A Good Overview of Soteriology Jun 29, 2007
Having just finished this book,I can say that it is mainly focused upon Jesus as means of salvation, our 'human need' for such salvation and lastly God as overall image of Jesus' life in Judea and his message of repention that O'Collins is overly concentrating on. Whilst being somewhat brief in the historical arguments surrounding his storyline, O'Collins is fair to both sides of the various debates, choosing to portray one main thesis, (eg. St Augustine), against a critic and moving along with a peppering of Biblical quotes proving somewhat tedious as the book develops, (I suggest an appendix is needed). His inclusion of recent films like Mel Gibson's 'Passion' and New Zealands Peter Jackson interpretation of L.O.T.R.- to describe human sin, (the one ring analogy, p127) is very well linked into the whole explanation of humanity as fallen and in need of 'healing'. Apart from that, it is overall well worth investing in and adding to any Theological collection.
