In Search of a New ParadigmWho is God? Most of the gods that so-called unbelieversreject have never had any objective reality and are simplythe goblin constructions of their own minds. Likewise, the god before whom the sincere believerbows may be a caricature that does little justice to thereality one believes oneself to be worshiping. Error-whether for the believer or the unbeliever-always carriesunfortunate consequences. Jesus-the historical person-is the "stone of stumbling"that separates Christianity from all other religions, bothmonotheistic and polytheistic. That separation affectsevery aspect of Christian doctrine. But the paradigm forconstructing theology usually begins with philosophicalarguments for the existence of God and logical constructionsto determine God's nature. In Let's Start withJesus,author Dennis Kinlaw, a well-read biblical scholar,pursues a different mode for doing theology: he startshis theological work with looking at Jesus.ContentsCONTENTSAcknowledgments Preface 1.
