The Forgotten Jesus and the Trinity You Never Knew
'This book embodies what the late John Stott demonstrated in his own teaching
ministry – deep thinking in order to produce simple teaching.'
– Graham McFarlane, BA Course Leader and Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology, London School of Theology. For full book review, click here.
'I am impressed with the broad scope of your writing and wish you every blessing from God in your ministry.'
– the late John Stott, private communication to the author.
'This chapter [final chapter] alone is worth fifteen quid [price of the whole book in English slang]!'
– Eddie Arthur, the Executive Director of Wycliffe Bible Translators UK. (See his http://www.kouya.net/?p=5049)
This book presents a dynamic picture of Jesus in his majestic Lordship and freedom, his humble servanthood and obedience, his compassion for needy humanity in his public ministry, his courageous entry into Jerusalem and his sacrificial love revealed in his death there, his resurrection from the dead and his universal reign.
This dynamic picture is related closely to Jesus’ fundamental and
underlying relationship with his Father through the Holy Spirit. The
concrete (not abstract nor metaphysical) expression of that Trinitarian relationship
in Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection is presented in a
unified manner, avoiding the pitfall of majoring on only one of these
aspects. The treatment is clear and understandable.
This holistic and dynamic picture of Jesus in intimate fellowship with his Father through the Spirit gives the readers a valuable glimpse into the mystery of the Trinity
and invites them to reflect on what it means to follow Jesus as
individuals and as communities in the context of the twenty-first
century with its many challenges.
Jesus Christ came with his cutting edge
message in the first century, bringing what was new and liberating in
the Kingdom of God.
In the twenty-first century, Jesus Christ continues to be the one who can exercise that cutting edge to truly transform individual lives and communities, bringing freedom, healings, peace and hope of the Kingdom of God to an aching and disillusioned world.
‘Jesus … the window for us to look into the Trinity …’ (p. 231)
