At its beginning Christianity was surprising, powerful, creative, world-shaking. Today in the West it is many times familiar, common, and expected, losing its power to surprise and transform. We have developed societal amnesia and ignorance of what Christianity originally was - and what it still can be. We need to recover the surprise of Christianity. We need to ask the same fundamental questions as the early Christians, which will help us rediscover the surprising power of Christianity in our midst. Focusing on the surprise of the gospel message takes us into the heart of what it is to understand Christianity at all, and thus what it is to remember and relearn the life-giving power and witness that went with being Christian at the beginning. This remembering and relearning can, in turn, surprise us all over again and chart a course for our witness today.

C Kavin Rowe

C. Kavin Rowe (PhD. Duke University) is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School. Professor Rowes academic research focuses primarily on the New Testament, both in its historical particularity and in its relation to the later Christian theological tradition.
In addition to detailed exegetical studies on New Testament texts, he has published articles on topics ranging from the Imperial cult in the Graeco-Roman world to the doctrine of the Trinity. His first book, Early Narrative Christology: The Lord in the Gospel of Luke, deals with the narrative articulation of the identity of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke.


Dr. Rowe was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Heidelberg in 2002-2003 and Regional Scholar for the Society of Biblical Literature in 2006. He is a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
