it was amazing

This is a contextual exegesis of biblical themes, with focus on Jesus teachings and the themes of the New Testament documents in their Jewish context of Torah and the Roman Empire in the age of the first Caesars. The authors reference historical and current Christian figures for perspective and example of implementation of the biblical vision.

Some of the key section and chapter titles give a picture of the practical detail these authors provide in their exegesis and application to real life today.
Section One Journey:
2 Taking the Bible Seriously
4 Stories of Creation

Section Two Reconciliation:
9 The Prophetic Jesus
12 Practicing Resurrection
13 Debunking the Rapture

Section Three Transformation
16 Social Justice - Realizing God's Vision
17 Incarnation - Divinely Human
18 Prayer, Intimacy with the Divine
19 Compassion - The Heart of Jesus' Ministry

This is a well-thought-through practical implementation format for the teachings of Jesus, which present the Rule of God as the liberating and rewarding life we are meant to have.
