The Doctrine of the Atonement, As Taught by the Apostles


T&T Clark 1870

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Thanks to George Smeaton's faithful use of his exceptional gifts as a theologian and exegete, The Doctrine of the Atonement, As Taught by the Apostles is a brilliant study, serving as both a doctrinal discourse on the atonement, and a treatise on the key passages in the New Testament. One of the features of this insightful book, which serves to make it so relevant and important to us today, is the author's examination and explanation of every passage of the Bible dealing with the atonement. A by-product of addressing each and every verse pertinent to the subject is that the book is redundant in a most effective way—delivering the same messages repeatedly from slightly different perspectives, thus enhancing, embellishing, and deepening the reader's understanding of the gospel. Smeaton’s comprehensive biblical approach to the doctrine of the atonement makes an important book for understanding a scriptural approach to the various theories of atonement, as well as a clear-headed overview of the issues surrounding the current debate over the atonement.

Praise for the Print Edition

Smeaton was an outstanding scholar with a brilliant mind and a deep love for Christ. . . .
