WHY DID CHRIST DIE on the cross? Throughout history one will find many different answers. The right answer is critical to salvation and entering into a right relationship with God through His one and only Son Jesus Christ. This current volume by Turretin is a masterful biblical survey and polemic that illuminates the Bible's doctrine of Christ's atonement. As the 1859 Preface states: "It is doubted whether any other work of the same compass presents so clearly and forcibly the truth of God as to the Nature, Truth, Perfection, Matter, and Extent of the Satisfaction made by the blessed Savior. The lucid arrangement of topics, compact argumentation, fairness of statement, and constant appeal to the law and the testimony, leave the careful reader little to desire." It had been said that Turretin is the best expounder of doctrine that the Reformed church has ever known, and this work on the atonement is an example of his exegetical, logical and practical insight into the work of our Lord's life and sacrifice.
