The Christological formulas - God, Savior, Messiah, Lord, King, High Priest - often run the risk of obliterating Jesus' humanity. Joseph, Mary, Jesus, concentrating on the years of Jesus' childhood, sets into full relief his humanity. Jesus appears here "familiarly" as a child. Mary is presented in her relationship to the child Jesus and in her role as initiator of Jesus' piety. The themes of her Magnificat are developed in Jesus' preaching. Joseph is nearly forgotten in salvation history. Here he appears for what he was in the tradition of the time, the head of the Holy Family and the one responsible for the formation - including the religious formation - of his child.

Too many people want to classify Jesus as someone he wasn’t. Jesus was either the Son of God or a madman. There is, however, more evidence that he was the Son of God than there is evidence that anyone or anything exists on earth today. Jesus made it clear to everyone that accepting him as Savior and Lord was the only way to achieve God’s acceptance. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In his book Thinking about Jesus: God’s Attempt to Save Mankind, author John F. Holman provides evidence that encourages people to think about Jesus and what he did and said while he was on earth. With that knowledge in hand, individuals are in a position to either accept him as Savior and Lord or realize the consequences. God sent Jesus to show us the Way. Thinking about Jesus: God’s Attempt to Save Mankind shows us that path to God.

Much has been said about why Jesus died. This book focuses on why Jesus lived. God with Us: Encountering Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew shows that Jesus didn’t just come to be our teacher, a miracle work or prophet, or even just Israel’s savior and redeemer. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. Notable Scripture scholar Edward Sri leads readers on a faithful exploration of Jesus’s kingdom-building mission and how it revealed God presence, which remains with us today. Helpful discussion questions are provided for personal and group study. This newly expanded edition of the study originally titled The Mystery of the Kingdom: On the Gospel of Matthew is an outstanding introduction to the first gospel.

Jesus did not die to save us from God. He died because the Romans did not tolerate charismatic teachers who attracted a lively following. Jesus attracted that following through his personal compassion, his confrontational inclusivity, and his skill in using laughter as a nonviolent weapon of mass disruption. The Gospel authors picked up Jesus' witty techniques. They adeptly parodied the literary conventions of heroic biography, laying out "the kingdom of God" in a point-for-point contrast with the empire of Caesar Augustus. Most of this contrast was Jewish Prophetic Rant, Standard Edition: the God of the Jews had always demanded justice for workers, food for the hungry, care for those unable to earn a living, and an end to monopolizing natural resources for private and imperial profit. Jesus added a fourth and telling point: God is nonviolent. God smites no one. God's loving-kindness and compassionate presence embraces all of humanity equally. We are all the children of God. Then and now, that's a revolutionary claim. It portrays our obligation to the common good as a sacred obligation. It's owed to God. In cultural terms, that's the most potent variety of obligation. This is the cultural heritage at risk from fundamentalism, which portrays God as both crazy-violent and vindictive.

Renowned poet and novelist Jay Parini’s The Way of Jesus is a book for progressive Christians and spiritual seekers who struggle, as Parini does, with some of the basic questions about human existence: its limits and sadnesses, and its possibilities for awareness and understanding. Part guide to Christian living, part spiritual autobiography, The Way of Jesus is Jay Parini’s exploration of what Jesus really meant, his effort to put love first in our daily lives. Called “one of those writers who can do anything” by Stacy Schiff in the New York Times Book Review, Parini—a lifelong Christian who has at times wavered and questioned his beliefs—recounts his own efforts to follow Jesus’s example, examines the contours of Christian thinking, and describes the solace and structure one can find in the rhythms of the church calendar. Parini’s refreshingly undogmatic approach to Christian thinking incorporates teachings from other religions, as well as from poets and other writers who have helped Parini along his path to understanding.

First published in 1990, Jesus in the Tide of Time considers the historical Jesus and studies the ways in which he has subsequently been regarded by different people in different cultures. The book examines the political, social, economic and religious background to Jesus’ life. It also looks at what is known about Jesus as a historical personality, and considers the use of symbolic figures by the early Christians to represent him. It highlights the attitude towards the person of Jesus as an indicator of the culture of the particular period and place throughout history, and questions whether different cultures, periods and individuals manufacture Jesus in their own image. Jesus in the Tide of Time will appeal to those with an interest in the history of Christianity, religious history, and social history.

Many of us long to experience the fullness of God and his purpose for our lives. Not a whole lot of us ever do. The reason is that we have departed in some significant ways from the biblical view of Christian life and growth. The New Testament highlights the communal, missional, and eschatological aspects of our walk with God. We grow in our faith as individual Christians to the degree that we are (a) deeply rooted relationally in a local church community that is (b) passionately playing its part in God's grand story of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration, and (c) intently anticipating the summing of all things in Christ when Jesus returns. In recent decades, American evangelicals have traded away community, outreach, and the Bible's teaching about eternity future for the pursuit of individual religious experience in the here-and-now. Why We Need the Church to Become More Like Jesus traces this departure from biblical Christianity through recent decades of popular evangelical trends and reminds us that faith centered on community, mission, and the story line of Scripture remains the key to the spiritual formation of the individual Christian.

JESUS CHRIST will come soon (Revelation 1:7). He will return to bring an Eternal Kingdom of peace and righteousness for Himself and for His beloved disciples. Humankind, however, brought forth seven mighty World Empires: Proud Egypt, cruel Assyria, the "golden, silver and bronze" Empires of Babylonia, Persia and Greece (Book of Daniel) and, in recent times, the Empires of the Romans and the Arabs. They all made life difficult for believers, but could not overcome Israel and the confessing church. Now a last Empire, the eighth one, is just around the corner. The Bible predicts: One of the seven World Empires will rise again from the abyss of history and try to seize Zion (Jerusalem) and the absolute power. But which one will it be? Here comes the surprising answer to well-known scholars as Arnold Fruchtenbaum (The Footsteps of the Messiah) or Joel Richardson (The Islamic Antichrist; Mideast Beast; Mystery Babylon) - fresh from the land of the Reformation. Courageous writes for watchful contemporaries in Europe and America. He refutes today`s lightly accepted origin of the End Time evil and shows that neither Rome nor Mecca are the main source of grief and evil. The New End Time Exegesis (NEE) provides an unusually clear and, at the same time, brighter future perspective for the Christians of the West. Reader ́s Voices "The Revelation of John ... made easy." "Can 450 million believers be wrong?" "We Christians of the West are free again, free to do good - even though dark clouds are appearing on the horizon." "A book that was born in Bethlehem." Paperback Edition with eight maps of the Biblical World Empires complete with information on their spiritual character; history; geographical location and extension.
