FOREWORD.

A STATEMENT of so essential a Christian doctrine as that of the Atonement, in the full range and compass of its significance, and defended from the negative views now seeking to invalidate it, is certainly a pressing need of the times. It is the earnest attempt, at least, of this volume, to meet this want in our theology and devotional literature.

“Jesus Christ, with his pierced bands, lifted the gates of empires from their hinges and changed the currents of history,”— Jean Paul Richter.
