- Publisher
Luke Timothy Johnson is an outstanding biblical scholar but also a writer with a rare gift for writing profoundly yet simply for a wide general audience. In this new book, Johnson examines certain key themes in the New Testament as they apply directly to the Church today. The Gospel is the central content of the Christian revelation, the glad tidings of redemption. Just as Christ's own teaching is a Gospel, so Johnson's passionate concern in the pages of this new book is how this Gospel can be preached and lived out today.The book divides into three sections - Theology, Scriptural Reflections, and Jesus."One of my constant preoccupations," writes the author "is how to read the Scriptures for the life of the Church in a manner that is at once loving and critical, challenging yet charitable."This book of short accessible chapters, contains Johnson's thought in concentrated and fresh form.
