Item description for Slave of Christ: A New Testament Metaphor for Total Devotion to Christ (New Studies in Biblical Theology, 8) by Murray J. Harris...

Overview
The New Testament finds many ways to depict Christians' relationships to their Lord. They are his disciples, sons, daughters, and friends. But it is perhaps too little recognized that they are also his slaves. This study sets out to uncover what it means to be a slave of Christ. Murray Harris begins by assessing the nature of actual slavery in the Greco-Roman world and the New Testament's attitude towards it. Drawing insights from this, he goes on to unfold the metaphor of slavery to Christ. Among the topics discussed are slavery and spiritual freedom, lordship, ownership, and privilege. Slave of Christ is a model of good biblical theology, providing insights both for further study of the Bible and for practical application. It will be appreciated in both church and academy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Slave of Christ: A New Testament Metaphor for Total Devotion to Christ (New Studies in Biblical Theology, 8)?

Comprehensive but a bit dry  Jul 25, 2006
I am an avid reader of Christian theological books, currently reading Larry W Hurtado's "Lord Jesus Christ" and enjoying it. This was the last book I read and I have to say that it's nothing if not comprehensive. There's an excellent overview of slavery in the Roman and Greek world in which Christianity appeared and grew and everything the author writes about is set firmly in its socio-historical context. The slave metaphor is a common one in early Christian writings and that's the reason I read this book. It not only gave me the background I was looking for around the use of this metaphor, but also expanded my knowledge around the early Church's take on slavery in its world. This is perhaps the most interesting aspect of the book and I was pleasantly surprised at its comprehensive treatment here. The author sure does cram a great deal into this book, so why only 3 stars? Well the writing is quite dry - and I am one for academic books, its the genre I read most - and that does spoil one's enjoyment of an otherwise excellent and scholarly work.
