Parable of the Dancing God, by C. Baxter KrugerIn this eBook, Kruger vividly retells the parable of the prodigal son (including the full text of Luke 15:1-32). His fresh interpretation focuses not on the prodigal son, but on the character of the father as it is revealed through his interaction with his two very different sons.
Kruger preaches and lectures throughout the United States in his role as director of Perichoresis, Inc. He has worked previously as a minister to college students, as a lecturer in theology at the University of Aberdeen, and as an associate pastor.
The Scandal of Jesus, by Vinoth RamachandraThere is something about Jesus that from the beginning has been distasteful, even scandalous, says Vinoth Ramachandra. He was tortured and crucified, the most humiliating form of execution in the ancient world. Everything about his life and death catches the world by surprise. Some may try to claim that he was just another prophet or great teacher, but what other prophet or teacher has been more enigmatic or shocking? You can search the religious traditions of humankind and you will not come across one like Jesus, who makes seemingly the most arrogant claims concerning himself and lives in the most humble and selfless manner conceivable. Jesus of Nazareth simply blows the imagination apart. In this eBook you'll join Vinoth Ramachandra in an exploration of this Jesus, exploring what made him so outrageous when he walked on earth, what makes him unique today and why his scandalous claims must be true.
Vinoth Ramachandra is secretary for dialogue and social engagement for the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in South Asia. Along with several books published by InterVarsity Press, he has also written The Recovery of Mission. He lives in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
