The Word “Atonement”

by Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon

In this new video by Theoria , Fr. Pat explains why the word Atonement doesn’t appear much in Orthodox theology, and how we should be using it, and not using it.

  1. I’ve read Fr. Reardon’s chapter from his new book, “Reclaiming the Atonement,” about Anselm of Canterbury’s theory of satisfaction, and how this concept is (was) foreign to the Orthodox understanding of the divine reason behind the incarnation. Needless to say, it is an excellent book, and I can’t wait to buy it!
