Vintage Jesus

vintagejesus.jpgOn Wednesday I read Mark Driscoll's and Gerry Breshears new book, Vintage Jesus. It gets my enthusiastic recommendation as a great introduction to Christology. Mark covers the central theological issues related to the person and work of Jesus with clarity and good persuasion. Much like Mark's preaching the style is casual, but also passionate and serious. This would be a very helpful read for younger generations who have not yet found the value and spiritual benefit of developing a robust theology. I look forward to more from Mark's pen. If you have read Vintage Jesus and would like to dig deeper, or focus on specific issues I would encourage you to read:

John Murray's Redemption Accomplished and Applied J. Oswald Sanders' Incomparable Christ And the new Pierced for Our Transgressions
