'This book attempts to show something of the stature of Jesus Christ: to explain him but not to explain him away; to listen to his voice, not to drown it; to admire him, and to urge his uniqueness and his lordship upon a world so short of heroes and upon a Church which has put away childish things.' In The Glory of Christ Peter Lewis skilfully sets today's critical questions concerning Christ against the glorious backdrop of the goal of humanity and the sovereignty of God. With warmth and insight he considers what Christ claimed for himself and what the early church claimed about him. He also gives close biblical and practical attention to Christ's atonement, exaltation and Second Coming. This is a book of pastoral scholarship which will richly repay careful study by Christians the world over.

The Glory Of Christ In The New Testament

Author : L. D. Hurst
ISBN : 9780198263265

This volume consists of twenty-one studies on a subject of supreme importance, the New Testament understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ. All the main questions surrounding the earliest thinking about Jesus of Nazareth are addressed, including Canon, the use of the Old Testament, miracles, pre- existence, sacrifice, and the end of the age. The collection is dedicated to the memory of Professor George Caird of Oxford, whose life and work were devoted to laying aside the accumulated prejudices of the centuries and letting the Bible speak for itself. Professor Caird's many books represent the kind of deeply penetrating questions to be asked of the biblical writers if the Bible is to remain a relevant book for modern man. In the same tradition each contributor to The Glory of Christ in the New Testament has sought to raise new questions - questions whose answers will both advance current debate and stimulate discussion for many years to come.

Rethinking Retirement

John Piper challenges fellow baby boomers to forego the American dream of retirement and live out their golden years with a far greater purpose in mind. They say it's a person's reward for all those years of labor. "Turn in your time card and trade in your IRAs. Let travel plans and golf-course leisure lead the way." But is retirement really the ideal? Or is it a series of poor options that ignore a greater purpose-and will kill a person more quickly than old age? John Piper responds: "Lord, spare me this curse!" And his resounding message is for anyone who believes there's far more to the golden years than accumulating comforts. It's for readers who long to finish better than they started, persevere for the right reasons (and without fear), experience true security, value what lies beyond their cravings, and live dangerously for the One who gave his life in his prime. With this brief book, Piper is sure to spur fellow baby boomers in their resolve to invest themselves in the sacrifices of love-and to grow old with godly zeal.

The Message Of Mission

Mission is not an optional "extra" for those few volunteers who "like that sort of thing." The church is called to be God's agents and representatives, a community shaped by the cross and mandated to reproduce and grow so that Jesus Christ may be more and more glorified. This exposition of fifteen passages of Scripture observes mission from the underside, giving attention to the connections between mission and suffering and even martyrdom, and to the historical importance of the church's conducting mission out of weakness. All Christian mission has its fountainhead in the God revealed in Scripture, who sent his Son for us, sends his Spirit to us and summons all people to himself. In a unique East-West partnership, Howard Peskett and Vinoth Ramachandra explore the missional privilege and responsibility of the church: to testify by its words and deeds to Jesus Christ, God's unique Son, crucified, risen and ascended.

The Glory of Christ is a book designed to declare part of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is revealed in the Scripture and proposed as the central object of our faith, love, delight, and admiration. The knowledge of Christ and His glory, John Owen says, is to be preferred above all other wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Why is it to be preferred? Why should we become engaged in a study of the glory of Christ? The author answers the question well when he writes, "For if our future blessedness shall consist in being where He is and beholding His glory, what better preparation can there be for it than a constant previous contemplation of that glory as revealed in the gospel, that by a view of it we may be gradually transformed into the same glory?
