How does Jesus save us? What does it mean to fellow him? The answers to these questions offer hope, but also present a Christ who radically challenges the ways in which we understand the world and live our lives. Focusing on incarnation, ministry, cross and resurrection, this text links Jesus' saving work to contemporary social issues - including homosexuality, criminal justice and prisons, and war and violence.
In contrast to books about the "historical Jesus" that try to penetrate behind the New Testament, Placher presents what the New Testament and the great Christian theologians actually have said about Jesus. He presents Jesus the Savior and discusses Christ in chapters on incarnation, ministry, cross, and resurrection.
William C. Placher was Charles D. and Elizabeth S. LaFollette Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana. He was the author or editor of a number of books including "A History of Christian Theology", "Jesus the Savior", and "Essentials of Christian Theology", all published by WJK.
