This volume draws together specially commissioned studies centered on Hebrews and the atonement. Presenting a range of differing perspectives, the volume is structured in two parts: historical trajectories and key themes within Hebrews.

The whole is a definitive collection of studies on the atonement in Hebrews that will be of service well beyond the confines of Hebrews' specialists, a collection as important for what it says about the atonement and the 21st century church as for what it says about Hebrews. It serves as a resource for further study of Hebrews and the theology of the atonement. At the same time it contributes to the renewing conversation between biblical and theological scholarship.
