The Implications of Universal Revelation and Atonement

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the implications of the universal schemes of revelation and atonement on the acceptability of traditional Christological views. It discusses the requirements for universal revelation and atonement. According to Bishop William Temple, universal revelation requires Jesus Christ to be truly God and truly Man, while what seems to be necessary for universal atonement is that human experience, as conditioned by the sin of men, should become the personal experience of God the Son.
