Gabriel N. E. Fluhrer, Assistant Pastor at Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC, will address the theme of the book he edited: "Atonement".
As Presbyterian & Reformed Publishing describes this book:
The doctrine of atonement is under debate. Evangelical publishing houses are releasing books that purport to change our understanding of this central Christian doctrine; church leaders are asking for the emphasis to change away from Christ as sin-bearer to Christ as exemplar of God's love (as if they need to be mutually exclusive?). What have some of the churches' best-known theologians and pastors to say on the matter? Published in conjunction with the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, this is a collecting of outstanding presentations on the Atonement from recent PCRT [Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology] meetings, together they make a strong case for the Reformed view of Atonement, but this book doesn't just discuss points of theology; it also shows the implications of that theology and how to communicate it - brilliant!
