    The kingdom of God and the atonement are two of the most important themes in all of Scripture. Tragically, theologians have often either set the two at odds or focused on one to the complete neglect of the other.

    In The Crucified King, Jeremy Treat demonstrates that Scripture presents a mutually enriching relationship between the kingdom and atonement that draws significantly from the story of Israel and culminates in the crucifixion of Christ the king. As Israel's messiah, he holds together the kingdom and the cross by bringing God's reign on earth through his atoning death. The kingdom is the ultimate goal of the cross, and the cross is the means by which the kingdom comes. Jesus' death is not the failure of his messianic ministry, nor simply the prelude to his royal glory, but is the apex of his kingdom mission. The cross is the throne from which he rules and establishes his kingdom.

    Using a holistic approach that brings together the insights of biblical and systematic theology, this book demonstrates not only that the kingdom and the cross are inseparable, but how they are integrated in Scripture and theology.

    "Truly Divine and Truly Human" traces the fascinating story of how Christians came to proclaim Jesus of Nazareth as both 'truly divine' and 'truly human.' It follows the centuries of debate--and the Church councils--that led up to this proclamation and the years of argument and schism that followed. This declaration has remained central to Christianity down the centuries and an appreciation of how it was made is crucial not only for an understanding of Christian history but also for an understanding of Christian identity today.
    Between 325 and 787 AD seven ecumenical councils took place in the early church. This book discusses what they had to say about Jesus Christ in the context of the developing Trinitarian theology of the time. Stephen Need examines the controversies that led up to the first seven ecumenical councils, the councils themselves, the decisions they made, the key theologians involved and the cities in which the councils were held. A final chapter looks at the contemporary significance of these councils and their positions for the church.
    Written for introductory students and non-specialists with photographs throughout the text, "Truly Divine and Truly Human" is a highly readable introduction to a complex and formative period of Christian history.

    Who is Jesus Christ? Today, we encounter diverse and conflicting messages about the historical Jesus from a variety of religious and secular sources. Some hold to Christ, being the Son of God, as the greatest personality of history. Others consider Jesus as a great teacher, philosopher or prophet. And, a small segment views Jesus of Nazareth as a mere legend or figure of first-century folklore. The overwhelming source of the information we possess about Jesus originates from the Bible, and the New Testament in particular. Author and researcher Cecil Price provides inquiring readers an opportunity to personally examine what the Bible presents about Jesus with a distinct focus on the Gospel accounts of the New Testament. The words of Christ along with the descriptions of many eyewitnesses convey in expressive detail the exceptional life of this remarkable personality. What sets Jesus Christ apart from all others? In The Unique One, you will discover how: - the Bible compares to other ancient documents - Jesus Christ differs from the founders of other major religions - both Old and New Testaments harmonize the identity of the Messiah - major teachings of the Christian faith compare to other religions - the words and works of Jesus can improve your life If you are open to investigating for yourself what the Gospels, and some other biblical accounts, reveal about Jesus Christ you will benefit from this book.

    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.

    For half a century Leander Keck thought, taught, and wrote about the New Testament. He first served as a Professor of New Testament at Vanderbilt Divinity School and Emory University's Candler School of Theology before becoming Dean and Professor of Biblical Theology at Yale Divinity School. Keck's lifelong work on Jesus and Paul was a catalyst for the emerging discussions of New Testament Christology and Pauline theology in the Society of Biblical Literature and the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas. Keck wrote a staggering number of now industry-standard articles on the New Testament. Here, they are all collected for the first time. In Why Christ Matters and Christ's First Theologian, readers will discover how Keck gave new answers to old questions even as he carefully reframed old answers into new questions. Keck's work is a treasure trove of historical, exegetical, and theological interpretation.
