What is Leitharts take on penal substitutionary atonement? To what extent does he acknowledge/incorporate other views?

I have not read Leithart's book yet but found this summary interesting-

I suppose I should explain why I bought Leithart's book since I find his writings not my cup of tea-I primarily bought this book to read his exposition of Galatians 4 verse 9 "But now, after ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how ye turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?" I have read over the years many explanations of this text and was curious to read Leithart's understanding of Gal. 4:9.

I read books on the Atonement all the time or collect books on this theological subject-recently bought these two-
'From Heaven He Came: Definite Atonement in Historical, Biblical, Theological and Pastoral Perspective' Edited by David Gibson & Jonathan Gibson and 'The Day The Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus's Crucifixion' by N.T. Wright.
