Product Description

Foreword by Howard John Loewen

As our lives become complex with the demands of our affluent and accelerating society, do we hear the gospel's timeless and insistent call to live the "obedience of faith"? In these three "sermonic essays" Eldin Villafane takes on the task of awakening true obedience of faith through the themes of discipleship, incarnation, and justice.

Beginning with discipleship, Villafane draws on the "Christ hymn" of Philippians 2 to challenge Christians to choose the costly Christ-life. He then offers six contrarian perspectives on the incarnation from the early church as correctives to our current, culturally conditioned theological emphases. Finally, taking the book of Amos as a touchstone, Villafane issues a call for just leadership among the nations.

Adding interest and depth to this work are an insightful foreword by Dean Loewen and thoughtful responses by Richard Peace, Juan Francisco Martinez, and Veli-Mattm Karkkainen. Villafane's Beyond Cheap Grace incisively extends Christ's call to discipleship, incarnation, and justice to the church, the academy, and Christian leaders of all traditions.

Publisher's Description

As our lives become complex with the demands of our affluent and accelerating society, do we hear the gospel's timeless and insistent call to live the "obedience of faith"?

In these three "sermonic essays" Eldin Villafaqe takes on the task of awakening true obedience of faith through the triple themes of discipleship, incarnation, and justice. Beginning with discipleship, he draws on the "Christ hymn" of Philippians 2 to challenge Christians to choose the costly Christ-life. He then offers six contrarian perspectives on the incarnation from the early church as correctives to our current, culturally conditioned theological emphases.

Adding interest and depth to this work are an insightful foreword by Dean Loewen and responses to each essay by Richard Peace, Juan Francisco Martinez, and Veli-Matti Karkkainen.

Eldin Villafaqe has spent decades calling Christians to take seriously Christ's call to discipleship, incarnation, and justice. "Beyond Cheap Grace" not only renews that call but extends it to the church, the academy, and Christian leaders of all traditions.

    it is very real approach to abandon cheap grace and embrace the costly price Jesus paid for our salvation and to turn to a real biblical discipleship.
