John Murray

Recommendation:   5/5

Description of author:   John Murray (1898-1975) taught systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia

Comments:  This is an excellent overview of the Biblical doctrine of the atonement.  The book is divided into two parts.  In part 1, Redemption Accomplished, Murray describes the atonement – its necessity, nature, perfection and extent.   In part 2, Redemption Applied, he describes how the provision of the atonement is applied to the people of God.  He explains effectual calling, regeneration, faith and repentance, justification, adoption, sanctification, perseverance, union with Christ, and glorification.  Murray’s style is readable and his content is Biblical.
