This text challenges the traditional, Anselmian understanding of atonement - along with the assumption that heavenly justice depends on Christ's passive, innocent submission to violent death at the hands of a cruel God. Weaver offers a nonviolent paradigm for understanding atonement, grounded in the New Testament.
