Reviews - What do customers think about Redemption (Truth and Christian Imagination Series)?
Beautiful Blending of Mind and Imagination Jan 20, 2007
Here is a book that is both theologically sound and highly readable. Both the experienced theologian and the novice reader will find help in clarifying the meaning of Christ's death and resurrection. His wise use of imagination makes the truth that he is expounding come alive. And the inclusion of fine art paintings and poetry make this a book that I will recommend to many of my friends and students. David E. Ross
