Militant Grace: The Apocalyptic Turn and the Future of Christian Theology 

Philip Ziegler

Baker Academic

This clear and comprehensive introduction to apocalyptic theology demonstrates the significance of apocalyptic readings of the New Testament for systematic theology and highlights the ethical implications of the apocalyptic turn in biblical and theological studies. Written by a leading theologian and proponent of apocalyptic theology, this primer explores the impact of important recent Pauline scholarship on contemporary theology and argues for a renewed understanding of key Christian doctrines, including sin, grace, revelation, redemption, and the Christian life.



Jesus Becoming Jesus: A Theological Interpretation of the Synoptic Gospels 

Thomas Weinandy, OFM, CAP

Catholic Univ. Press of America


Jesus Becoming Jesus is a masterwork by one of America’s finest theologians ― a brilliant, profoundly Catholic act of scholarship, scrupulously thorough, beautifully written, faithful to Vatican II’s Dei Verbum, and in service to the ‘sacred page’ as the Word of God. Father Weinandy has offered us yet another superb contribution to the life of the Church.”
– Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia

“We are fortunate to have this excellent interpretation of the person of Jesus as presented in the Gospels. Many persons have longed for a more serious engagement between the study of the biblical text and the development of Christian doctrine. Fr. Weinandy provides the reader with an outstanding model for this classic―but too often neglected―spiritual discipline.”
– Gary Anderson, University of Notre Dame

“This book is refreshingly―and also challengingly―different from most commentaries on the Gospels. Thomas Weinandy is a theologian for whom the church’s doctrinal tradition is a living source of inspiration and insight. His reading of the Gospels is informed on every page by a fully incarnational and trinitarian faith. By focusing on the events of the Gospel narrative he forges a sophisticated and attractive theology of the saving acts of God. In these acts Jesus, he maintains, enters into his own identity as “YHWH saves.” They are acts of the triune God, enacted in the humanity of Jesus so that humans can enter into communion with the triune God.”
– Richard Bauckham, Emeritus Professor of New Testament, St. Andrews University, Scotland
