Shelves: theology
I really liked this book. Emphasizes Christ's work as inseparable from his person, and the logical unity of the ordo salutis noting distinctions among its components. Includes the historical development of various views and models, along with interesting discussions of union with Christ, the Kingdom of God, and the intent of the atonement. Very readable, concise language, carefully defining terms.

This isn't Letham's strongest work but it is a must read for anyone studying Christology. The focus throughout the book is on Atonement and Justification and how through the different offices Christ fulfills the mission of redemption.

Letham is a great communicator and this is another great example of his work.
