Excerpt from The Nature of the Atonement: And Its Relation to Remission of Sins and Eternal Life
The kindness and love of God our Saviour towards man - the grace of God which hath appeared bringing salvation to all men - has a twofold aspect; the one retrospective, referring to the evil from which that grace brings deliverance; the other prospective, refer ring to the good which it bestows. Of that evil men have the varied and sad experience, as they have also feelings that may be interpreted as longings after that good; but that experience is unintelligent and these longings are vague, and the grace which brings salva tion is itself the light which reveals both our need of salvation, and what the salvation is which we need; explaining to us the mystery of our dark experience, and directing our aimless longings to the unknown hope which was for us in God.

'A theology of the atonement should move one to worship and prayer. J. McLeod Campbell does exactly that. Much in harmony with the renewed interest in the Trinity, McLeod Campbell reawakens the doctrine of the atonement, the 'sleeping giant' of Christian doctrine, with its rich implications for spirituality and ministry.... The church today needs a new biblical paradigm of the atonement as is found in The Nature of the Atonement, which sees the atonement as the development of the incarnation of God and therefore as the manifestation of God as love.' - from Christian D. Kettler, Friends UniversityAbout the Author:
J. McLoed Campbell (1800–1872) is now recognized as one of the great Scottish theologians of the nineteenth century, primarily because of his book The Nature of the Atonement (1856). Living in an age and in a church that deposed him for heresy, Campbell was passionately concerned to share the good news of a God who revealed himself as a “Lover,” not simply as a “Lawgiver.” He was educated at Glasgow University and Divinity Hall. His other books include Reminiscences and Reflections.
