Michael Green shines a light on salvation as it appears in Scripture and in our lives.
In this perennial classic of soteriology, Michael Green explores the deeply human longing for salvation. But what did salvation mean to Jewish and Gentile people at the time of Jesus? Green traces salvation through the Old Testament, first-century Greco-Roman sources, and the New Testament. What emerges is the conviction that salvation is not just a hope for the future, but an offer of redemptive grace for the here and now. In a culture increasingly rife with despair and anxiety, Green’s timeless work offers a message of hope in the good news of Jesus Christ.
“There are few ways in which the Church could better serve this generation than by recovery, a translation into modern idiom, and a bold proclamation of the wonderfully comprehensive message of salvation contained in the Scriptures.”
