In this series of messages based on Scripture, Robert McAfee Brown demonstrates the vital applications of the Bible for our own times. Brown first deals with the great words of faith such as love, grace, and reconciliation. Then he includes a number of chapters that shed modern light on various events in Jesus' life and beyond. For instance, angels, as if in an advertising agency, plan for the visit of the three kings. Television news covers Passion week. Doubting Thomas in his old age recalls Jesus' resurrection. A third group of messages show the Bible addressing social issues such as sexuality and violence.
