About-

Christians strongly disagree about the extent of the atonement. Some believe that the atonement only extends to the elect, those whom God chose to save before the foundation of the world. Others believe the atonement is unlimited, that Jesus died for all people whether they ever believe in him or not. Despite the differences in these two traditional understandings they share one thing in common: both believe that Jesus died for a single, intended purpose. But what if God's intentions in the atonement are multiple, not single? The Bible teaches exactly this, that Jesus died both to pay for the sins of all people and to secure the salvation of those God chose to believe in him before time began. This book explains and defends a multi-intentioned view of the extent of the atonement, asserting that this view does the best job of understanding all of what the Bible says about the extent of the atonement, is more theologically comprehensive than the traditional views, and has the best potential for consensus on who exactly Jesus Christ died for when he was crucified for our sins.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This work by Gary Shultz is a much-needed contribution to a long-standing debate. . . . I have been greatly benefited and stimulated by this excellent work. I highly commend it."
--John Hammett, Professor of Systematic Theology, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, North Carolina

"Few issues fuel debate as much as the extent of the atonement. Gary Shultz boldly enters the discussion, surveying the theological landscape, raising key questions, and setting forth this well-researched, evenhanded, and thought-provoking proposal."
--Christopher W. Morgan, Dean, California Baptist University, California

"Few things are closer to the heart of the gospel than the extent of the atonement. What one believes about this crucial subject impacts preaching and evangelism in a significant way. This book by Gary Schultz is one of the most important contributions to the discussion I have read. It is biblical, eminently readable, and covers the important issues in a clear manner. Scholars, pastors, and laypeople alike will benefit from this fine work."
--David L. Allen, Dean, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas
