Comparative Study in the Theology of Atonement in Jonathan Edwards and John Mcleod Campbell Atonement and the Character of God
|Author: ||Jinkins, Michael|
This study examines the questions of the character of God and the atonement, intimately related in theological thought and the approach one takes to them. The consideration of these two doctrines arises from a careful and thorough analysis of the writings of John McLeod Campbell and Jonathan Edwards, each a seminal and representative figure.
". . . uses a comparison between Edwards and Campbell to an instructive, creative, and convincing end. . . . The result of this book is not only a further knowledge of two important and unique voices in the Reformed tradition but also a deepened appreciation of the connections and relations between the important doctrines of the Christian faith. . . . This is a book that will be of interest and benefit to anyone who takes seriously important, perennial issues in Christian theology." - Calvin Theological Journal
