An intellectual and contextual biography of the author of 'The Death of Christ'

James Denney is now best known for his The Death of Christ,
considered a standard treatment of objective atonement understood
in substitutionary terms. However there is a breadth and depth to
Denney's thought, a richness and passion in his theological work, an
attractive integrity and spiritual immediacy in his writing, that resists
any reducing of his legacy to that of being an apologist for one aspect of
Christian doctrine.

This is the first major study of Denney to use the large
corpus of Denney's unpublished theological papers and sermons held in
New College, Edinburgh. These, together with Denney's published work,
and wider biographical research, form the basis for this intellectual and
contextual biography of one of Scotland's most attractive and forceful
theological personalities.

James M. Gordon is Principal of the Scottish Baptist College, Paisley,
