GUSTAF AULEN PDF

Apr 14, Ryan Dufoe rated it really liked it I gave it a 4 as a classic within the history of the church and NOT as a free-standing work. I think much better anthologies of thought on atonement theory have been written, but the importance this book has in bringing the Christus Victor view back into the conversation is part of the reason why the other books are so good. I appreciated the read among my other readings in the field for what it was. Aug 04, Jacob Aitken added it Triumphing over the powers, July 15, This book provides an historically-faithful alternative to the substitutionary and exemplary models of the atonement.

The label Lundensian, which is not a perfect fit, points back to the origin of this theological mindset in the theology faculty at the University of Lund. There are two main features of the Lundensian theology movement. First was its attempt to mediate between conservative Lutheranism as found in the Swedish state churches on the one hand, and the high liberalism of the nineteenth century, which was such an irresistible force in European academy theology, on the other hand.

The first feature threatens to position the Lundensians as compromisers, mediating between liberal and conservative, between academy and church.

All self-consciously mediating theologies invite certain attendant miseries and mushinesses. There is a trope, even a cliche, of modern theological thought which goes like this: The early church in its classic period settled the issues of Trinity and Incarnation, but made no consensual statements about Atonement, recognizing instead a variety of biblical motifs on the subject.

As a result, there is no such thing as THE doctrine of the atonement, and the history of Christian doctrine has given rise to a variety of theologies of the atonement. The next step for this conventional approach is to set out a typology of different kinds of atonement theology. By now, there are so many typologies of atonement theology that I have even seen a a meta-typology, a typology of the typologies. Perhaps this is the unavoidable way that we must approach the doctrine though it often seems more like a failure of nerve.

One thing to notice is that whoever sets out a typology of atonement theologies is already making some important decisions about what counts. This typology is designed to push the subjective, moral influence view of the atonement out to the margin of Christian faith.

That enacts the first feature of the Lundensian theology, its protest against liberalism.
