Eleonore Stump

Oxford Studies in Analytic Theology

  • Offers a valuable contribution to contemporary work on the doctrine of the atonement
  • Argues for the claim that Christ's atonement disarms human resistance to God's love so that (s)he is willing to accept divine forgiveness and be united to God through Christ by the agency of the Holy Spirit
  • Proposes rethinking the doctrine and investigates whether there is an interpretation of the doctrine of Christ's atonement that is coherent, morally acceptable, and consistent both with other theological doctrines and with biblical texts relevant to the atonement
  • Features a Foreword by Andrew Pinsent of the University of Oxford
