Item description for Jesus Ascended: The Meaning of Christ's Continuing Incarnation by Gerrit Dawson...
Overview Gerrit Scott Dawson, a Presbyterian minister, offers the church a fresh and vital presentation of the truth of the risen Christ's ascension to the bosom of the Father. "This clearly written, theologically astute book," writes Douglas Kelly in the foreword, "is marked by pastoral insight and a warm-hearted humility that will commend to all its potentially transforming truths." Dawson's accurate and careful survey of biblical teaching on the Lord's ascension is complemented by a look at the rich Patristic treatment of the ascension. In company with Calvin, Dawson sets forth the absolute necessity and sufficiency of the continuing priesthood of Jesus Christ in our flesh in the presence of the Father above. Jesus Ascended helps us think through and apply what Christ's continuing priesthood means for prayer, mission, the right way to deal with the world around us, and helping the poor. In Dawson's care, profound theological truth sparkles with loveliness and light.

A goosebump on every page! Jul 19, 2005
I bought the book as a reference for a class I was teaching. In addition to a wealth of information, as well as quotations from ancient and modern sources, I found eye-opening insights that changed forever my perception of Jesus' ascension. I can't recommend it more highly.
