The atonement has become a much-discussed topic among evangelicals, and InterVarsity has provided a resource to help church leaders evaluate various approaches. The Nature of the Atonement: Four Views, edited by James Beilby and Paul Eddy, surveys four theories of the atonement and contemporary proponents of those views: Christus Victor view (Gregory A. Boyd), kaleidoscopic view (Joel B. Green), healing view (Brice R. Reichenbach), and penal substitutionary view (Thomas R. Schreiner). The book is a useful opportunity to hear gifted theologians “state their case” and respond to other views.
