Most Christians don't quite know what to do with the first half of the Bible. Some are fascinated by the historical sweep of the Old Testament. Others are blessed by its poetry. Still others focus on its prophecies. But what are the heart and soul of the Old Testament? In From Creation to the Cross, Al Baylis is a guide who shares with us his love for, and profound understanding of, the Old Testament. He walks us through the Old Testament, pointing out along the way perspectives and insights that leave us with a new, personal understanding of these thirty-nine books -- and more importantly, of the God of the Old Testament, who lovingly prepared the way before sending his Son. As Bruce Wilkinson puts it in the Foreword, "I could almost picture (Baylis) as a seasoned rabbi surrounded by a huddle of eager listeners. He doesn't simply teach the Old Testament; it's as if he personally reminisces through it." From Creation to the Cross is one of those rare books that speaks to a wide range of readers, from high school students to homemakers to college professors. This revised and expanded edition of On the Way to Jesus makes this unique and highly readable approach to the first half of the Bible available once again. It is ideally suited for use in Bible study groups.

The Dialectic Of Knowing God In The Cross And The Creation

Author : Joseph Poggemeyer

The apostle to the Gentiles presents a dilemma when in 1Cor 1,21 he asserts that human beings did not know God and in Rom 1,21 that they did. Consistent truth emerges as both of these verses resonate with echoes from Eden and Calvary. Thus, both pericopes in the present study point to the cross as the place where human cognizance of the divine happens most profoundly. The former verse brings to the fore the need for a domain of faithful obedience as a foundation for the human divine relantionship...The word of the cross grasps Christians by the power of the Holy Spirit. Hence human knowledge of God the ultimate goal involving both the cross and the creation, springs from the very life of the Trinity. Joseph Poggemeyer, studies at the Gregorian University I for his licence and doctorate in biblical theology.

In this fresh creative approach to theology, Elizabeth Johnson asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation. In effect, how can we extend the core Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings? Immediately this question runs into a formidable obstacle: the idea that Jesus's death on the cross was required as atonement for human sin-- a theology laid out by the eleventh-century theologian St. Anselm. Constructing her argument (like Anselm) in the form of a dialogue, Johnson lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus, and the early Church for an understanding that emphasizes the love and mercy of God, showing how this approach can help us respond to a planet in peril.

In America, a country founded on biblical principles, the culture is no longer sure whether the Bible is true, or not. If it isn't, how do we explain what we see around us -- the death, disease, and destruction? The early chapters of the Book of Genesis present the creation account, but today, that view is seen as the simplistic dogma of Bible "literalists." So how do we understand the world as it is? This critical book discusses subjects that the larger Church world isn't answering: How much of the historical records of Genesis 1-11 is reliable? What does the subject of origins have to do with us today? Why was Noah's flood global and not local, or in some sense myth? How does the doctrine of creation relate to the gospel? Book jacket.

This book confronts humanity with God's ID (Intelligent Design) of the universe and the design of man, himself. The confirmation is the creation. The universe is the proof of the truth. The Bible is the revelatory declaration. Jesus Christ is the manifestation. Man cannot truthfully and successfully deny the overwhelming reality of God without plunging himself into a fantasy world of perplexing confusion and insanity. The graphics of law, art, religion and science are used to help man in the late date of the 21st Century to get beyond his irrational and infantile denial of God in the face of invincible evidence and infallible proof. Man's denial of God and rebellion against God is a vain self pride and irrational denial of the foundation of his own existence. In view of humanity's escalating lethal cultural crises, can the world afford the anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Bible and anti-truth spirits in a GPS laden globalized nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction world?

C. S. Lewis--On the Christ of a Religious Economy I, Creation and Sub-Creation opens with Lewis on creation, the fall into original sin, and the human condition before God and how such an understanding permeated all his work, post-conversion. For Lewis, Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is the agent of creation and its redeemer. This leads into Lewis's representation through sub-creation: explaining salvation history and the purpose of the creation and the creature through story (The Chronicles of Narnia, The Space Trilogy, Screwtape, etc.), but also the question of multiple incarnations, and the encounters he pens between Aslan-Christ and creatures. What does this tell us about the human predicament and our state after the fall? This volume forms the first part of the third book in a series of studies on the theology of C. S. Lewis titled C. S. Lewis: Revelation and the Christ. The books are written for academics and students, but also, crucially, for those people, ordinary Christians, without a theology degree who enjoy and gain sustenance from reading Lewis's work.
