9781932688856: Models of Atonement: Speaking about Salvation in a Scientific World

Models of Atonement breaks new ground in the science-theology dialogue, going beyond questions about the doctrine of creation to speak about God's work of new creation through Christ in a world described by science. The book builds on the author's earlier work that addressed questions about origins, divine action and scientific knowledge in the context of a theology of the cross. It discusses the concepts of original sin and the work of Christ which reconciles "all things" to God in ways that take seriously today's evolutionary and cosmic realities. By doing this it provides a useful resource for those called to proclaim and teach the Christian message in today's world.

Review:

George Murphy is doing is a responsible representation of scholarship in the field of theology and science. He addresses in a thorough fashion many of the important issues relating to a discussion of atonement in the context of theology and science, particularly evolutionary biology and cosmology. George is to be commended for addressing the issue of salvation and the formal message of the gospel in a readable and accessible fashion. --Ernest Simmons, Professor of Religion, Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota

George Murphy is one of the leading scholars working at the intersection of the Christian faith and modern science. Models of Atonement is an incredibly thoughtful and eminently readable attempt to rearticulate the doctrines of sin and salvation in light of evolution. Murphy has mastered both the science of human origins and the range of resources in the Christian theological tradition. Specialists and lay people alike can only benefit from this engaging and timely book. Daniel C. Harlow, Professor of Religion. Calvin College --Daniel C. Harlow, Professor of Religion.
