KIRKUS REVIEW

Under the rubric of Revelation, Redemption, and The Redeemer, the professor of New Testament of the Pacific School of Religion presents a re-statement of major themes in the Christian faith for the lay reader. The first topic deals with the Word of God as revelation, written record, incarnation, and proaching. The second is concerned with the human situation and the deliverance offered. The third presents Jesus Christ as example, teacher of truth, bearer of sins, and bringer of new life. The treatment is fairly conventional, and the author resorts to a practice to be noted widely today, of developing his ideas by quoting some other theologian who has said about the same thing, and of borrowing anecdotes from other narrators. Though intended for the ""ordinary reader"", the discussion will seem somewhat specialized for those unfamiliar with current Biblical and theological concepts and terminology.
