From Heaven He Came and Sought Her“We Are Far Too Easily Displeased” by Jon Bloom.

“3 Common Ways to Read Scripture” by Matt Smethurst.

A new, substantial book defending and articulating definite (or “limited”) atonement was just released by Crossway Publishers. The book, From Heaven He Came and Sought Her: Definite Atonement in Historical, Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspective, contains various articles by authors such as Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Letham, Alec Motyer, John Piper, Thomas Schreiner, Carl Trueman, Stephen Wellum, and Paul Williamson. About this book, D.A. Carson says,

Whatever side you hold in this debate, henceforth you dare not venture into the discussion without thoughtfully reading this book, which, mercifully, makes argument by stereotype and reductionism a great deal more difficult.

Monday, at The Gospel Coalition, Justin Taylor posted an interview with the books contributors (see here).
