Church Times on the Word Alive issue

Atonement row gets personal as Evangelical partnership splits

Pat Ashworth writes: "At the heart of the controversy over Mr Chalke’s views was his rejection of one understanding of penal substitutionary atonement... "

Pete Broadbent seeks to bring clarification on the Spring Harvest position: "They’re trying to make it a big issue over Steve Chalke, which isn’t true. He’s one factor among many."

  1. It’s a very strange sounding situation. SO much so that I got in touch with Pete Broadbent and then UCCF and asked them both a few questions I had about it all. That didn’t completely clear everything up for me, so I just talked to someone at UCCF. He told me that there going to be a big Pow-Wow meeting about it all on Monday night (30th April), then there will be a press release. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in that meeting!!
