The author of this slender but profound volume is the professor of dogmatic- theology at Mansfield College, Oxford. Professor Micklem's avowed purpose is to open up to Christian believers new depths of meaning contained in the traditional Christian doctrine of redemption through the Cross. After three chapters devoted to an exposition of the doctrine of Atonement, the author deals briefly with the principles and insights developed by some of the great teachers of the church in connection with the doctrine of redemption. He sketches the contribution of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Roman Catholic Church (Augustine) and the Protestant Church (Bunyan and Luther) to Christian thought about redemption. While the author disclaims any thought of producing a scholarly treatise, this is scarcely a volume to be appreciated by those unversed in theology.
