From the Back Cover God So Loved The World begins with the stories, images, and practices of Jesus and how they portray God's love for the world. Then, against the backdrop of biblical teachings about the kingdom of God, the author examines what it means for Jesus to be fully human and fully divine. The final chapters draw out the implications of a well-developed, orthodox Christology for the church and for individual believers.

"Jonathan Wilson offers to disciples at all levels of maturity an enormous gift-genuine theology for the church's life! His Christology is profound enough to grow professionals and accessible enough to guide beginners. Its best outcome will be changed lives-including yours!"-Marva J. Dawn, adjunct professor of spiritual theology, Regent College

"A welcome and needed contribution to the life of the church today. Wilson has obviously saturated his thinking and devotional life in the Bible and the church's reflection on Scripture's wonderful narrative."-Christopher Hall, editor at large for Christianity Today

"Voices decrying the theological amnesia of the church are legion. Far more rare are those who seek to reintroduce the church again to its own faith. Wilson addresses this pressing need in a way both faithful to the great tradition and accessible to contemporary believers."-Joel B. Green, dean of the School of Theology Asbury Theological Seminary
