Overview

The Christian understanding of the meaning of the death of Jesus Christ and its relationship to the salvation of sinful humanity is currently the subject of intense debate and criticism. The papers covering this important area are expanded versions of the 2006 series of Chuen King Lectures given in the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

In the first two chapters Howard Marshall discusses the nature of the human plight in relation to the judgment of God and then offers a nuanced defense of the doctrine of the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ for sinners. The third chapter examines the place of the resurrection of Christ as an integral part of the process whereby sinners are put in the right with God. In the final chapter argues that in our communication of the gospel today the New Testament concept of reconciliation may be the most comprehensive and apt expression of the lasting significance of the death of Christ.

    With the Author's recent passing, I decided that it would be good to read one of his books that I hadn't read in the past - thus my choice of this book on the Atonement :) First, I would point out that this is a relatively small book on quite a weighty topic, and that the Author has basically taken 4 Lectures / Essays and edited them together to form this book. Whilst neither of these issues is a bad thing nor are they in any way hidden, I do think there was a lack of flow that would be present in a book written for a particular purposes. However, briefness is often a good thing in a book, especially if it is being used either for revision / reminding of these important issues, or as a starting point encouraging a more in-depth study. For the latter a decent biblography / suggested reading list would have been nice. I did enjoy the Author's coverage of different aspects of the Atonement - though I would've like a little more coverage of the weaknesses in the various models (eg Ransom does not invite us to ponder to whom the ransom was paid) - and the Author does at least indicate this side of things in his the concluding portions of the 4th and final part of the book. Overall, a good introduction to the historic Evangelical of the Atonement.

    This book is a practical and powerful presentation of the New Testament concept of reconciliation.
