    1. Both an engaging, inspiring read, and an incredibly frustrating read at the same time. Torrance tries to bring together a view of God's atoning work in Christ which embraces all the various models of atonement, and presents so much of the patristic, Old Testament, and New Testament, and reformation material well, and lops off the troublesome aspects of the various models (like the notions of propitiation as it was understood by pagan theology). But he does still hold a penal substitution aspect [...]


    2. Has some keen theological and biblical insights into the work of Christ - especially along the lines of redemptive history and how the Person relates to the work. Yet, Torrance's view of revelation ends up distorting many of his conclusions. Therefore:(1) Focuses too much on the Calvin and the Calvinists debates into his arguments.(2) Critical of any theory of atonement that lends itself as being foundational (read penal substitutionary atonement).(3) Thinks it biblically absurd that Jesus was " [...]


    3. Unbelievable stunning book. Solid theology, inspiring, and clear. I recommend this to anyone interested in studying a well-rounded take on the atonement. Paired with the first volume "Incarnation" this book has revolutionized my thinking on the person, life, and work of Christ.


    4. GREAT STUFF!!! See my notes from the accompanying volume _Incarnation_. Absolutely delightful reading nourishes the mind and the heart - very practical and down to earth a theology that comports with daily living.


    5. Theological reading, so slow going and requiring much thought. I read as I have time here and there and can focus on it.
