Product Description

The goal of the Foundations of Christian Faith series is to enable readers to learn about theology in ways that are clear, enjoyable, and meaningful. Each volume examines the doctrines of the Christian faith and stimulates readers not only to think more deeply about their faith but also to lead them to understand their faith in relationship to contemporary challenges and questions. Individuals and study groups alike will find these guides invaluable in their search for depth and integrity in their Christian faith. In this brief and accessible volume, Leanne Van Dyk examines the person and work of Jesus Christ and discusses what the church teaches about Jesus. Van Dyk offers a clear explanation of salvation and presents theories of how we receive salvation though Jesus' death and resurrection. In addition, she explores the significance of salvation for how we as a Christian community live out our faith in Jesus Christ.

Publisher's Description

This book is a clear treatment, in nontechnical language, of the person and work of Jesus Christ, especially focusing on the nature of atonement. The chapters are arranged around several central questions: Who is Jesus? What do the Bible and the church tell us about him? Just what is in the nature of the salvation he offers, and how does it work? Most of all, what difference do the answers to these questions make for the church and for the world?

It examines the doctrines of the Christian faith and stimulates readers not only to think more deeply about their faith but also to understand their faith in relationship to contemporary challenges and questions.
