Publisher's Description

Author Warren Carter addresses the ways in which New Testament writings present God by asking four questions about how God relates to others: How is God presented in relation to Israel? How is God presented in relation to Jesus and the Spirit? How is God presented in relation to believers/disciples/the church? How is God presented in relation to "the world"? Carter uses these questions to help draw out the most important factors in each of the New Testament writings discussed.

"Rarely does one exclaim, "This is a real page-turner!" when describing a book on the New Testament—but I must say it. With his characteristic concision and clarity, not to mention wit and conversational style, Carter leads us on a tour of "God-at-Work" in fifteen closely-read texts. What claims do the various texts make about God? What questions or "red flags" do these texts raise? What effect do or should these texts have upon us as readers today?
Carter intrepidly takes up some of the more challenging and cryptic NT texts and asks aloud many of the uncomfortable questions we’ve wondered about but might not have voiced so pointedly. He does not provide tidy answers, but his approach entices us not to give up, but rather to dive even deeper into the texts, their world, and ours. In reading this book, I was variously educated, entertained, challenged, and even moved." -Jaime Clark-Soles
