The Atoning Death of Christ by John Joy offers a devastating critique of the Protestant theory of atonement known as penal substitution, as well as a concise explication of the teachings of St. Anselm and St. Thomas on the subject of Christ's death. With keen insight and patient erudition, Dr. Joy demonstrates that the vicarious satisfaction theory of St. Thomas provides the most satisfactory answer to the age-old question, "How does the death of Jesus procure our salvation?"
Dr. John Joy is the Dean of Faculty at St. Ambrose Academy in Madison, Wisconsin, where he also teaches theology. He also serves as President of the St. Albert the Great Center for Scholastic Studies and Managing Editor for the Aquinas Institute. His primary academic interests are the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, dogmatic theology, and especially questions of infallibility and the magisterium of the Church.
