Overview

An important anthology that reaffirms the classic doctrine
of substitutionary atonement and
counters the ongoing
attacks against it.


If ever there was a time and a need for an enthusiastic
reaffirmation of the biblical doctrine of substitutionary
atonement, it is now. With this foundational tenet under widespread
attack, J. I. Packer and Mark Dever's anthology plays an important
role, issuing a clarion call to readers to stand firm in the
truth.


In My Place Condemned He Stood combines three classic
articles by Packer-"The Heart of the Gospel"; his Tyndale Biblical
Theology Lecture, "What Did the Cross Achieve"; and his
introductory essay to John Owen's The Death of Death in the
Death of Christ
-with Dever's recent article, "Nothing but the
Blood." It also features a foreword by the four principals of
Together for the Gospel: Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J. Mahaney, and Al
Mohler. Thoughtful readers looking for a compact classic on this
increasingly controversial doctrine need look no farther than this
penetrating volume.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"Here is vintage J. I. Packer accompanied by some younger friends. The magisterial but too-little-known essay 'What Did the Cross Achieve?' is itself worth the price of the whole book. And there is much more besides. Here, then, are gospel riches, and In My Place Condemned He Stood marks the spot where the buried treasure lies. Start digging!"
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas

"The essays in this volume by Packer and Dever are some of the most important things I have ever read. If you want to preach in such a way that results in real conversions and changed lives, you should master the approach to the cross laid out in this book."
Timothy J. Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; best-selling author, The Reason for God

"This book contains some of the finest essays that have ever been written on the death of Christ."
David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Every student and pastor should own this volume, for the contents are so precious that they deserve more than one reading."
Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean of the School of Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Writing with the precision of learned theologians and the passion of forgiven sinners, J. I. Packer and Mark Dever explain the meaning of atonement, substitution, and propitiation-not just as words, but as saving benefits we can only receive from a crucified Savior."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College
