Description

The post-modern society is so focussed on the internal life of the individual that it makes the significance of the cross a difficult concept to grasp. Even Christians are trying to find alternative ways of explaining it - some have abandoned the concept of atonement entirely.

Jesus, though, is far more than a victim. When God receives and approves the condemned Jesus he transcends the world of oppressor and victim to create a new humanity, capable of new kinds of relationships. Atonement speaks of a transition from brokenness, alienation and the death of love to a place of restoration, healing, and wholeness. A place that holds out hope for deepening friendships and mutual confidence - the exact same things the post-modern mind is lacking, and is looking for.

Wells has performed a remarkable and necessary service for the 21st century church. Taking on all the major opponents of the doctrine of the atonement, Wells answers their objections with convincing and balanced arguments. He looks at every possible aspect of this profound doctrine... Satisfying to your mind, this is also a text that will move you to tears and to praise.
