Om On Eagles' Wings
A volume of practical and scriptural essays, written by Biblical scholars, theologians, and Christian ministry practitioners exploring the idea of strength in weakness in Christian life. The book covers the idea in both Old and New Testament passages that suggest human weakness and divine strength, exemplified by the people of Israel, a community reliant on grace. Mark's portrayal of Jesus Christ indicates that it is in weakness that Christ saves. Paul's paradigm for ministry suggests the same. The teaching of strength in weakness is examined in Luther's life, Calvin's view of prayer, Barth's theology, and the divine dealing with the world. Pastoral theology demonstrates the signii-- cance of this theme for a suffering church in its mission to the world as well as its importance for preaching the leading of God's people today. The book faces the overemphasis on power in today's church, and proposes ways to engage in ministry and mission with biblical humility and reliance on God's grace.
