Item Description...
Overview
Recently, much has been written on Atonement theory that would suggest that the Christian message could be re-interpreted for post-modern times. While the desire to communicate with the new generation is well intended, we must not stray from the gospel writers. The Jesus Gopel reminds its readers of the original intent of God's Word and directs our attention back to the original passages dealing with this important and timeless issue.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Response to Steve Chalke's Lost Message of Jesus  Oct 19, 2008
Has the message of Jesus been lost all these years? That is the question that Liam Goligher asks and answers in The Jesus Gospel: Recovering the Lost Message - a response to Steve Chalke's Lost Message of Jesus.

The Jesus Gospel summarizes the penal substitutionary model of the atonement. Goligher breaks down the biblical story into 3 acts, with different scenes in each Act. He then seeks to demonstrate how the substitutionary model of the atonement is the thread running all throughout Scripture. Goligher takes occasional swipes at Chalke's "cosmic child abuse" statement, but the bulk of this book is not merely a defense of penal substution, but a case for seeing the doctrine everywhere - both in the Old and New Testaments.

Several times, while reading The Jesus Gospel, I felt I was reading an older book by a pastor in the 1800's. Don't misunderstand me. That's not a bad thing. The attitude of the book says: This theory has stood the test of time. In that regard, the book is a success.

The book falters somewhat in the style of writing for today's layperson. I haven't quite figured out who this book is written for. An educated pastor or church leader will have little difficulty reading The Jesus Gospel, but I can't imagine the book holding the interest of most laypeople. Unfortunately, The Lost Message of Jesus comes across as much more readable and winsome, even as The Jesus Gospel contains better theology.

Goligher avoids some of the problems in the penal-substitution model. He continually reminds his readers that the atonement is about God's love - God taking his own wrath upon himself in the person of Jesus Christ. He emphasizes the resurrection toward the end, the triumph of the Lamb, and the victory of Christ over sin and death. I would have liked to have seen more emphasis on the Church as the community created by the atonement, but alas, a book only has so much space.

If you're looking for a concise, well-written book that lays out the evidence for seeing the penal substitutionary model of the atonement throughout Scripture, I recommend The Jesus Gospel.
