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.

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
Professor of New Testament and Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor,
Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas
