Over the centuries the church constructed a few metaphors, reminiscent of penal substitution or the ransom thought, to talk about Christ's demise at the go and the theological thought of the atonement. but too usually, says Scot McKnight, Christians have held to the supremacy of 1 metaphor over opposed to the others, to their detriment. He argues as a substitute that to plumb the wealthy theological depths of the atonement, we needs to think of all of the metaphors of atonement and ask whether or not they each one serve a bigger purpose.

A group known as Atonement is a optimistic theology that not just values the church's atonement metaphors but additionally asserts that the atonement essentially shapes the lifetime of the Christian and of the church. that's, Christ identifies with people to name us right into a neighborhood that displays God's love (the church)--but that neighborhood then has the accountability to supply God's like to others via missional practices of justice and fellowship, residing out its lifestyles jointly because the tale of God's reconciliation. Scot McKnight hence deals an obtainable, thought-provoking theology of atonement that engages the troubles of these within the rising church dialog and should be of curiosity to all these within the church and academy who're listening in.
