Books on the historical Jesus abound in both the scholarly market and the popular press. Few of these recent studies, however, draw on the entire witness of Scripture and tradition when engaging the contemporary debate over the meaning and significance of Jesus of Nazareth. Bringing together both the pursuit of the historical Jesus and the systematic exposition of the Christ of faith, Hans Schwarz here presents a solid historical and biblical introduction to Christology that demonstrates the relevance of Jesus for today. After surveying the history of New Testament scholarship and exploring the biblical testimony itself, Schwarz restates important Christological themes in ways that connect them with present-day concerns. Schwarz includes in his discussion his own proposal for constructing a Christology "from below" that also takes seriously the resurrection. Clear and well organized, this volume is an excellent resource for discussing Christological themes within the context of today's historically oriented academy.

Christology In Context, the newest volume in Gabriel Fackre's long-standing Christian Story, relates the classical teaching about Christ to present-day issues that preachers, teachers, and believers face -- religious pluralism, evangelism, the place of angels, the problem of evil, and more. Drawing together reflections on Christology from throughout his life, Fackre moves from specific responses to church ministry and parishioners' questions, through evangelical and ecumenical perspectives, to concluding chapters on Christ's life, death, and resurrection. His Christology in Context solidly locates the incarnation and the atonement within the overarching biblical narrative in a way that will assist those who tell the story of Christ, whether from pulpit, study, or sidewalk.
Praise for previous volumes of The Christian Story -- A Pastoral Systematics
--The Christian Story should be a welcome relief to those who are weary of rationalistic theology. . . . The people who will welcome it are intuitive thinkers who up to now have not had a theology written for them.-
-- Robert Webber---Gabriel Fackre is a good theologian and an excellent storyteller at the same time. His narrative interpretation of basic Christian doctrine is a fascinating adventure in Christian doctrine and Christian life.-
-- Jurgen Moltmann---A penetrating and illuminating study . . . by a respected ecumenical theologian. While pioneering and innovative, this work nevertheless stands in unmistakable continuity with the basic insights of the Reformation and the apostolic tradition.-
-- Donald Bloesch-

The renowned scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author widely considered to be the heir to C. S. Lewis contemplates the central event at the heart of the Christian faith--Jesus' crucifixion--arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in transforming our understanding of its meaning.

In The Day the Revolution Began, N. T. Wright once again challenges commonly held Christian beliefs as he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope. Demonstrating the rigorous intellect and breathtaking knowledge that have long defined his work, Wright argues that Jesus' death on the cross was not only to absolve us of our sins; it was actually the beginning of a revolution commissioning the Christian faithful to a new vocation--a royal priesthood responsible for restoring and reconciling all of God's creation.

Wright argues that Jesus' crucifixion must be understood within the much larger story of God's purposes to bring heaven and earth together. The Day the Revolution Began offers a grand picture of Jesus' sacrifice and its full significance for the Christian faith, inspiring believers with a renewed sense of mission, purpose, and hope, and reminding them of the crucial role the Christian faith must play in protecting and shaping the future of the world.

The singular subject, theme, and message of the entire Bible, the Old Testament and the New, is the person, work and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. As in creation, providence and redemption, so in the Holy Scriptures, it is the purpose of God 'that in all things he might have the pre-eminence'. The Book is a book all about Christ. It is a 'him' Book. In this further work in Don Fortner's 'Discovering Christ' series, he turns to the last book of the Bible and shows how indeed it is 'the revelation of Jesus Christ'. Again the author's intent is not to provide a full exposition of the book, but to see Christ as the focus, not just of this book, but of all Scripture.

Doctrine in Development examines the doctrine of the imputation of Christ's active obedience with a focus on the thought of Johannes Piscator. Challenging earlier scholarship that regarded the doctrine as clearly present in the Reformers, Heber Campos shows how Piscator's exegetical and theological arguments generated responses that brought together several other doctrines to support the imputation of Christ's active obedience in a way that Reformed theologians had not previously done. Viewing Piscator's objections to the imputation of Christ's positive righteousness as a turning point in the Reformed understanding of active obedience, Campos highlights the process of doctrinal development regarding Christ's satisfaction.

In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Peter Orr attends to this somewhat neglected "sub-epoch" of biblical theology. He explores the New Testament witness to Jesus as he is now, the exalted Christ, through the lenses of his identity, his location, and his activity. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
