- Atonement in the Apocalypse -- This publisher page includes book and author information, with some brief reviews.
- Book Review: Christ Crucified: Understanding the Atonement, by Donald Macleod -- "those who raise the question of the cross as divine child abuse, or repudiate the idea of penal substitution need to engage with Macleod’s writing, and not the straw men representations of the doctrine of the atonement often cited in their arguments."
- Book Review: Defending Substitution: An Essay on Atonement in Paul -- "Defending Substitution is a compelling, rich, and lucid presentation of substitution in 1 Corinthians 15 and Romans 5."
- Book Review: “In My Place Condemned He Stood” -- "The doctrine of the penal substitutionary atonement is falling on hard times. Modern day theologians, pastors, and people in the pew view the idea of penal substitution as something completely horrific and foreign to the teachings of Scripture."
- Book Review: The Nature of the Atonement: Four Views -- "Looking over this list, one of the first things that comes to mind is that the selection of perspectives seems a bit random."
- J. Denny Weaver, The Nonviolent Atonement -- "He works from the assumption that Christology and atonement must reject violence, substitutionary or not."
- N. T. Wright Reconsiders the Meaning of Jesus’s Death -- "Bearing these caveats in mind, I found The Day the Revolution Began exhilarating and stimulating."
- Review: From Heaven He Came and Sought Her: Definite Atonement in Historical, Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspective -- "...the multiple chapters from a wide selection of biblical scholars, theologians, and pastors provide the strength of twenty-three witnesses, not just one."
- Review: The Cross of Christ -- "...this book by John Stott...is a combination of theological clarity and pastoral application that help one deeply root one’s understanding of the work of Christ on the cross not only in belief but in Christian devotion and practice."
- The Atonement of God: Building Your Theology on a Crucivision of God (book review) -- "Overall, this is a great book. If you are looking to study the atonement and its differing views, then I would highly recommend this book."
- The Final Word on the Extent of the Atonement? (Review of David Allen's book) -- "The first praiseworthy aspect of this work is the clarity of the introduction, which orients the reader to the many different questions that fall under the doctrine of the atonement."
- 10 Reasons You Should Read Fleming Rutledge’s ‘The Crucifixion’ -- "For all the disagreements I have with The Crucifixion on these and many other issues, Fleming Rutledge has richly explored the dimensions of Christ crucified."
