About Atonement as Kingdom Reality
Throughout history theologians moved beyond the doctrine of the atonement to develop various theories of the atonement, seeking to explain why it happened in the way that it did, particularly in reference to Jesus’ death. This brief monograph argues that the atonement should be viewed within the context of the kingdom of God, suggesting that such a way of viewing the atonement is in keeping with the larger narrative of Scripture and offers the possibility of seeing, through multiple images, what God has done through Jesus Christ as the focal point of God’s redemptive intentions for the whole of creation.
