9780227174913: The Death of the Messiah and the Birth of the New Covenant: A (Not-So) New Model of the Atonement

In this groundbreaking book, Michael Gorman asks why there is no theory or model of the atonement called the “new-covenant” model, since this understanding of the atonement is likely the earliest in the Christian tradition, going back to Jesus himself. Gorman argues that most models of the atonement over-emphasize the penultimate purposes of Jesus’ death and the “mechanics” of the atonement, rather than its ultimate purpose: to create a transformed, Spirit-fi lled people of God. Th e New Testament’s various atonement metaphors are part of a remarkably coherent picture of Jesus’ death as that which brings about the new covenant (and thus the new community) promised by the prophets, which is also the covenant of peace. Gorman therefore proposes a new model of the atonement that is really not new at all―the new-covenant model. He argues that this is not merely an ancient model in need of rediscovery, but also a more comprehensive, integrated, participatory, communal, and missional model than any of the major models in the tradition. Life in this new covenant, Gorman argues, is a life of communal and individual participation in Jesus’ faithful, loving, peacemaking death. Written for both academics and church leaders, this book will challenge all who read it to re-think and re-articulate the meaning of Christ’s death for us.

About the Author:

Michael J Gorman holds the Raymond E. Brown Chair in Biblical Studies and Theology at St. Mary's Seminary & University in Baltimore. He is the author of 10 books, including the best-selling 'Reading Paul and Reading Revelation Responsibly', as well as 'Cruciformity: Paul's Narrative Spirituality of the Cross and Elements of Biblical Exegesis'.

Review:

The volume is well recommended and should provide a very helpful starter for many fruitful debates. (James D. G. Dunn Theology, 119.1 2016)

This is a highly readable and hugely significant book....that should stimulate conversation in classrooms and, hopefully in churches. (Stephen Finland Modern Believing, Vol. 57:1, January 2016)

...it is full of perceptive, helpful insights. (Peter Forster Church Times, May 27th, 2016)
