A Forthcoming Defense of Penal Substitutionary Atonement

justin taylor lets us know that Steve Jeffrey, Mike Ovey, and Andrew Sach are about to release a new book called Pierced for Our Transgressions: Rediscovering the Glory of Penal Substitution that's entirely devoted to laying out the Penal Substitutionary Atonement theory that dominates evangelical soteriological thinking.

Of the book, JI Packer comments: "Responds to a plethora of current criticisms... with a thoroughness and effectiveness that is without parallel anywhere... I hail this treatise as an epoch-making tour de force."

John Frame comments, "It presents a cogent defense of the biblical and historic church doctrine, and in my view it devastates the criticisms of this position."

There is a whole site devoted to the book, scheduled to come out in March 2007, here.

This blogpost contains a link to Wikipedia, an open source online encyclopedia. Its articles can be edited by anyone at any time. For this reason, finding a link to a wikipedia article on emergesque indicates that at the time the link was added, I found that the article as it existed at that time was worthy of review or reference. However, because wikipedia articles are dynamic, care should be taken to verify information found in its articles.
