Luke Timothy Johnson is an outstanding Biblical scholar but also a writer with a rare gift of writing profoundly yet simply for a wide general audience. He is therefore a scholar in the mould of C. H. Dodd and William Barclay.In this new book, Johnson examines certain key themes in the New Testament as they apply directly to the Church today. The Gospel is the central content of the Christian revelation, the glad tidings of redemption. Just as Christ's own teaching is a gospel, so Johnson's passionate concern in the pages of this new book is how this gospel can be preached and lived out today.ContentsPt. 1 Theology of the Bible 1 Theology and the spiritual life 2 Suffering, sin and scripture 3 Wealth and property in the new testament 4 Sacrifice in the body language of love 5 Preaching the resurrection 6 Discerning God's word 7 Jesus and the little children 8 Scripture and discernment: the case of homosexuality 9 The biblical foundations of matrimony 10 Reconciliation in the new testament 11 The things that make for peacePt. 2 Scripture 12 Renewing Catholic biblical scholarship 13 The Holy Spirit in the new testament 14 John the Baptist: prophet of the great reversal 15 How saint Luke affirms the world 16 How Saint Luke challenges the world 17 The not-so-empty tomb (luke 24.1-11)Pt. 3 Jesus, the heart of the gospel 18 The search for (the wrong) Jesus 19 Knowing Jesus through the gospels 20 Learning Jesus in Liturgy 21 The eucharist and the identity of Jesus 22 How does Jesus save us?
