Or did God-in-Christ forgive the world even as it unleashed its wrath against him? Was Christ's sacrifice the ultimate fulfillment of God's demand for redemptive bloodshed? Or was the cross God's great "No" to that whole system? This distinctively panoramic volume offers fresh perspectives on these and other difficult questions reemerging throughout the church today. Contributors: James Alison, Kharalambos Anstall, Mark D. Baker, Sharon Baker, Anthony Bartlett, Marcus Borg, Ronald S. Dart, E. Robert Ekblad, Andrew P. Klager, Brita Miko, C. F. D. Moule, Wayne Northey, Nathan Rieger, Richard Rohr, Miroslav Volf, J.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
weak effort to discredit the doctrine of penal substitution  Jan 30, 2008
As other reviewers have noted this book is poorly edited. But the main problem with it is that most of the authors espouse unbiblical ideas about the death of Christ. Some of the essays are downright pitiful attempts to discredit the doctrine of penal substitution. Only a few make any attempt to actually argue from Scripture.

If you are looking for a book on the *biblical* teaching on the atonement, keep looking.
 
a really weak collection of essays on the atonement  Jan 12, 2008
This is not one of the better books I've read on the atonement of Christ. Some of these authors should definitely be doing other things with their time.

A much better collection of essays on the atonement is "The Glory of the Atonement: Biblical, Historical & Practical Perspectives : Essays in Honor of Roger R. Nicole" edited by Hill and James.
 
comic book theology  Jan 4, 2008
As a theology book this volume is a joke. As a snapshot of the sorry condition of contemporary quasi-evangelicalism this book is somewhat helpful.

If you are looking for a good book on the doctrine of the atonement, keep looking. This text definitely doesn't fit the bill.
 
Worth Every Penny  Dec 12, 2007
Some reviewers are obviously committed up front to a penal satisfaction view of the atonement. Notice that no negative reviewer takes on the substance of the book leaning instead on ad hominem arguments, typical of an extremist approach. I also hope, that in addition to the contributors, readers will notice the heavyweights like Girard, Caputo, Heim, Hauerwas, Boyd and McLaren that LOVED the book. They certainly carry more weight than anonymous on line reviewers.

The fact that seven of the twenty essays are reprints cannot be held against the collection, this is one of the books strengths in that it brings together major and minor voices, theologians and laity, Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox all to the table around the common rejection of penal satisfaction and the positing of a life giving alternative to understanding Jesus' death and resurrection.

I hope potential purchasers of the book are more discerning than some concrete (all mixed up and permanatly set) anonymous reviewers.
 
Greater Hope for a More Meaningful Atonement  Dec 11, 2007
I am really enjoying reading Stricken by God. It presents both new and republished scholarship from a veritable who's-who of quality biblical scholars and theologians including Miroslav Volf, Richard Rohr, NT Wright and James Alison. The contributors (contrary to what some negative reviewers have implied) to not present a single unified atonement model; they come from a variety of disciplines and persuasions regarding the meaning and significance of Jesus' death and resurrection. What they are all committed to is a deep desire for dialogue and truth. You will come away from these essays with a renewed appreciation for the rich tapestry of atonement in Scripture, as well as a fresh sensitivity for the concerns of contemporary faithful and seekers alike. Highly recommended as a companion to The Nonviolent Atonement, Recovering the Scandal of the Cross, and A Community Called Atonement.
