A Short History of the Doctrine of the Atonement


Longman, Manchester University Press 1920

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This brief history of the doctrine of the atonement is the outcome of a series of lectures given to Grensted’s theological students, in the course of which he found the difficulty of referring students to the voluminous amount of sources on the subject. His goal was to fill this gap in the literature on the atonement by collating the numerous sources in a systematic way for quick reference. He traces the doctrine of the atonement from the first two centuries up to the twentieth century.
