Redemption Accomplished and Applied
A theological classic on the atonement
Originally published in 1955 and reprinted many times over the years, John Murray’s Redemption Accomplished and Applied systematically explains the two sides of redemption — its accomplishment through Christ’s atonement and its application to the lives of believers by the Holy Spirit. One of the most complete, personally enriching, and enduring studies of the atonement of Christ and its results ever written.
In Part I, Murray explains the necessity, nature, perfection, and extent of the atonement.
In Part II he carefully expounds the scriptural teaching about calling, regeneration, faith, repentance, justification, adoption, sanctification, perseverance, glorification – and especially, this is the masterful treatment of the subject of Union with Christ. The atonement lies at the very center of all Christian truth. This book recognizes that and explains it with an excellence very few have matched.
From the Foreword:
“The book you have in your hand is a miniature masterpiece of theology, dealing reverently on every page with matters of great theological significance. Whether you end the book by agreeing or disagreeing with its author, you will have found your own thinking on these issues sharpened and clarified.” — Carl Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary
