This looks like a highly readable and academically responsible book defending the deity of Christ. It’s recommended by big-name evangelical New Testament scholars including Darrell Bock, Daniel Wallace, Craig Blomberg, and Tom Schreiner.
This FREE offer is only available for a limited-time (perhaps today only?).
One of the unique features of this book is that the authors summarize the evidence for Jesus’ deity using the acronym “HANDS”:
Honors (Jesus shares the honors that are due God)
Attributes (Jesus shares the attributes of God)
Names (Jesus shares the names of God)
Deeds (Jesus shares the deeds that God does)
Seat (Jesus shares the seat of God’s eternal throne)
What Christians have affirmed for nearly two millennia—that Jesus is God—is frequently and openly called into question today. It’s natural that those who reject the Bible also reject its exalted view of Christ. But surprisingly, many who embrace the authority of Scripture are quick to argue that Jesus’ deity is found nowhere in its pages.
Putting Jesus in His Place demonstrates that the New Testament—from beginning to end—clearly reveals Jesus’ divine identity. What’s more, it shows that belief in Jesus as God was the conviction of his original Jewish followers, rooted in Old Testament theology and in what Jesus himself said and did.
In a manner that is both academically sound and spiritually engaging, the authors make a case for the deity of Christ that is easy to follow and hard to forget.
