"James Denney is now best known, though in increasingly restricted circles, for The Death of Christ, considered for over a century a lucid and standard treatment of objective atonement understood in substitutionary terms. However, there is a breadth and depth to Denney's thought, a richness and passion in his theological work, and an attractive integrity and spiritual immediacy in his writing, that resists any reducing of his legacy to that of being an apologist for one aspect of Christian doctrine. This is the first major study of Denney to use the large corpus of Denney's unpublished theological papers and sermons held in New College Library, in the University of Edinburgh. These, together with Denney's published work, and wider biographical research, form the basis of this study, an intellectual and contextual biography of one of Scotland's most attractive and forceful theological personalities."
