Product Description

The Deity of Jesus has been questioned by many theologians. In this volume Donald Macleod considers crucial evidence for the deity of Jesus. Macleod begins by examining three important descriptions from the New Testament itself 'God over all', 'Jesus is Lord' and 'The Son of Man'. Then he surveys the influence of Arianism, including the effect it had on the famous hymnwriter Isaac Watts and on the well-known author Philip Doddridge. He follows this with a chapter on the doctrine of the Incarnation in Scottish Theology where he responds to such theologians as Donald Baillie, James Denney and T. F. Torrance. The final two chapters consider the Christologies of Jurgen Moltmann and Wolfhart Pannenberg. Donald MacCleod is also the author of The Person of Christ, Behold Your God, The Spirit of Promise, Shared Life, and A Faith to Live By. This book is a paperback, has 201 pages, and is published by Mentor.

Publisher's Description

The Expository Times once contained a famous article by Vincent Taylor asking the question 'Does the New Testament call Jesus God?' Twenty years before Rudolf Bultmann said 'In describing Christ as God the New Testament still exercises great restraint.'

Taylor's conclusion was that the only clear statement of Jesus' deity was Thomas' words 'My Lord and my God.' In a later article in Expository Times Dr Michael Austin dismissed even this. His conclusion? 'The New Testament makes no unambiguous claim to Jesus' divinity.'

All this will come as a considerable surprise to ordinary readers of the New Testament!

Donald Macleod is recognised as one of the leading theologians alive. He is also able to explain complex thoughts with simplicity and clarity. This is his contribution to the debate on Christology. It builds on his previous writings about the Godhead and is a new work of international academic standing that is a rigorous theological defence of Christ's deity.

Author Bio

Donald Macleod retired as the Principal of the Free Church of Scotland College, Edinburgh in 2010. Regarded as one of Britain's most prominent theologians he has written extensively on a wide range of issues.

Editorial Reviews

"...an excellent example of how to respect yet disagree with one's elders in the theological community."
"both intellectually satisfying and spiritually enriching"
