The Atonement - Gordon H. Clark
Healthcare for all, education for all, and welfare for all were preceded and made possible by the theology of salvation for all. Universalismwhether of the Roman Catholic or Arminian varietyperverted the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and made possible the modern welfare state. Biblical theology is inegalitarian, and the doctrine of the atonement is the heart of the Biblical message. In this book, Dr. Clark brings an unmatched clarity of thought and expression to a critical Christian doctrine, and his systematic explanation of the atonement of Christ for his people will richly reward the believing reader.
