A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance

 

Adam Christology, the doctrine of imputation, and studies in the active obedience of Christ are generally considered Pauline territory – and they are indeed! But Brandon Crowe doesn’t want you to overlook the Gospels. Just what was the purpose of the life of Christ after all? Christ’s earthly life and ministry culminated, of course, in his death and resurrection. But his obedient life was essential, and Crowe demonstrates that the four Evangelists link our Lord’s obedient life to Adam.

This book is a genuine contribution to studies on the Gospels and the life of Christ and also to studies of the ever important doctrine of imputation. Highly recommended.
