The argument of this book is that judgment, understood as the whole process of bringing justice, is the primary metaphor of atonement, along with other metaphors—such as victory, redemption, and sacrifice—which are subordinate to it. Judgment also provides the proper context for understanding penal substitution and the calls to repentance, baptism, Eucharist, and holiness.
