Beyond Cheap Grace: A Call to Radical Discipleship, Incarnation, and Justice

As our lives become complex with the demands of our affluent and accelerating society, do we hear the gospel's timeless and insistent call to live the obedience of faith? In these three sermonic essays Eldin Villafane takes on the task of awakening true obedience of faith through the themes of discipleship, incarnation, and justice. Beginning with discipleship, Villafane draws on the Christ hymn of Philippians 2 to challenge Christians to choose the costly Christ-life. He then offers six contrarian perspectives on the incarnation from the early church as correctives to our current, culturally conditioned theological emphases. Finally, taking the book of Amos as a touchstone, Villafane issues a call for just leadership among the nations."
