By Henry William Clark

A study of the doctrine of the Atonement from an Evangelical perspective.

ISBN: 9780227170649


A major study of the doctrine of the Atonement from an Evangelical perspective, showing its theological and historical significance. The author explores the views of patristic, medieval, Reformation and modern theologians, but the whole work is based on a profoundly Biblical understanding. At the same time it reconciles theological and philosophical thinking in such a way that both receive and exercise their full rights. The Christian view of the world-order is shown as providing the final fact of the eternal order when God shall be seen as all in all.
