Reclaiming the Atonement, Volume 1: The Incarnate Word
Volume 1: The Incarnate Word
In response to popular demand, Fr. Patrick Reardon presents the first of three volumes exploring redemption and salvation through the lens of Scripture, patristics, and liturgics, as well as through history, philosophy, language, literature, and psychology. He brings all these perspectives together to show how the whole of Christ’s work—from Incarnation to Ascension—accomplishes the “at-one-ment” of God with man.
This book should be required reading for all Evangelicals, like myself, who tend to gravitate uncritically toward sola scriptura. While paying close and reverent attention to every etymological and syntactical nuance in the original Greek and Latin of the Bible, Reardon is careful to inscribe his analysis of orthodox theology within the sacramental life of the Church, the writings of the Fathers, and the dynamic conversation between the Testaments and the faithful.

Father Patrick Henry Reardon offers an exegetical tour de force in this reconsideration of the atonement. It was a thorough and complete delight to ponder and ingest. I am confident it will find a delighted reception even beyond an Orthodox readership among all those who love and treasure the Sacred Scriptures.
