Product Description

Tim Perry offers a close reading of the Ascension moment and doctrine, reflecting on how the Ascension colors perceptions of who Jesus was and is, and challenged Christ's contemporary disciples. Far from an apologetic defense of the miracle, this innovative book challenges readers that - to understand the truth of Christ's Ascending into heaven - is to become a person who has prepared to do something remarkably similar.

Publisher's Description

Why do you stand looking up toward heaven? That's what the angels said to the baffled disciples who had just experienced the Ascension of Jesus Christ. Peter, James, John, and the others stood there, squinty into the sky, trying to make sense of it all. Tim and Aaron Perry confess to being baffled, too. For centuries, Christians have confessed "He ascended into heaven" in their creeds - but what do these words actually mean? The Perrys offer a probing look at this unfamiliar doctrine, and offer new insight into how the actual event can shape the life of a follower of Jesus. "Theologians have long made the bold claim that we need to work the Ascension into our theology. They claim, in fact, that without the Ascension our theology is weak. The cry of the Church has been 'Why?' and "Show me!' Theologians have yet to answer that pressing question and answer that claim. Until right now. In your hands is one of the only books written that makes the Ascension a part of the Christian life, and I hope you read and devour this insightful study and become and Ascensional follower of Jesus." - Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed and 40 Days Living the Jesus Creed
