The Man Christ Jesus: Theological Reflections on the Humanity of ChristISBN: 9781433513053
What does it mean for Jesus to be HUMAN?
Theologian Bruce Ware takes us back to the biblical text, where we meet a profoundly human Jesus who faced many of the same difficulties and limitations we experience today. Ware explores the significance of Christ’s humanity and helps us to learn, by the power of the Spirit, to follow in Jesus’s steps.
“This delightful study of Jesus Christ the man probes deep and complex truths with a lucid clarity designed for ordinary Christian readers. I’m tempted to say that this is Warfield’s christology re-written for the devout layperson who wants to understand Jesus better and thereby trust, obey, and love him more whole-heartedly. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter promise that the book will be used widely in churches where one of the passions is to understand historic Christian truth in a fashion that is biblically faithful and spiritually nourishing.” - D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“This is a simple, readable, accessible, and biblical introduction to the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ. It takes a great theologian with a pastor’s heart to boil down difficult big ideas like this.” - Mark Driscoll, Founding Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle Washington; Founder, Resurgence; Co-founder, Acts 29; author, Death by Love
“‘Marvel and wonder and worship.’ Bruce Ware rightly suggests that this is the appropriate response as we consider the implications of the humanity of Christ. My heart has been deeply stirred through reading this book and contemplating this oft-overlooked but vital aspect of our Savior.” - Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts
