Product Description

Warren Carter's insightful God in the New Testament, part of the Core Biblical Studies series, presents both a descriptive and critical look at key "snapshots" depicting God-at-work in the New Testament, challenging readers to contend with the implications of these God-portraits for life in the world today. Rather than focusing on the interaction between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Carter focuses on how the New Testament writers understood God and humans to interact or, more specifically, how they constructed God to be active in the world and among human beings.

At the heart of this approach is the recognition that the New Testament writers are concerned more with God's activity rather than God's being, presenting constructions of God that are more functional than ontological. Rather than offering a single picture of God, Carter helps readers discover the power of engaging the sometimes competing images of God-at-work in the New Testament. This critical tension can lead to a more discerning understanding of what God is up to in the world today and how individuals and communities are called to live in light of God's good news in Jesus Christ.
