John McLeod Campbell's Doctrine of the Atonement


Leanne Van Dyk

John McLeod Campbell's doctrine of the atonement is a fascinating and important contribution to the long history of atonement theology. In response to the wide range of evaluation to Campbell's atonement theology, especially his unique concept of Christ's «perfect repentance,» this book proposes a new critical appraisal of Campbell's atonement theology. In addition to critical analysis, the book also makes several key conceptual links between John Calvin and John McLeod Campbell. This line of continuity is significant for Campbell's contribution to the tradition of Reformed theology.
