Asking why Christianity is unattractive to so many people, this book contrasts a revolutionary Jesus who changed the world with a marginalized church that is being ignored by our culture. And it explores how churches can do a better job of representing Jesus to the world.
What's in a name?...In the case of Jesus Christ, rich insights, fresh perspectives, and pathways to intimacy. From "Good Shepherd" to "Lamb of God," Rubel Shelly explores the various names given to Christ in the Bible and reveals a Christ that will both surprise and challenge you. Shelly, a deeply respected scholar, uses his unique insight and fervent love for the Scriptures to develop a clear and unobstructed picture of Jesus through the biblical names that describe the One who invites the whole world to come to Him. What Shelly discovers and divulges is that these names and titles reveal the ultimate Savior, and the ultimate answer to your greatest struggles, fears, and failures.
It is a popular phrase seen on everything from bracelets to earrings; it is frequently said to those seeking advice -- "What would Jesus do?" But this oft-used expression leaves many seekers more confused than ever. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could observe the Savior -- firsthand -- as he encountered our modern culture? Wouldn't you like to know how Jesus would respond to today's troubling issues, such as poverty, wealth, sickness, the sexual revolution, and more? In the pages of What Would Jesus Do Today?, two devoted Bible scholars, Mike Cope and Rubel Shelly, lead us through some of our most confusing questions and moral dilemmas and help us learn how Christ would confront contemporary society.
