Who Do You Say That I Am? Christology and the Church
Edited by Donald Armstrong
From The Publisher:
In our current time, the essential and life-changing question that Jesus asked of his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” has been, in the theology of many, effectively changed to “Who would you like me to be?” From radical feminist theologians who critique Jesus through their particular experience as women to church growth experts who offer “God at your service,” Jesus has been revisioned and reimaged to bless what we have become and to grant the fulfillment of our excessive desires.
The purpose of this book is to articulate and make accessible a credible antidote to this devastating and inaccurate picture of God. Written by six internationally recognized New Testament scholars and church leaders, these essays clearly and decisively reclaim the biblical view of Jesus and the church for our postmodern age.
Representing the best in contemporary reflection on the significance of Jesus and the church, this volume offers all readers—pastors, students, and laypersons alike—a deepened understanding of the cornerstones of Christian faith.
