"Jesus and the Undoing of Adam" is straight from the heart of St. Athanasius and the early Church. In this short but powerful book, Dr. Baxter Kruger takes us back behind the back of Augustine to rethink the work of Jesus Christ in the light of the blessed doctrine of the Trinity. Dr. Kruger sets forward a stunning vision of the Triune God and articulates a view of Christ's incarnation, life, death, resurrection and ascension that is rigorously consistent with the truth that the Triune God eternally purposed our adoption in Jesus Christ. C. BAXTER KRUGER is the Director of Perichoresis, an international ministry sharing the good news of our adoption in Christ with the world. He and his wife Beth have been married for 25 years and have four children. He earned his Doctor of Philosophy degree under Professor James B. Torrance in Aberdeen, Scotland. Baxter is the author of seven books, including "The Great Dance" and "Across All Worlds, " and teaches across the United States, Canada and Australia. He is an avid outdoorsman and holds two United States patents for his fishing lure designs. He is the founder and President of Mediator Lures.
Jesus Christ is not a theoretical idea or a mere concept far removed from our human experience. In Across All Worlds, Baxter Kruger brings us face to face with the fact that Jesus has established a very real and personal relationship with us in our darkness. Jesus accepts us and walks with us because he is determined that we come to know His Father with him and life in His embrace. "Baxter Kruger has seen something beautiful and he wants you to see it too. At the heart of the universe stands a set of relationships. Father, Son and Holy Spirit created you out of love to share in their love. Jesus has done everything to make this happen. Nothing is greater and nothing is better." -Ken Blue, author of "Healing Spiritual Abuse and The Authority to Heal" "Jesus Christ is not a doctrine, but a person who knows his Father . . . Across All Worlds takes this ancient truth and reality of 'Christ in us' and breaches Western cognitive dualism to help us engage our hearts and bodies in Jesus' relationship with us." -Bruce Wauchope, M.D., Adelaide, Australia "All that Dr. Kruger writes is rooted in the unswerving belief that the Father, Son and Spirit are not interested in some theoretically perfected humankind but rather cares deeply about each one of us here and now, in our flesh, in our daily world." -David Jennings, Attorney, Vancouver, B.C. "For those who are compelled to 'kick at the darkness 'till it bleeds daylight, ' Baxter Kruger's Across All Worlds is a steel toed boot." -?Steve Bell, Singer/Songwriter, Winnipeg, Manitoba" . . . A wrecking ball through the stained glass certainty of Religionland, and at the same time a balm to heal the sin-sick soul . . ." -Bert Gary, author of "Jesus Unplugged," Florence, Mississippi C.

The Gospel magazine and theological review Ser 5 Vol 3 no 1 July 1874
There is much discussion today about how we are to understand the life of Jesus in the Gospels. What was Jesus doing between his birth and death and how does this relate to salvation? This book corrects the Christian tendency to minimize the life of Jesus, explaining why the Gospels include much more than the Passion narratives. Brandon Crowe argues that Jesus is identified in the Gospels as the last Adam whose obedience recapitulates and overcomes the sin of the first Adam. Crowe shows that all four Gospels present Jesus's obedient life as having saving significance.
In Illuminating Jesus in the Middle Ages, editor Jane Beal and other contributing scholars analyse the reception history of Jesus in medieval cultures (6th–15th c.), considering a wide variety of Christological images and ideas and their influence.
In this important study Hays argues against the mainstream that any attempt to account for the nature and method of Paul's theological language must first reckon with the centrality of narrative elements in his thought. Through an in-depth investigation of Galatians 3:1-4:11, Hays shows that the framework of Paul's thought is neither a system of doctrines nor his personal religious experience but the "sacred story" of Jesus Christ.
A scientist and former evangelical argues that holding onto a belief in a literal, historical Adam has forced many Christians to reject science and become intellectually isolated from the modern world. Beginning in the seventeenth century, discoveries in anthropology, geology, paleontology, biblical studies, and linguistics cast doubt on the familiar account of the biblical Adam and his fall into sin, the central component in the West's understanding of its origins. Christians responded by creatively reconstructing the creation story, letting Adam “evolve” to accommodate his changing context. But further advances both in science and biblical studies eventually made it all but impossible to reconcile a first couple with a modern, scientific understanding of the past or with an informed reading of ancient biblical texts. Many Christians rejected the offensive scholarship, veering onto a path that would place them increasingly at odds with contemporary scholarship in many fields. In Saving the Original Sinner, Giberson tells the story of the evolution of the idea of Adam and explores how, over the centuries, we have created Adam in our own image to explain and justify our behavior. Giberson shows how the narrative of the Fall has influenced Western ideas about sexuality, gender, and race, and he argues that ongoing attempts to preserve the biblical story of creation in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary is contributing to the intellectual isolation of many Christians, particularly evangelicals—even as they continue to wield significant political power in the United States.
