Over the centuries the church constructed a couple of metaphors, akin to penal substitution or the ransom idea, to discuss Christ's loss of life at the move and the theological thought of the atonement. but too frequently, says Scot McKnight, Christians have held to the supremacy of 1 metaphor over opposed to the others, to their detriment. He argues as an alternative that to plumb the wealthy theological depths of the atonement, we needs to contemplate all of the metaphors of atonement and ask whether or not they each one serve a bigger purpose.

A group referred to as Atonement is a optimistic theology that not just values the church's atonement metaphors but additionally asserts that the atonement essentially shapes the lifetime of the Christian and of the church. that's, Christ identifies with people to name us right into a group that displays God's love (the church)--but that group then has the accountability to supply God's like to others via missional practices of justice and fellowship, residing out its existence jointly because the tale of God's reconciliation. Scot McKnight therefore bargains an available, thought-provoking theology of atonement that engages the worries of these within the rising church dialog and should be of curiosity to all these within the church and academy who're listening in.
