Item description for The Compelling Faces of Jesus (Mercer Church Resources) by William Powell Tuck...

Jesus is the central figure in the Christian faith. Nevertheless, the Church has struggled to bring into clear focus their understanding of that phrase. The meaning of the phrase "the more than man," which the Church has declared about Jesus for two centuries has been difficult to understand and has been interpreted in varied ways by biblical scholars, theologians, philosophers, poets, artist, and ordinary persons. This volume is the author's reflection on his lifelong quest on the question of Christology. In seeking to discern who Jesus is, the author has explored the meaning of the Incarnation, Christ as a teacher, healer, and the rejected, crucified, and risen one. Finally he probes the meaning of the Christ as a present reality today and how he can still be known. The ink drawings by Israel Galindo invite the reader to probe in a visual manner the rich interpretation of the compelling faces of Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Compelling Faces of Jesus (Mercer Church Resources)?

Creative integration of biblical, theological and pastoral care concerns.  Sep 21, 2009
The Compelling Faces grew out of the pulpit ministry of one of the prominent preachers of our time and reflects his work as a professor of homiletics in two Baptist seminaries. Tuck insightfully brings together the concerns of pastoral care, theology and homiletics.
Preachers, professors and students will find this a helpful, reliable and creative resource. Chapters focus eight "faces" of Jesus combining biblical materials with impressive references to theologians like Barclay, Schweitzer, Weatherhead, Moltmann, and Pannenberg, and preacher-theologians like Marney and Killenger. A special feature of the book is the inclusion of ink sketches by Israel Galindo, a fellow professor with Tuck at the Baptist Seminary in Richmond.
Faces will be a valuable resource for seminarians, ministers and professors of homiletics as well as for those who teach religion in college or university. The reader will return to this book time and again to glean the rich insights of an influential minister whose message is as contemporary as the Gospel witness to which he pays tribute.
