“My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name”
The doctrine of substitutionary atonement continues to undergo criticism and redefinition. Many are buying into a watered down interpretation of this doctrine, while others simply ignore this valuable doctrine and emphasise “user-friendly” doctrines. Is this even an important issue? Does there need to be entire books discussing the issue of the atonement? It is the argument of the authors of The Great Exchange that the doctrine of the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ is the centre of the gospel. Therefore, it is of paramount importance. This book was written back in 2007, but it continues to be an important and valuable book on this topic.
