Perspectives on the Extent of the Atonement presents a point-counterpoint exchange concerning Godís intention in sending Christ to die on the cross. All three contributors recognize a substitutionary element in the atoning work of Christ, but disagree over the nature and objects of that substitution.
Carl Trueman (Westminster Theological Seminary) argues that Christís atoning work secured the redemption of his elect alone. While infinite in value, Christís death was intended for and applied strictly to those whom the Father had elected unconditionally in eternity past.
John Hammett (Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) argues that Christís atoning work had multiple intentions. Of these intentions two rise to the fore: (1) the intention to accomplish atonement for Godís elect and (2) the intention to provide atonement for all mankind.
Grant Osborne (Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) argues that Christís atoning work provided atonement generally for all mankind. The application of that atoning work is conditioned, however, on each personís willingness to receive it.
