Salvation (And How We Got It Wrong)

4.36  ·  Rating Details ·  25 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
What if everything you've been told about salvation is wrong? For nearly a thousand years Christians have been hearing and repeating a story about why Jesus died on the cross. It’s the only story of salvation most of them have ever heard. And it’s wrong. The Bible doesn't have that story and the early Christians never heard that story - they never believed it.

I remember as a kid being scared to death about the end of the world, as some said the Bible presented it.

Our view of the atonement influences how we see the character of God, and therefore influences every aspect of our lives and religion. In this book, Myers argues that the atonement theory known as penal substitutionary atonement, which has risen to be the most prominent or in some cases the only view of the atonement in Protestantism, is not supported by the church fathers or scripture, and unfairly makes God out to be a wrathful, pagan deity. Thus, it is crucial that all believers understand ...more

This is a light, but excellent read. It opens the door to show how what we've determined as the only Biblical view to salvation is not only irreconcilable to the Biblical text but to historical Christianity as well.

From Genesis to Revelation, God had a plan for his creation built on love for us.

If you're struggling with the thought of "why did Jesus have to die" or any of the many other reasonable thoughts that come to the surface when you think about atonement this little book is a great place for you to begin your study. An easy to read conversation between Kenneth Myers and a friend.

Get ready to have your preconceived notions blown away. Short, easy read but dense with thought provoking material. You can't just read it once!

Fantastic, quick read

The Pope of Sidehugs hits the nail on the head. Deep discussion in a conversational tone makes for a book that I will be recommending to my friends.
