    Unlimited Atonement

    Amyraldism and Reformed Theology

    Limited atonement is not the only Reformed model of atonement

    "Hypothetical universalism," or "unlimited atonement," states that Christ's death is sufficient for the guilt of all people yet is only effectively applied to those with faith. This tradition, typified by the French Reformer Moïse Amyraut, has continued among Anglicans and Baptists for over four centuries, yet has been underexplored in Reformed systematic theology.

    Unlimited Atonement fills a gap in resources on atonement theology that begin with the unlimited love of God. Editors Michael F. Bird and Scott Harrower draw on the specialties of each of the ten contributors, addressing themes such as:

    • the biblical and historical sources of the soteriological position known as Amyraldism
    • distinctive features of Anglican atonement theology
    • Introductions to every book of the Bible to help you approach the text
    • hypothetical universalism, election, and the Baptist theological tradition
    • other prominent advocates of unlimited atonement
    • the issues of systematic theology at stake
    • atonement theology in preaching


    Unlimited Atonement is the most comprehensive analysis of Amyraldism to date, providing a resource for theology and Bible students and teachers in an esoteric stream of Reformed theology. Bird and Harrower provide a starting point for anyone who wants to understand the sources and merits of Amyraldism.
