The Centrality of the Atonement

“The doctrine of the atonement is put in its proper light, only when it is regarded as the central truth of Christianity, and the great theme of Scripture.  The principal object of Revelation was to unfold this unique method of reconciliation by which men, once estranged from God, might be restored to a right relation, and even to a better than their primeval standing.  But the doctrine is simply revealed, or, in other words, is taught us by authority alone.”

-George Smeaton, from his book Christ’s Doctrine of the Atonement, P.1
