What Did the Cross Achieve? The Logic of Penal Substitution, by, J. I Packer

This was a scholarly paper delivered at Tyndale House, Cambridge, on July 17th, 1973.  It has many scholarly footnotes, and is worth its weight in gold.  Combined with R. L. Darney’s work on the same topic, and with John Stott’s outstanding work on the Cross, we have a complete view of what our Lord did for us.  Click here for a pdf file of the paper.

    • Not sure what you meant by the comment, “Dabney?” This work you commented on regarding penal substitution is by James I. Packer, still living, who is a conservative Anglican, which is what I am. Robert L. Dabney, on the other hand, was a southern Presbyterian, who served under Stonewall in the War between the States, and taught in a seminary, wrote a theology, a biography of Jackson, and many other writings, such as

        Christ Our Penal Substitute

      , not the same as this writing by Packer.
