About-

At some point in the Christian faith journey, most people ask the question, “Why did Jesus die?” The most common answer is, “For my sins.” But what if Jesus died because of the sin of humanity, not for individual sins? It seems weirdly illogical for a God who is love (1 John 4:8) to demand a blood sacrifice to cover sin. It is not what the Jewish sacrificial system supported either. I hope that this book will help us understand that God loves us and will not forsake us. Ever. Forgiveness is about love, not punishment.

Endorsements & Reviews-

‘’This accessible, deeply thoughtful, and pastoral book offers a balanced, hopeful, and healing theology of atonement that is grounded in ancient tradition and needed by the church today.’’

- Elaine A. Heath, President, Neighborhood Seminary
