Praise For The Extent of the Atonement: A Historical and Critical Review…
—Craig A. Evans, dean of the School of Christian Thought and John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
“The extent of the atonement is among the most controversial questions in Reformed theology. It is probably also the most confusing and misunderstood. . . . Enter David Allen’s monumental book, an absolute tour de force. The Extent of the Atonement leaves no stone unturned in tracing the history of the doctrine, critiques every view and proponent with penetrating insight, and is written with a persuasive cogency throughout. The book is an education in how to do theology responsibly and how to read the Bible faithfully. To top it off, Allen writes with the heart of a pastor and the wit and wisdom of a seasoned preacher. A must-read for anyone interested in the question of what the cross achieves.”
—Brian Rosner, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia
“The issue of limited atonement has proved a controversial matter for many years and one that is unlikely to disappear at any time in the near future. One of the reasons for this is that the question it seeks to answer is one which developed over time and has a number of subtle and sophisticated facets. . . . While David Allen and I disagree on the matter, this work is an irenic and learned contribution to the topic which carries the historical, and thus doctrinal, discussion forward in an extremely helpful way. I am thus happy to recommend this work of a friendly critic. It deserves wide readership and careful engagement.”
—Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Chair of Church History and professor of church history, Westminster Theological Seminary
