Product Description

From the Back Cover

Foreword by Howard John Loewen

As our lives become complex with the demands of our affluent and accelerating society, do we hear the gospel's timeless and insistent call to live the "obedience of faith"? In these three "sermonic essays" Eldin Villafane takes on the task of awakening true obedience of faith through the themes of discipleship, incarnation, and justice.

Beginning with discipleship, Villafane draws on the "Christ hymn" of Philippians 2 to challenge Christians to choose the costly Christ-life. He then offers six contrarian perspectives on the incarnation from the early church as correctives to our current, culturally conditioned theological emphases. Finally, taking the book of Amos as a touchstone, Villafane issues a call for just leadership among the nations.

Adding interest and depth to this work are an insightful foreword by Dean Loewen and thoughtful responses by Richard Peace, Juan Francisco Martinez, and Veli-Matti Karkkainen. Villafane's "Beyond Cheap Grace" incisively extends Christ's call to discipleship, incarnation, and justice to the church, the academy, and Christian leaders of all traditions.

About the Author

Eldin Villafane is the Ricardo Tanon Distinguished Professor of Hispanic Christianity, Ethics and Urban Ministry at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Massachusetts. His other books include Seek the Peace of the City, The Liberating Spirit and Transforming the City, all published by Eerdmans.

The clarity with which this book is written will show the reader the reasons for the lack of power and the derth we are
experiencing in the American churches. May God bring a great spiritual awakening to our nation.
