Notes: Reprint of the 2nd ed. with McLeod Campbell's introduction published in 1867, entitled Nature of the atonement and its relation to remission of sins and eternal life.
"This present book is ... more of a reprint than a new edition, apart from the new introduction by ... James Torrance and the indices. The only change I have made to the text, apart from minor grammatical updating, is to break up some of the dense paragraphs to make them more readable. The footnotes in chapters 3 and 4 are from research by Michael Jinkins of Austin Presbyterian Seminary in Texas, and David Wright. Jock Stein."--Page x.
