The Forgotten Christ

Stephen Clark (Ed)

Paperback 2007-10-19

Publisher Description

This volume is edited by Stephen Clark and sub-titled Exploring the majesty and mystery of God incarnate

Few things are more essential to the health of the church than clear understanding of the Bible's teaching concerning the person of Jesus Christ. Doctrine informs devotion, and this, in turn, motivates discipleship. Neglect or misunderstanding of Christology will inevitably weaken Christian character and conduct.

Furthermore, the ascendancy of pluralism leads many to the view that there is nothing unique about Jesus, and the media regularly present distorted portraits of him. It is essential that the church is able to proclaim the authentic and incomparable Christ to a needy world.

This stimulating volume, based on the second Affinity Theological Study Conference, offers biblical and theological explorations of the majesty and mystery of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. All the contributors are fully committed to the belief that the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith.
