The Nonviolent Atonement

Regular price $28.00 $0.00

A provocative study that cuts to the very heart of Christian thought, The Nonviolent Atonement challenges the traditional Anselmian understanding of atonement—along with the assumption that heavenly justice depends on Christ's passive, innocent submission to violent death at the hands of a cruel God. Instead J. Denny Weaver offers a thoroughly nonviolent paradigm for understanding atonement, grounded in the New Testament and sensitive to the concerns of pacifist, black, feminist, and womanist theology.
