'Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail the incarnate deity ... Jesus, our Emmanuel.' Great words, from one of the most popular Christmas carols -- but what do they actually mean and do they really matter? Melvin Tinker introduces the doctrine of the incarnation of God the Son in Jesus Christ, in two parts. Part One approaches the incarnation by way of an exposition of chapter 1 of the New Testament letter to the Hebrews. These grounds the doctrine in Scripture, working through some of the theological and pastoral implications. Part Two goes deeper, drawing on systematic and historical theology (especially the creeds) to tease out what the doctrine means and why it is vital to the life and health of the church and Christian devotion. While the treatment is clearly theological (dealing with biblical truth), it is also doxological (leading to praise) and pastoral (practical in its outworking) The doctrine is set alongside and related to two other key Christian beliefs - the Trinity and the atonement.

How could Jesus be both God and man? How can His death forgive my sins and give me eternal life? Where is Jesus now, and what is He doing?

A great rescue story thrills and excites us to the core, and there is no greater rescue story told than God's saving mankind through the unparalleled sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. It's a story of compassion, justice, and hope-and the central figure of Jesus.

We know Jesus as a great teacher, a man who performed miracles, and one who spread a message of love and peace. He is the Son of God, the greatest person to ever live. But what more do we really know about Him? He was a modest carpenter from Galilee who turned the world on its ear in three short years. What made people turn their hearts His way? And will yours be forever changed by an encounter with the Son of Man?

    Hedrick explores the tension, or collision, that occurs when one studies the Jesus of faith with the critical eye of historical scholarship. He outlines the nature of historical inquiry, gives a brief history of how scholars have understood Jesus, and identifies the essential issues confronting the reader of the New Testament Gospel accounts of Jesus: discrepancies, contradictions, and differences as well as strong similarities among different writers.

    "For many Christians, studying the historical Jesus disrupts and challenges their comfortable faith in the divine Christ of the creeds they have repeated all their lives. According to Hedrick, such conflict can 'bring new insights, a broader understanding, and a deeper appreciation for the complementary relationship between faith and history.' . . . In clear and precise prose, Hedrick asserts that the best way to understand the historical Jesus is to study the Gospels as 1st-century texts that present us with information about the life and death of Jesus. His book serves as an introduction to the central conflicts inherent in the contemporary study of Jesus."

    In our current time, the essential, life-changing question that Jesus asked of his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" has been effectively changed in the thinking of many to "Who would you like me to be?" From feminist theologians who critique Jesus through the experience of women to church growth experts who offer "God at your service", Jesus has been revisioned and reimaged to bless our most indulgent desires. In this clear and forthright book, six New Testament experts provide a credible antidote to the raft of inaccurate pictures of Jesus by reclaiming a place for traditional faith in our postmodern age.

    From the author of Discovering the Da Vinci Code, this new book is the result of a ten-year study that offers concrete evidence to reconcile the Jesus of history with the Christ of faith.

    IS JESUS WHO HE SAID HE WAS? Some say he was just a man; others claim he was the Son of God. Historian Darrell Bock tests the authenticity of Jesus' claims against the rules of history to find out if he truly is the Christ of Faith.

    This reader-friendly book examines twelve events, sayings, and teachings of Jesus, using ten well-accepted historical rules. Pull up a chair, engage in the conversation, and discover how fascinating the discussion of the historical Jesus can be.

    On the Incarnation , a new translation and introduction by John Behr, Preface by C.S. Lewis By any standard, this is a classic of Christian theology. Composed by St. Athanasius in the fourth century, it expounds with simplicity the theological vision defended at the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople: that the Son of God himself became "fully human, so that we might become god." Its influence on all Christian theology thereafter, East and West, ensures its place as one of the few "must read" books for all who want to know more about the Christian faith.

    Interest in the historical Jesus continues to occupy much of today's discussion of the Bible. The vexing question is how the Jesus presented in the Gospels relates to the Jesus that actually walked this earth.

    Studying the Historical Jesus
    is an introductory guide to how one might go about answering that question by doing historical inquiry into the material found in the Gospels. Darrell Bock introduces the sources of our knowledge about Jesus, both biblical and extra-biblical. He then surveys the history and culture of the world of Jesus. The final chapters introduce some of the methods used to study the Gospels, including historical, redaction, and narrative criticisms.

    Bock, a well respected author, provides an informed evangelical alternative to radical projects like the Jesus Seminar. His audience, however, is not limited only to evangelicals. This book, written for college and seminary courses, offers an informed scholarly approach that takes the Gospels seriously as a source of historical information.
