In many of his books, John L. McKenzie has confined himself to the exposition of one theme. Here is a chance to encounter his thinking on a wide variety of biblical topics--a first-rate sampling of McKenzie at large.
Besides the title chapter, he focuses on (among others) such intriguing subjects as "The Real Jesus," "The Real Mary," "The State in Christian Perspective," "War and Peace in the New Testament," "Myths in the Bible," "The Book of Revelation"--and concludes with "The Bible: A Progress Report."
The Bible does not so much give answers as lead to answers. It puts the right questions directly in a form which does not permit evasion. It confronts us with challenges to action which are urgent. McKenzie does well to dig out and squarely state the hard questions which the Bible presents to the modern world.
