Kettler, Christian D. The Vicarious Humanity of Christ and the Reality of Salvation. University Press of America, 1991; reprinted Eugene, Oregon: Wipf & Stock, 2010
In this book, the problem of the reality of salvation is addressed by T.F. Torrance's doctrine of "the vicarious humanity of Christ." Through this approach, salvation as humanization is affirmed, yet without the problems of anthropocentric theologies. This book is unique in that it offers both a survey of contemporary Christian thinking on salvation as well as a constructive alternative based on Torrance's doctrine, a significant yet neglected contribution to modern theology.
