Robin Collins Paper on the Atonement

Here's an earlier somewhat rough-draft essay from Robin Collins on the Atonement. I linked to Part II in an earlier post.

"I...argue that the Satisfaction and Penal theories of the Atonement are so unsatisfactory that we would be better off simply to accept the doctrine of the Atonement as a mystery than to accept one of them...After critiquing the traditional Western theories, therefore, I shall develop, in a philosophically careful and clear way, a much more adequate theory."
