The Doctrine of the Atonement


Hodder and Stoughton 1888

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Written as a catechism, the author of this dialogue, while fully acknowledging the unfathomable mystery of the atonement—a mystery that lies in the inscrutable depths of the infinite itself—endeavors to discover, so far as that is possible, the real significance of the doctrine. Edwards seeks to present the true conception of the atonement and to show that our inability to comprehend it arises from the mystery of the infinite, not from any inconsistency or unreality in the doctrine itself.
