Telford Work

Baker Academic

Telford Work examines some of the most important ways Jesus is “the omega and the alpha”–the end and the beginning. Jesus alone fulfills the divine purpose for all things, brings about the end of the old world’s evil and suffering, and begins eternity’s new creation. This core conviction is one of the deepest logics that shapes Christian thinking and life. The author offers a unique, big-picture introduction to how Jesus’s life and death shape Christian theology and practice and helps readers fully understand Jesus’s transformation of all things.

“Telford Work invites us to follow him to oft-avoided vantage points where new vistas of Christ can be pondered. Contemplating Jesus as the omega and alpha draws disciples deeper into the richness of Christ’s beauty, provoking us to grapple with our rehearsed Christologies and compelling us to explore afresh what it means for Jesus to be the center of Christian faith for us today.”
Brian Lugioyo, Azusa Pacific University
