Mike Bird on the Atonement

Mike Bird on the Atonement November 8, 2013

Yes, I am yet another ZonderFan of Mike Bird’s new Evangelical Theology. As I will say in a soon-coming review, I usually find systematic theologies a snore-fest, but I find Mike’s work very engaging, easy to read, and visually appealing (great charts and sidebars). Here is a nice quotable-bit on the atonement:

…the atonement is the climax of God’s project to put the world to right through the cross of Jesus. The atonement brings God’s people into God’s place under God’s reign to share in God’s holy, loving glory on account of the love demonstrated in the cross and the justice satisfied on the cross (p. 421).
