His avowed universalism placed him in direct opposition to the Westminster orthodoxy of the Scottish Kirk, and his writing gave rise to a storm of controversy.

The first half of the book traces Erskines life (1788-1870), drawing upon his published works and voluminous correspondence. The second half of the book analyzes Erskines thought, paying special attention to this understanding of the doctrine of atonement. A final chapter examines the relation of his theology to that of Frederick Denison Maurice.
