Richard Gaffin on the Centrality of Christ's Resurrection

"This does not imply that Paul compromises the absolute necessity and intrinsic efficacy of Christ's death (as an atonement). It does mean however that he does not confuse the ransom price, no matter how sublime and precious with what is secured by it's payment".

Richard B Gaffin Jr - "The Centrality of the Resurrection - A Study in Paul's Soteriology" - Baker Biblical Monograph, Grand Rapids, Michigan (1978) - (p116).
