Item description for God Under Our Skin: Christ and Covenant in the Christian Conversation (a Search for the Theological Jesus) by Charles D. Barrett...
The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. The God of Christians, as Pascal noted, is not the God of philosophers but the gritty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is finally and pivotally a God who embodies Himself in human flesh and bone--who in Jesus of Nazareth gets under our skin. In the belief that every generation of Christians has to deal anew with this Christ who is God's audacious and gracious intrusion into human time, and in the hope that seekers and people of faith may sense more vividly and effectively the ways he would come alive today, this book examines the ways Christ has come alive time after time in the minds, imaginations, and lives of earlier generations.
