As well as authoring many influential academic books and articles. It is a challenging read - I often had to put the book down mid chapter to absorb Torrance's insights. On other occasions, I often had to re-read paragraphs as there was so much packed in that it went completely over my head. Torrance opens up aspects of Christ's death on the cross that I had never considered before.

T.F. Torrance is not for the faint of heart with his complex thought and scientific mind, but in every way everything he writes is worth the time. This book is no less the same. It has single-handedly grounded my perspective on the Atonement, along with my eschatological perspective, and Incarnational mindset. This book, along with the former volume on the Incarnation, have both dramatically shaped my thinking in regards to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend both volumes. These books are worth their weigh in gold. The editorial remarks are very helpful as well. These two volumes were heavy in theology, yet simultaneously devotional. The prose read so fluidly and fantastically that I felt at times overwhelmed with how magnificent it all was. It's almost like a mashup between poetry, and theology. Highly recommend, a must for anyone interested in the thought of Torrance, along with a well rounded, highly biblical perspective on the Incarnation and the Atonement. One of the most thought-provoking and influential books I've read.

I have not finished this yet but I am really enjoying the read. The Trinitarian perspective, that God is three distinct persons in One Godhead, Their unity of purpose, will, and love for humanity is so spot on. Our inclusion in God from before we were even born, from before the universe was created & that They will draw us into Their love is clearly expressed in this book. Gods character of being other centered, not self centered was & is a thought I could not comprehend until starting reading this book.

Excellent read to deeper understand Jesus and what He did on the Cross. I would recommend it and have to read.

This is the companion book to `Incarnation' and in a similar fashion its contents have been complied from the notes of the late Thomas Torrance, comprising of over 25 years of lectures given to students in Christology at New College Edinburgh.

As with the first volume, this is really a remarkable work. Torrance takes you on a journey through the theology of the atonement, examining it from every possible angle. As you read through this book you soon realize two things; Firstly, this is theology at the very highest level; scholarly, in-depth, and yet readable. Secondly, it is immensely pastoral. You can sense the passion and love that Torrance had for Jesus Christ. This is true theological reflection - not just for academic purposes, but also in order to elicit a change in our thinking and in our spiritual life. This is what has struck me reading these two books. I have not just `learned' information about the Incarnation and Atonement, but I have been challenged, encouraged and even moved by understanding deeper the immense work of Jesus Christ in his life and ministry; his death and resurrection. Is this not what theological study should lead to? Such is Torrance's skill in his prose that I found myself drawn into each chapter not just by what he wrote but also by how he wrote. I challenge any reader not to come away from this book enriched and rejoicing at what Jesus Christ achieved through the atonement.

Far be it for me to declare these books as future classics (that must be done by those with far more influence and weight than myself) - these are two of the very finest books I have ever read on Christology.
