The Bible frequently describes the atonement using terms taken from commerce and lending. These word pictures highlight that human beings are trapped by the power of evil, owe a debt to God, and have been saved at a cost. This talk looks at how we can use the experience of kidnap, slavery, and indebtedness to share our faith in ways that resonate with our culture.
