The Atonement by John Murray
His treatment of the order of application of redemption is masterly… one of the greatest theological books written in the last hundred years. Here we find the same strong theology, but distilled and expressed for Christian in general rather than for theological students in particular. Murray deals with the nature and meaning of the death of Christ, and with the way in which the Christian inherits the blessings which flow from it, through regeneration, justification, adoption, sanctification and glorification.
