Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“In the Christian consciousness, the forgiveness of sins and the death of Christ are intimately and absolutely related. But when it comes to defining the nature of the connection, explanations differ, theories are found to be contradictory, and the discussion commenced nineteen centuries ago still goes on.” Louis Auguste Sabatier’s treatise applies the historical method to the study of the doctrine of the atonement. In doing so, it shows the nature and fruitfulness of the method. Sabatier divides his study of the doctrine into two parts: the biblical conceptions of the atonement and the ecclesiastical conceptions.
