At the core of Sheltons thesis is the claim that covenant relationship has to form the centre of our theological reflections on the cross. Moving through both Old and New Testaments, Shelton argues that all the diverse metaphors for atonement can be held together by the organizing notion of covenant relationship.Then, tracing the history of theologies of the cross from the second century through to the contemporary world, he sets forth a Trinitarian, relational and contemporary model of the atonement that parts company with penal substitutionary accounts.
