Where introductions to the atonement typically favor one aspect of the work of Christ, or work with a set number of themes, aspects or theories, this book takes the opposite approach, developing the foundation for the multi-faceted nature of Christ's work within the being of God himself. It offers a grand unifying vision of Christ's manifold work. Specific elaborations of different theories of the atonement, biblical themes, and the work of different theologians find their place within this larger rubric.

He often punctuates his theological discussions with examples from art and culture more broadly. His theological commentary is erudite and familiar with primary sources. Three helpful bibliographies are included at the end of the volume. The book will work very well as an introduction to the atonement at both undergraduate as well as graduate levels. What I particularly appreciate about Johnson's work is his inclusive methodology: rather than looking at atonement theories as competitors, seeking the one definitive way of speaking about the reconciling work of God in Jesus Christ, he instead insists that we see them as complementary analyses of the manifold salvation we have been given.

Notify me. Description This is an introduction to the nature and goals of God-talk from a Christian perspective. The author start by addressing the question of what God-talk is and discuss the nature and aims of God-talk in terms of the worship of God by the church and the formation of saints within the church.
This discussion contrasts the doxological and formative nature of God-talk with the disintegration of God-talk from modern life using economic and medical practices as examples. Ryan S.
Peterson uses a variety of contexts in which God-talk occurs and the authors develop their thesis in conversation with major figures - Thomas Aquinas, Ludwig Wittgenstein, John Calvin, Karl Barth - who have shaped contemporary reflection on God-talk. The narrative also analyses various metaphorical and analogous expressions, the theological basis for theological translation understood in light of God's movement toward us in the incarnation; as well as discussing the biblical literature, liturgy and theology and their contributions to the church's speech about God.
