New PDF release: Atonement and Violence: A Theological Conversation

By Hans Boersma,T. Scott Daniels,Thomas N. Finger,J. Denny Weaver,John Sanders

contemporary years have witnessed a chain of books, articles, and lectures elevating critical questions on the Christian doctrine of the Atonement.   whereas coming from quite a few resources, the questions often focus on the principal factor of atonement and violence. Doesn’t the Atonement advertise the belief of violence at the a part of God? if this is the case, isn’t such violence incompatible with a God of affection? Doesn’t this doctrine ship the incorrect sign, excusing and maybe even selling things like baby abuse? Is it time to desert what has turn into an outdated and destructive doctrine? 
The authors of this publication declare that to desert the Christian doctrine of the Atonement is to desert the valuable witness of the gospel, for atonement speaks of not anything lower than God’s reconciliation of the realm within the lifestyles, loss of life, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. notwithstanding, to think within the atoning dying of Jesus Christ doesn't suggest that one believes that God has engaged in cosmic baby abuse. Drawing at the classical theories of the Atonement, accomplishing artistic theological building, they current set of cogent, cohesive choices to both rejecting the doctrine out of hand, or uncritically accepting it.

Denny Weaver, Bluffton collage: “Narrative Christus Victor: the reply to Anselmian Atonement Violence”; Thomas Finger, linked Mennonite Seminary: “Christus Victor as Nonviolent Atonement”; Hans Boersma, Regent collage, Vancouver, British Columbia: “Violence, the move, and Divine Intentionality: A transformed Reformed View”; and T.
