Atonement Questions

The following seven articles attempt to answer certain important questions about the atonement, questions which, to some degree, have troubled many Christadelphians. I do not presume to think that I have fully answered any of the questions, but I only hope that something of what I have written may be useful. The articles contain numerous quotations from John Thomas and Robert Roberts, and other early and esteemed brethren.

I do not intend in this work to be argumentative or divisive, but to redirect attention to the beliefs of our community from the beginning.
