With clear writing---technical terms kept to a minimum---and a contemporary approach, emphasizing how each doctrine should be understood and applied by present-day Christians, Making Sense of Christ and the Spirit explores Jesus Christ as fully God and fully man in one person. Topics include The Person of Christ: including the virgin birth---uniting full deity and humanity in one person while enabling Christ's humanity to be without inherited sin---and the incarnation---the act of God the Son whereby he took himself a human nature; The Doctrine of the Atonement: the work Christ did in his life and death to earn our salvation; and Jesus' Resurrection and Ascension: affirming the goodness of God's original creation of man as a creature with a physical body that was 'very good', and his rightful place in glory and honor that had not been his before as the God-man. Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of Christ and the Spirit helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.
