Past Event and Present Salvation
The Christian Idea of Atonement
Paperback |256 pp |216 x 135 mm
How can our salvation in the present depend on an event in the past?
This question is the focus of Paul S. Fiddes' exploration of the traditional and modern images by which the Christian Church has tried to understand the idea of atonement through the cross of Christ.
Past Event and Present Salvation helps us to understand atonement as a creative act of God, enabling response, and thus transforming personality, overcoming evil and healing relationships.
