Learn more about atonement

In Introducing Bible Doctrine III: Humanity, Sin, and Salvation, Dr. Carl Sanders and Dr. Ronn Johnson discuss the theological importance of humanity’s creation in the image of God, separation from a relationship with God because of sin, biblical concepts of atonement and justification, and the ultimate destiny of believers.

Check out the Tyndale Commentaries

The Tyndale Commentary Series has long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world’s most distinguished evangelical scholars, each book offers clear, reliable, and relevant expositions.

Craig Blomberg says, “The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world.” The series is designed to help the reader understand what the Bible says and what it means. The introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural analysis, the commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes. Each volume also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
