Vital . . . pertaining to life; essential; of critical importance. Christology . . . the study of the person and work of Jesus Christ. Issues . . . a point or matter, the decision of which is of special or public importance. A dictionary can define the terms, but tackling the tough texts and difficult issues of church leadership requires skillful study and balanced reflection upon the whole of Scripture. Vital Christology Issues draws upon the insights and study of numerous evangelical scholars and writers to address crucial issues in Christology. Some of the chapters included are: The Ministry of Christ in His Life on Earth by John F. Walvoord The Temptation of Christ by S. Lewis Johnson Jr. The Savior's Sufferings in Life by Robert P. Lightner Christian readers, church leaders, and pastors will appreciate the helpful guidance of Vital Christology Issues. Roy B.
