Jesus Christ Today Book Description :
Jesus' identity is not simply "out there" to be discovered scientifically. Jesus' identity is shaped historically in believers' experience with him.

Through the Year with Jesus Book Description :
Here is an entirely fresh and original book about Jesus, the Jesus of devotion, the Jesus within. Here are fifty pictures (or images) of Jesus, each being a chapter of the book. We need to get away from cliches and see what Jesus really means for people today. After a brief account of Jesus and his times, the author introduces the book and how to read it. Some of the pictures of Jesus are surprising- Jesus the drop out, the vagabond, the one who refuses power,the family therapist and the exorcist. Gruen has a rare gift of simple communication, of bringing Jesus alive to modern men and women. This was a gift which Henri Nouwen also had and the publishers are expecting to command similar sales. The style is simple and direct and psychologically in tune...

The Old Testament and the Significance of Jesus Book Description :
A perennial question throughout the history of the Christian faith has centered on the character of the Old Testament and its relationship to Jesus Christ. It is in this area that Christians and Jews have parted ways, creating a deep and enduring chasm between the two faith communities. With this new volume, Fredrick Holmgren aids in closing this hurtful breach by engaging with views on both sides of this important conversation. Holmgren dialogues with Christians from every point on the theological spectrum, urging the church to a new respect for the Jewish Bible, the enduring role of the Old Testament as "Christian scripture," and the valuable contributions of Judaism to the Christian faith. Warning the church against either caricaturing the Old Tes...
