It’s endorsed by J. I. Packer, Carl Trueman, Mark D. Thompson, Alec Motyer, D. A. Carson, Julian Hardyman, Michael S. Horton, and David Instone-Brewer. Here’s what D. A. Carson says about it:
The last thing Lee Gatiss wants to accomplish by this short book is to renew theological conflict characterized by more heat than light. Rather, Gatiss makes his case patiently, respectfully, firmly—beginning with Scripture, traversing historical and systematic theology, and ending with pastoral reflections. Those who disagree will find themselves much better informed; those who are sympathetic to the argument and who understand the biblical and theological connections between definite atonement and penal substitution will rejoice to see the case freshly made. After all, it draws believers to the foot of the cross in humility and stunned awe before the Redeemer whose perfect obedience accomplished the wise and gracious plan of our Creator and Judge. While he works through the details of text and logic, Gatiss does not lose sight of the massive and central place of the cross in the panoramic biblical display of God’s redemptive purposes.
