The Atonement, Violence and God.

 

Attached is an essay that discusses the problem of redemptive violence and proposes a way of looking at the atonement in a way that avoids the implication that the violence of the cross makes God appear vindictive.

My reflection on this issue is ongoing and the current version is dated 17/4/15. I welcome any comments to further advance this study.


I have removed the essay Christ the Saviour because it has been incorporated into my eBook of July 2018 which provides a more complete solution to the problem of violence and atonement. It my be downloaded from the 5icm Resource page and I will attach the PDF file here:
