(0)

Unlike many other books available on the doctrine of Jesus Christ, this volume deals not only with Jesus’ deity, humanity, and saving work, but clearly contrasts those biblical truths with both academic and popular confusion about Jesus as found in American culture.

The United States is changing rapidly. Whether those cultural, demographic, political, and economic changes are for good or not, the reality is that we now live in a mission field—one that offers serious challenges and hopeful opportunities for the people of God in America. In Facing the Change, a missional church trilogy, Terry Coy explores those changes in detail and offers practical advice for living missionally as the people of God in an increasingly challenging environment. In Book One, Who Do People Say That I Am?, Dr. Coy tackles much of the confusion in America about Jesus Christ, offering a clear biblical alternative. Drawing upon both his academic background and his more than twenty years of experience in missions and church planting, he explains and then biblically challenges: • how Jesus has been redefined by world religions in America; • how human-centered spirituality and “religions” in America have made Jesus in our own image; • how American sects and cults have created a “pick and choose” cafeteria Jesus; and • how some American theologies have manipulated Jesus for our own comfort and needs. Unlike many other books available on the doctrine of Jesus Christ, this volume deals not only with Jesus’ deity, humanity, and saving work, but clearly contrasts those biblical truths with both academic and popular confusion about Jesus as found in American culture. The entire trilogy promises to be an intellectually challenging and practically encouraging tool for the missional church.
