BUSHNELL, Horace


BUSHNELL, Horace
(1802-1876)
   American CONGREGATIONALIST MINISTER and theologian who argued in Christian Nature (1874), that CHRISTIAN CONVERSION is a result of education and not a sudden experience. He also declared in The Vicarious Sacrifice (1866), that the ATONEMENT was an illustration of the eternal principle of love rather than a satisfaction by which GOD was reconciled to mankind.
