Nakashima Brock on Atonement Theology
Here is a link to brilliant essay over at Two Friars and a Fool by a brilliant theologian (Rita Nakashima Brock). Ideas, including (especially!) theological ideas, have a profound effect on how we live. I recently taught a series where we looked at all of the major atonement theories and it really is remarkable how our understanding of the atonement reflects our understanding of God which, in turn, shapes our view of humankind and of how to interact with the world.
