Item description for Beyond Cheap Grace: A Call to Radical Discipleship, Incarnation, and Justice by Eldin Villafane...

A summons to radical discipleship in our postmodern society.

Publishers Description
As our lives become complex with the demands of our affluent and accelerating society, do we hear the gospel's timeless and insistent call to live the "obedience of faith"?

In these three "sermonic essays" Eldin Villafaqe takes on the task of awakening true obedience of faith through the triple themes of discipleship, incarnation, and justice. Beginning with discipleship, he draws on the "Christ hymn" of Philippians 2 to challenge Christians to choose the costly Christ-life. He then offers six contrarian perspectives on the incarnation from the early church as correctives to our current, culturally conditioned theological emphases. Finally, taking the book of Amos as a touchstone, Villafaqe issues a call for just leadership among the nations. Adding interest and depth to this work are an insightful foreword by Dean Loewen and responses to each essay by Richard Peace, Juan Francisco Martinez, and Veli-Matti Karkkainen.

Eldin Villafaqe has spent decades calling Christians to take seriously Christ's call to discipleship, incarnation, and justice. "Beyond Cheap Grace" not only renews that call but extends it to the church, the academy, and Christian leaders of all traditions.
