Redemption Accomplished and Applied
From the Editor. Beginning a new year always draws me to contemplating the tangible realities of an embodied life. While I am a fan and regular beneficiary of electronic media, I also seek to be alert to their liabilities. John Murray described union with Christ as covenantal, spiritual, vital, and mystical. In honor of the early creeds spawned by the Reformation, Ryan McGraw reviews a new English translation of a seminal treatise of Reformed Scholasticism from , Synopsis of a Purer Theology. The price of this academic publication will prevent most of us from owning this volume, but Ordained Servant readers should be aware of it. Ordained Servant exists to help encourage, inform, and equip church officers for faithful, effective, and God-glorifying ministry in the visible church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Perhaps no Biblical doctrine has been attacked with so many forms of subtlety as that of the atonement. Some subtle forms of error have been cleverly robed with Biblical phraseology and have deceived the unsuspecting. The offence of the Cross has been avoided by employing Biblical terminology with a sense that finds no parallel in Scripture. Such terms as sacrifice, propitiation, reconciliation, and redemption have been drained of well-defined Biblical signification and refilled with the thoughts and concepts of men. The motivation for this, as some claim, is to protect the love of God. Since the way by which God may be propitiated and reconciled is a matter of pure revelation, it is most important to allow the Scriptures to define its own terms. In a warm devotional manner and with a lucid style, Professor Murray brings to light the Biblical significance of the terms used to express the atonement.
