The Death of Christ: Its Place and Interpretation in the New Testament


Hodder and Stoughton 1902

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Exploring a topic that has received relatively little modern scholarship, Denney produces a volume that synthesizes Christianity as a theology and a religion via the death of Christ. Hoping to use theology and religious apologetic as an evangelistic tool, Denney covers the death of Christ as it is treated throughout each New Testament book and concludes with its evidence of atonement and what it means for Christians today.

Praise for the Print Edition

Dr. Denney laid great stress upon Christ’s physical sufferings. He emphasized the substitutionary nature of His sacrifice and expounded its effects to the believer with evangelical zeal. Such was his aversion to the teachings of certain mystics on the subject of the Atonement that he avoided all identification with mystical belief. In spite of this, his work on the death of Christ remains one of the most definitive discussions produced to date.
