Leon Morris, one of this generation's most respected evangelical scholars, here offers a survey of the vast subject of atonement as it is presented in the New Testament. THE CROSS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT explores in turn Matthew and Mark, the Lukan writings, John, the Pauline epistles, Hebrews, the catholic epistles, and Revelation, showing what each New Testament scripture contributes to our understanding of atonement.

We must bear in mind that the writers of the New Testament books were not writing set theological pieces. What is the theology they express or imply? What is of permanent validity in them? We read these writings across a barrier of many centuries and from a standpoint of a very different culture. We make every effort to allow for this, but we never succeed perfectly.

Leon Lamb Morris (15 March 1914 - 24 July 2006) was an Australian New Testament scholar. Born in Lithgow, New South Wales, Morris was ordained to the Anglican ministry in 1938. He received his PhD at the University of Cambridge in England on the subject which became his first major book, The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross

This work is not a history of New Testament times, nor an account of New Testament religion. Nor does it proceed from a view that the New Testament was written as theology. We must bear in mind that the writers of the New Testament books were not writing set theological pieces. They were concerned with the needs of the churches for which they wrote. Those churches already had the Old Testament, but these new writings became in time the most significant part of the Scriptures of the believing community. As such, they should be studied in their own right, and these questions should be asked: What do these writings mean? What is the theology they express or imply? What is of permanent validity in them? We read these writings across a barrier of many centuries and from a standpoint of a very different culture. We make every effort to allow for this, but we never succeed perfectly. In this book I am trying hard to find out what the New Testament authors meant, and this not as an academic exercise, but as the necessary prelude to our understanding of what their writings mean for us today. -- From the Introduction

Leon Morris' New Testament Theology is relatively easy reading and heavily emphasizes scripture. He usually determines a writer’s emphasis of theological concepts through word counts and New Testament word usage percentages. Although interesting, since New Testament letters were occasional and written to particular audiences, this theory may not give correct answers all the time. In the larger sections of John and Luke-Acts, The Doctrine of God and Christ seemed repetitious with the commentary mostly centered on the names used of God and Christ.
This book is much easier to understand than his Apostolic Preaching of the Cross which includes lots of Greek words and requires knowledge of Greek. Interestingly, this book was not on the list of recommended New Testament Theology books at popular recommendation websites, probably because it is a bit simplistic, and unlike the very long, complicated and highly researched New Testament Theology textbooks which discuss esoteric theological concepts.
Morris' strength is his theology of the cross and salvation, and he shows that in this book’s discussions of salvation and atonement. While Morris spends a lot of time on theological concepts, by faith believers can apply many of these concepts practically to their lives. Morris points out the atonement and a person’s salvation, as a result of their belief in Jesus, should result in a victorious Christian life (throughout the text especially Romans 5:17, 6:2-22, Galatians 5:24, 1 Corinthians 15:57, Romans 8:37 (68, 69), and 2 Peter 1:3-4 (322, 323)). Every time Morris talked about this, excitement rose up in my spirit, and I realized once again that Jesus meant for Christians to have powerful, effective lives which bring about His Kingdom, for His glory. Through the cross, Jesus reconciled everyone who believes in Him to the Father, ransomed believers from spiritual death, and mediated a New Covenant. Through the cross, Jesus fulfilled the law, nailed sinful passions to the cross, defeated the enemy, and overcame the world. Because of the cross, believers have the fruit of the Spirit, have the power of God, reign in life, and are victorious! Thank you Lord!

This book takes words and phrases found in the New Testament and has a half page discussion about the theology associated with them. There are many footnotes where alternate views are referenced with their sources. The first quarter of the book uses words and phrases found uniformly throughout the New Testament. Then each book's words and phrases that are found more frequently in it than other books are listed and discussed. Also, theological concepts that are more frequently found in each book are discussed and cover a few pages each of this book.

My one and only complaint is the printing quality of this paperback version. the right (odd numbered pages) have high print quality. The left (even numbered pages) have font that is slightly bolded and has slightly ragged edges such as found in multiple generation photo copies. If this would bother you, buy the hardbound version which is now out of print and available used.

Excellent text on Christian Theology. Surveys both the Gospels and the letters of Paul for their message as laid out in each Gospel and all the letters. Very well documented.

I've read several of Leon Morris's books, and this one keeps up to his standard. This book while an overview still was very insightful and encouraging. I read through it as a sort of daily devotional, but will continue to use it as a general reference.

I read everything by Leon Morris. I'm probably going to name a kid after him. He's helped me tremendously. This book is no exception.

This is a very readable an enjoyable handbook on New Testament theology. I find that my college students are always positive about the book. That itself is a good endorsement.
Thanks!
