Item Description...
Jesus Our Redeemer examines what it means when Christians call Jesus their 'Redeemer' or 'Saviour'. It tackles such questions as: How can redemptive events in the past (Christ's life, death, and resurrection) bring about saving effects in the present? Why do human beings need redemption, both individually and collectively? What images of God are implied by the saving action of God and by human needs? Gerald O'Collins SJ draws on the scriptures, Christian hymns and texts for worship, literature, the visual arts, and other sources. He examines four major models of how redemption through Christ has been thought to work: theories of deliverance, penal substitution, sacrifice, and transforming love. He concludes by considering the outworking of salvation in the life of the Church, the situation of non-Christians, and the final consummation of human life and the created world at the end of time.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
