The Remaining Desiderata and Final Reflection

(p.378) 11 Conclusion

Eleonore Stump

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the way in which the interpretation of the atonement argued for in this book, here baptized as ‘the Marian interpretation,’ fits with well-known biblical texts about the atonement of Christ, especially those texts that seem to privilege the Anselmian kind of interpretation. The most notable of such texts are those having to do with sacrifice, but there are other important texts as well. The chapter starts with texts about sacrifice. Then it considers more briefly some of the endlessly discussed passages in the Epistle to the Romans. It ends with a short consideration of one of the passages on the suffering servant in Isaiah. It concludes with reflections on the nature of love and the essential place of love in the doctrine of the atonement.

Keywords:   The Marian interpretation, Anselm, Richard Swinburne, sacrifice, the Epistle to the Romans, Calvin, Aquinas, the suffering servant, God’s love, atonement
