Product description


"I've grappled with the subject of this book for years and read piles of books on it.

Sharon has crystallized the problems so clearly and proposed solutions so gently

and graciously that I know I'll be recommending it widely. Young Christians especially

should take advantage of this chance for Sharon to be their professor. She's a

consummate educator and a trustworthy guide."

--Brian D. McLaren, activist and author of A Generous Orthodoxy and A New

Kind of Christianity

I think Sharon Baker has succeeded in incorporating non-violent convictions into a plausible understanding of Jesus' work. She has addressed the concerns of ordinary people such as undergraduates more fully than any other author I'm aware of who has written about the atonement. The book is filled with wonderful illustrations and examples. Dr. Baker is the first writer I've read who has assessed the exemplarist view very differently than the revelatory view of the cross, and that is helpful to me.

--Fisher Humphries, professor of divinity emeritus, Beeson School of Divinity

About the Author

Sharon L. Baker is an associate professor of theology and religion and the author of Razing Hell: Rethinking Everything You've Been Taught about God's Wrath and Judgment, along with numerous articles on hell and non-violent atonement.
