Recommendation of exceptional book on the atonement

I sent the following to my pastoral staff in an email. I’ll share this recommendation more widely with whomever might happen upon this post.

I just finished the best theology book I’ve ever read. I read much more in biblical studies than I do in theology, but this book grabbed me from start to finish.

JOSHUA M. MCNALL, THE MOSAIC OF ATONEMENT

To summarize, McNall wants to stop arguing about models of the atonement and show how they work together (as a mosaic) to demonstrate what God did (and is doing) for us in Jesus. The arguments are compelling.

If I were a preacher or still able to teach others, I would find here a wealth of stuff to inform my teaching. Not only that, the thoughts in this book have helped me to love Jesus more. What more can you ask of a theology book?

I don’t often share my reading recommendations with my pastors, but this book is an exception, because it is exceptionally useful.

God bless. I pray for you guys every day.
