'My concern has been to deal honestly with human problems and needs as far as I understand them and at the same time to present as true an account as I can of the way in which men have discovered answers related to those needs through all that is implied in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whatever else may be in doubt about the New Testament, it is clear that the Word of the Cross is its very heart and nerve centre. My aim has been to establish lines of communication between that nerve centre and the alienation of mankind in our contemporary world.' In this classic study of atonement, now reissued, Dr Dillistone not only examines the biblical and theological material on atonement but also surveys a wide range of human experience, including other religions, literature and the arts.
