Web Reviews of Banner Books 2010 No. 2

Category Book Reviews
Date February 5, 2010

‘every minister of the gospel should read Smeaton’s two volumes on the atonement . . . an example of the marriage of the best exegetical theology and the warmth of genuine Christian piety.

‘If you want to get a better grasp of the biblical categories, terminology, and texts about the atonement, and if you want that survey to present the truth about Christ in such a way as to magnify him as the Saviour you need, you can do no better than to pick up and read the volumes of George Smeaton.’
(Martin Downes on The Apostles’ Doctrine of the Atonement and Christ’s Doctrine of the Atonement, recently reprinted.)
