The value of John Murray’s writing as a theologian has been increasingly recognised in recent years. Here we find the same strong theology, but distilled and expressed for Christian in general rather than for theological students in particular.
Murray deals with the nature and meaning of the death of Christ, and with the way in which the Christian inherits the blessings which flow from it, through regeneration, justification, adoption, sanctification and glorification. There is, he says, ‘an unbreakable chain of events proceeding from God’s eternal purpose in foreknowledge and predestination to the glorification of the people of God.’
'When it comes to issues regarding the death of Christ and its effect and extent, perhaps no - one sheds more helpful light than Prof. John Murray in his classic little paperback... Redemption Accomplished and Applied is not only a good read, it is a very usable and important reference for any who would reflect deeply on the plan of redemption.'
