Divine Initiative and the Christology of the Damascus Road Encounter
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Writing with fresh insight, Tim Churchill provides readers focus and perspective on the One who appeared to Paul on the Damascus road. His book captures the essence of the developing Christology of the early believers through close examination of this epiphany. He likens it to earlier encounters in the history where God takes the initiative in divine visitations. He links the person of Jesus Christ directly with the Holy One of Israel deepening our understanding of God. I commend this book to biblical scholars and serious students of Scripture."

"This clear, lucid, and readable book approaches the Pauline and Lukan accounts of Saul/Paul's Damascus road encounter from the perspective of the one who appeared to Paul. This is a fresh approach, since previous studies have focused on the effects of the encounter on Paul himself, but with little attempt--if any--to consider what we learn about the one who appeared. Churchill's approach adds to our understanding of the early Christians' beliefs about Jesus, and also contributes to our understanding of how the early believers came to those beliefs."
