Salvation in Continuity deals with big questions––soteriology, intertwined with Christology––of utmost significance for understanding Matthew in its first-century Jewish setting. It argues that Matthew’s understanding of salvation in continuity is to be seen as his response to the historical and theological questions of post 70 c.e. Judaism. The study employs a sequential treatment of the Gospel, which enables it to avoid the danger which characterizes many previous studies of limiting the discussion of salvation in Matthew to certain texts, where the theme of salvation is more direct and explicit.

This book argues that the church for Augustine is a mystery that is both visible and invisible. Far from discarding the visible community, Augustine places greater emphasis on the empirical church as his thought develops. To demonstrate this, the author traces Augustine’s ecclesiology from early writings to later works. Further, this study explores Augustine’s exegesis of biblical images of the church, such as body of Christ, bride of Christ, city of God, and sacrifice, in order to show how the visible community is intrinsic to the mystery of the church.

The main contention of this book is that Kierkegaard’s apophaticism is an ethical-religious difficulty, concerning itself with the "whylessness" of existence. This is a theme that Kierkegaard inherits from the philosophical and theological traditions stemming from Meister Eckhart.

The book examines Kierkegaard’s apophaticism with reference to five themes: indirect communication, God, faith, hope, and love. Across these themes, the aim is to lend voice to "the unruly energy of the unsayable" and, in doing so, let Kierkegaard’s theological, spiritual, and philosophical provocation remain a living one for us today.

Kent Dobson climbed Mount Sinai in search of the God who had eluded him.

Instead he got bitten by a camel.

The senior pastor of one of the most prominent churches in America, Dobson was growing disillusioned with his faith.

One Sunday, he preached, "I don’t know what the word God means anymore." He left the church, but his quest for God became more intense than ever.

On the foundation of Jesus and the Bible, Dobson reconstructs a faith that is life-giving and true—true to himself and true to God.
