Summary

John McLeod Campbell (May 4, 1800 – February 27, 1872) was a nineteenth century Scottish minister and Reformed theologian. In the opinion of one German church historian, contemporaneous with Campbell, his theology was a highpoint of British theology during that century. James B. Torrance ranked him highly on the doctrine of the atonement, placing Campbell alongside Athanasius of Alexandria and Anselm of Canterbury.

James B. Torrance's introduction to The Nature of Atonement states that "...we look away from ourselves to what we are in the loving heart of the Father and what we are by the grace in the gift of Christ the Son, through the spirit of adoption." Torrance believes, "No Scottish theologian saw this more clearly than John McLeod Campbell, who ... throughout all his writings was so passionately concerned to call the Church back to the Triune God of grace...." Although the long sentences and difficult language can be a challenge to readers, experts agree that this book perceptively addresses the theological tension between judgment and atonement. This is an excellent read for those seeking insights into this topic of atonement. -KTV
