An excellent, brief introduction to limited atonement. It is the first place I have found a clear explanation of hypothetical universalism and the role it played in the Westminster debates, as well as separating it from Arminianism. Nothing here is really new, but it is clear and helpful. He is a calm writer, throwing light, but not too much heat. He encourages charity and does not overreach. He also cites numerous authors both older and more recent.

This book has many strengths, one of which is its brevity. For such a short book, it covers the ground well both exegetically and historically. This makes it a good introduction to the topic of 'limited atonement.'

Gatiss defends limited atonement as a biblical doctrine with beneficial pastoral applications. At the same time, he is charitable toward Christians who take a different view.

I'm grateful for his labors!

Approaches the issue differently than I would in some places, and spends a considerable amount of time on questions that I don't particularly care about (like the Anglican confessional perspective), but overall a pretty solid treatment.

Helpful introduction to the doctrine of limited atonement. This covers an overview of the text, the theological doctrine and a brief history surrounding it. It is a helpful introduction to the topic and its significance.
