The Atonement of God: Building Your Theology on a Crucivision of God

No, Jesus did not die to purchase forgiveness from God or so that God could love you once again. God has always loved and always forgiven you for all your sins.

By reading this book, you will learn why Jesus died, and what His death means. In the process, you will learn to see God, Scripture, yourself, and humanity in a whole new light. Hopefully, you will also learn to live in a whole new way.

The book begins with a short explanation of the various views of the atonement, including an explanation and defense of the "Non-Violent View" of the atonement. This view argues that God did not need or demand the death of Jesus in order to forgive sins. In fact, God has never been angry with us at all, but has always loved and always forgiven.

Following this explanation of the atonement, J. D. Myers takes you on a journey through 10 areas of theology which are radically changed and transformed by the Non-Violent view of the atonement. 

The ten areas that you will understand in a whole new way are: 

1. The Life of Jesus Christ
2. God
3. Scripture
4. Sacrifice
5. Humanity
6. Sin
7. Forgiveness
8. Justice
9. Violence
10. Peace

Read this book, and let your life and theology look more and more like Jesus Christ!

About the author

This is one of the most important books I have written so far, but really, it is only an introduction to many of the themes which I imagine will consume most of my writing efforts for years to come.

The 10 areas of theology which I discuss in Part 2 of the book will find fuller explanation and defense in future books and podcasts. Read this book now to get a head start in those future conversations.
