Dr. Brad Nassif has posted part two of his interview with his friend and colleague, Scot McKnight. They discuss McKnight’s two books, A Community Called Atonement and Embracing Grace. The interview reminded me of one of the gems of Eastern Orthodoxy — their emphasis on the Ransom Theory of the Atonement. “Jesus became like us so we could become like him!” Man, I love that line.
One of the things that I like about McKnight, (and they mention this in the interview) is that he takes the wisdom of the Church Fathers and reintroduces them to the evangelical church in such a winsome way. By doing so, as an evangelical Protestant, McKnight is introducing evangelicalism to the beautiful theology of Orthodoxy.
