Publisher's Description

In Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to us using four royal titles--Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Names for the Messiah ponders each title and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfill the title, and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title.

Christians have claimed from the beginning that Jesus was the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament. In this study, best-selling author Walter Brueggemann tackles the questions: "What were these expectations?" and "Did Jesus fulfill them?"

    This review was written for Names for the Messiah: An Advent Study - eBook.
    The book is not hard to read, and you can understand it well. But it was very dry and it wad very slow. I felt like the author knew what they were trying to say but they kept writing until they found exactly what they wanted to say but they never really got there. They did use Scripture in the book which is important for anyone - very important. although I don't really see how it should be that way, but that is how the author intended it to be There are more names than four that the author used for my MESSIAH and that also was a disappointment as well. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
