By Barry D. Smith
Smith works from the basis that, for a thought of the atonement to achieve success, no biblical facts should be passed over or distorted, and the generalized ideas used to understand the biblical facts needs to be simply visible as implicit within the information. From this vantage element, Smith advances a formula of the atonement that's top supported through the biblical textual content itself. the realization Smith reaches is that the biblical info helps either the penal-substitutionary model of the pride thought and the Christus victor idea of the atonement, each one of which could be considered as components of a extra inclusive conception of atonement found in the recent Testament.
