By Martyn John Smit,David Hilborn
Through a reappropriation of the traditional Christus Victor version of atonement, with its dramatic illustration of God's battle with the devil, Smith proposes that Christian realizing of either God and salvation has to come back to its long-neglected previous which will flow ahead, either biblically and dynamically, into the future.
"In this well-researched research at the atonement, Martyn Smith refuses to draw back from the difficult theological questions. Neither is he afraid to take a arguable stance. Insisting that theology's activity is to permit the Scriptures to talk for themselves, Smith boldly claims that God usually engages in acts of violence in his redemption of the world. The result's a strong re-articulation and safeguard of the Christus Victor version of the atonement."
