Models Of Atonement

Here's an interesting article critique of some of the major Atonement Theories. Excerpt:

big words. The big word here is Atonement. How should we understand the
atoning work of Jesus Christ? In the theological brief that follows we will examine
six conceptual models or theories of atonement:
1. Jesus as the Teacher of True Knowledge
2. Jesus as Moral Example and Influence
3. Jesus as Victorious Champion
4. Jesus as Satisfaction
5. Jesus as the Happy Exchange
6. Jesus as the Final Scapegoat
