1) Perspectives on the Extent of the Atonement: 3 Views
Carl Trueman, John Hammett and Grant Osborne present a point-counterpoint exchange about God’s true intention in sending Christ to die on the cross in Perspectives on the Extent of the Atonement: 3 Views. This is an excellent survey of the various views (Armenian, Reformed and Hypothetical Universalist). The debate is very informative and civil, without the sometimes ill-will that this topic will arouse.
2) The Cross of Christ
Preacher and Christian leader John Stott presents The Cross of Christ – an important book about the meaning of the cross. A classic and highly readable book, Stott puts forth a comprehensive look at the cross and the substitutionary atonement that it achieved. Truly a magnum opus on the topic and reality of the cross.
3) In My Place Condemned He Stood: Celebrating the Glory of the Atonement
J. I. Packer and Mark Dever unite to present In My Place Condemned He Stood: Celebrating the Glory of the Atonement. The essays contained in the book reaffirm the doctrine of substitutionary atonement and counter attacks against it. This book is timely, cogent and offers a relentless defense and presentation of the substitutionary and propitiatory death of Christ on the cross.
4) Redemption Accomplished and Applied
Redemption Accomplished and Applied, by the late John Murray – a Scottish-born Calvinist theologian who taught at Princeton Seminary – was originally published in 1955. This timeless book explains the two sides of redemption: its accomplishment through Christ’s atonement and its application to the lives of believers. A complex theological discussion is made understandable and practical for a layman in this book.
5) The Atonement: Its Meaning and Significance
The Atonement: Its Meaning and Significance is the late Australian New Testament scholar Leon Moore’s highly readable explanation of atonement for students, pastors and teachers. Even though it was written in the 1980s (drawing from research done in the 1950s) many of the book’s arguments are applicable to current debates about the nature of the atonement.
