I’ve been sitting here waiting to hear if “our” new book, A Community called Atonement, is available and I’m happy to say that it is now in stock at Amazon.com. The issue of atonement is, as you may know, both central to the gospel and has amazingly drawn so much controversy of late that I hope this book can put out some of those fires. Maybe some will find a reason to debate the book’s theses as well. The next book in this series from Abingdon (with Emergent) will by John Franke on truth and pluralism.
Every presentation of the gospel, every catechism and nearly every sermon has a theory of atonement at work. Ever notice this?
