The 21st century evangelical world has been sent reeling by the emergence of a heresy hitherto perceived to be the province of liberal scholars.  It is no less than the denial of Christ’s real, personal suffering under the wrath of God for the sins of his people upon the cross.  At Easter time particularly the true meaning of the cross needs to be affirmed ie. Substitutionary Atonement.  In the first part of this book the three authors from an evangelical Anglican background set out to make plain how definite the teaching of the Bible is upon this subject.  To lay the foundation some Old and New Testament passages are closely examined.  Then the theological framework is put in place, and the views of some major figures in the history of the church consulted.  The second part consists of ‘Answering the Critics’, thus making the book very helpful, though unashamedly controversial in the best sense.  A must have for pastors, elders and the concerned person in the pew.
