5.0 out of 5 stars Biblically Solid, Fresh, and Timely - Highly Recommended, 17 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Where Wrath and Mercy Meet: Proclaiming the Atonement Today (Oak Hill College annual school of theology series) (Paperback)
In a context where the penal doctrine of the cross is constantly lampooned as out of date, and consistently misunderstood by its detractors, the faculty at Oak Hill Theological College have done us a great service by restating and defending it with such clarity, vigor, and thoroughness. I hope this book will be read with care by the "evangelical" scholars who have recently published attacks on the traditional evangelical understanding of the atonement, but also by those who hold to the doctrine but wish to be able to articulate (and preach) it more clearly and precisely. It is a shame that the Foreward by Bob Horn was not proof-read (God "punishes" sin - not "promotes" it!), and that a strangely comfortable, feminine-looking, and faceless, Jesus is portrayed in a crucifix on the front cover. These, however, are small points which I hope will not detract from the excellent content. Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant-But It Now!, 13 Aug 2001

This review is from: Where Wrath and Mercy Meet: Proclaiming the Atonement Today (Oak Hill College annual school of theology series) (Paperback)
There is no more important topic in Christian theology than the Atonement.Here is scholarly and fresh defense of penal substitution.The Authors argue that not only is penal substitution Biblical but also that it rational,moral, and at the heart of the gospel. The writers argue the case cogently.Peterson's 2 essays on the Bible presents a wealth of material as to the centrality.The exegesis is sound and persuasive.Ovey on sin argues that the depths of sin as de-creation can only be dealt with by penal substitution.The morality of penal substitution is catered for by believers's faith-union with Christ.Williams argues that the view that penal subsitution is "mechanistic" fails because it ignores how central personal and relational categories are.Weston's essay is full of good ideas on preaching the cross. Anyone interested in theology must buy it.
