Calvin and the Atonement
John Calvin had a profound understanding of the atoning work of Christ. His
writings are still one of the major sources scholars and others rely on to give
insight into what was accomplished by Jesus on the cross.In this book Robert
Peterson first examines what Calvin says regarding the love of God, the
Incarnation and Christ's offices of prophet, priest and king. He goes on to
consider Calvin's comments on other aspects of Christ's work: he is the second
Adam, the victor, the substitute, the sacrifice and the example.
