Christian Theologies of Salvation

This chapter examines the theology of Irenaeus of Lyons, an early church father who understood salvation in the gospel to be a recapitulation of all that God had done before Christ. For Irenaeus, salvation coincides with God’s creation as the perfect purpose and will of God, fulfilled in the perfect image of God in Christ.
