We are excited about the newest volume of The Gospel Project – The Atonement Thread. In this study, we are following the thread of atonement from the garden of Eden all the way to the garden city at the end of the Bible. From the sacrifices of the Old Testament to the blood-washed robes of white in Revelation, we see the unfolding drama of God’s redemption.
In conjunction with The Atonement Thread study we are launching a series of blog posts that examine the atonement and the Christian life.

The atonement, as taught in the Bible, calls to mind the unfathomable love of God to send His Son to take away our sins. The atonement proclaims the amazing grace of God to cover over our sins with the precious and perfect blood sacrifice of the Lamb of God. It’s our hope that the significance of the cross of Christ will become clearer and all the more dazzling to you as you work through this study and follow these blog posts. Whether you realize it or not, the doctrine of the atonement has very practical implications for your day to day Christian life.
