Faith and Philosophy 19 (3):275-290 (2002)
What is the relation between the perfection that Christians have in Christ, by dint of his substitutionary Atonement for sinners, and the virtues to which we are called as believers? How does the Atonement affect the moral life of Christians and how are we to understand our virtues in the light of what God has done for us in Christ? This paper identifies three interactions between the Atonement and our virtues: the generative aspect, the dual attitude aspect, and the pervasion of Atonement aspect. Each of these aspects suggests a proposal for how moral and spiritual nurture should be pursued in the church
