Series: Ordinary Theology
We know the bedrock themes upon which the Christian faith stands: creation, fall, redemption, restoration. As Christians, we live within these great moments of Gods plan for humanity and all of his creation. In other words, our lives are part of Christian theologyevery part of our lives, even surgery.
As a part of Zondervans Ordinary Theology series, The Scalpel and the Cross recounts New Testament professor Gene Greens encounter with open-heart surgery and carefully examines the many ways in which Christian doctrine spoke into the experience. The result is a short book that avoids shallow explanations and glib promises, instead guiding readers to deeper understanding and enduring hope in the face of one of modern lifes necessary traumas.
