Produktbeschreibung
Grace and salvation are probably the most important topics of Christian conversations, and all other doctrinal affirmations are sometimes reduced to serve supporting roles. They are ultimately inseparable; after all, salvation is by grace. Recent decades revealed an even deeper fascination on this tandem. Developments in biblical studies caused interest in reconstructing our long-held interpretations. The Reformation dictum ""justification by grace through faith"" is being evaluated in the light of a more holistic approach to the entire Bible. A call to return to the New Testament's Jewish roots guides theologians today to appropriate Hebrew thought and appreciate the continuity of salvation history from the time of creation. Insights about humanity created in the image of God, arguments about the vocation of humans as priests of creation, emphasis on the relationship between worship and mission, and zealous concerns for environmental care have also influenced the discussions about God's saving grace. All these themes are given attention here, although in varying degrees. This book is unashamedly biblical and Wesleyan in its approach. It presents the biblical narrative from creation to the final consummation, highlighting elements of grace and salvation as progressively revealed in the Bible.
