Over the centuries the church constructed a few metaphors, equivalent to penal substitution or the ransom concept, to discuss Christ's dying at the pass and the theological suggestion of the atonement. but too frequently, 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 examine the entire metaphors of atonement and ask whether or not they every one serve a bigger purpose.

A neighborhood known as Atonement is a positive theology that not just values the church's atonement metaphors but in addition 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 group 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, dwelling out its existence jointly because the tale of God's reconciliation. Scot McKnight therefore deals an available, thought-provoking theology of atonement that engages the worries of these within the rising church dialog and may be of curiosity to all these within the church and academy who're listening in.
