Bonar Horatius – Rent Veil

Bonar Horatius – Rent Veil

Published in 1875, Rent Veil was written by  Scottish  theologian and poet Horatius Bonar. Bonar’s Rent Veil treats a  variety  of topics, most directly the atonement. The title refers to Christ and  Christ’s body. Bonar claims that without the broken (“rent”) body of  Christ, there would still be a barrier (“veil”) between persons and God.  With Christ’s death, there is the possibility of the forgiveness of  sins. In Bonar’s interesting treatment of the atonement, he also makes  some intriguing points regarding the relationship of the Old Testament  to the New Testament. Throughout, Bonar supports his points with liberal  quotations from Scripture. The final third of his book provides an  instructive call for believers. In it, Bonar extols believers to, and  describes for them, the kinds of people God desires–worshipers,  temples, priests, and kings. Despite being published over a hundred  years ago, Bonar’s prose is surprisingly up-to-date and easy to follow.  For an interesting treatment of the atonement, one can do no better than  Bonar’s Rent Veil.
