165: The Most Incredible Catholic Case for Atonement (w/ Dr. Margaret Turek)

165: The Most Incredible Catholic Case for Atonement (w/ Dr. Margaret Turek) July 6, 2022

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by the incredible, world-renown theologian Dr. Margaret Turek to provide the Catholic case for the atonement.

And, boy, is it ever incredible!

Dr. Turek lays out in beautiful depth and poetry, the whole of salvation history. Why Jesus had to come, die, and rise from the dead. Why Jesus had to die the way He did. What was the Father’s role in “abandoning” Christ on the cross? And what do Catholics believe about it all.

This episode is, simply put, the very best case for how the Catholic Church understands atonement as you’ll ever find – I’m sure of it! If you have questions about what Catholics believe about the crucifixion, Easter, the Passion of Christ, Good Friday, satisfaction, justification, sanctification, or grace … this is the episode for you!

For more from Dr. Margaret Turek check out her book from Ignatius Press, Atonement: Soundings in Biblical, Trinitarian, and Spiritual Theology.
