Grew up in Michigan and have been living in Germany for the past twenty years.

Dropped out of the programming world and began studying theology several years ago.

Now a PhD Student of Theology at Evangelishce Theologische Facultiet. I still do some programming as a Webdesigner working primarily with PHP and open source CMS software.

comment What are the primary differences and implications of a propitiatory view of the atonement versus an expiatory view?
Can do. Maybe over the weekend.

As far as the wording goes you seem to understand that propitiation is about placating God's wrath and expiation is about covering (or removing) sin. You've also hinted at a few of the atonement theories that have been offered regarding this.

If you have access to Theology for the community of God by Stanley Grenz, he gives a nice summary of the historical views as well as the theological issues at stake (pg. 340ff.) I could give a brief summary if you want but I won't be able to get to it right away.
