What shape should the atonement take as a doctrine? Is penal substitutionary atonement an appropriate account of the doctrine? Derek and Matt are joined by not one, but two guests for a conversation about the doctrine of the atonement.
Adam Johnson is a professor at Biola University’s Torrey Honors Institute (Matt’s alma mater), and is the author of God’s Being in Reconciliation and The Atonement: A Guide for the Perplexed (forthcoming). He also gave this interesting lecture on angels and the atonement, for those who are interested.
During the show, we talked a little about this post by Pascal. See his follow-up as well. And if you’re looking for a post that’s way too long on the subject, check out this missive by Derek.
