God So Loved the World covers the usual ground of contemporary evangelical and non-evangelical Christologies, but it does so in a unique way. Rather than simply discussing doctrine, Jonathan Wilson has incorporated stories, images, and practices from the New Testament that bring out the relevance of an orthodox Christology for the church and for individual believers. For Wilson, Christology is central to the gospel message.
With both his students and contemporary culture in mind, Wilson has developed a postmodern primer that creatively uses the images of Christ's work to invite "theological reflection that connects believing with living." As such, it is a "Christology for disciples," written in a jargon-free manner that effectively communicates to both an academic audience and thoughtful seekers.
The book's novel approach and accessible style make it ideal for professors, students, educated laypeople, and spiritual seekers who are looking for an orthodox approach to Christology that also seeks to understand more fully the relevance of Christ in our postmodern world.
Jonathan R. Wilson, Ph.D. in theology and ethics from Duke University is Pioneer McDonald Professor of Theology at Carey Theological College. Before joining the Carey faculty in 2006, he was Professor of Theology and Ethics at Acadia Divinity College (2003-2006) and Professor of Religious Studies at Westmont College (1989-2003). Among his books are Living Faithfully in a Fragmented World (Morehouse), God So Loved the World: A Christology for Disciples (Baker), A Primer for Christian Doctrine (Eerdmans), and Why Church Matters: Worship, Ministry, and Mission in Practice (Brazos). Jonathan's teaching invites followers of Jesus Christ to connect how we live with what we believe.
