Publisher's Summary

The question I address in this brief work is how Christ-followers might hold the tension of these two abiding and complementary truths: 

  1. Christ’s one-of-a-kind revelation.
  2. Abba’s all-inclusive love. 

I believe that Sacred Scripture and Christ himself affirm both these doctrines in a mind-blowing fullness. And yet those who enthusiastically profess either one of these two truths frequently do so at the expense of their complement. I am neither an exclusivist nor a pluralist. I believe in both the unique revelation of Christ and the inclusive love of Abba. In the following study, I’ll lay out biblical and experiential evidence for integrating and celebrating both these truths together, espousing the beautiful gospel of Christ’s unique revelation of Abba’s all-inclusive love. 

By “Christ”, I am not referring to some abstract, ethereal, or disincarnate spirit. Following the Apostolic tradition, I mean specifically our “one Lord Jesus Christ”, the Lamb crucified and risen, whose singular revelation unveiled God as our eternal, cruciform and loving Abba. My primary lens for this synthesis is the prologue of John’s Gospel, where I see: God’s One and Only Lamb, crucified and risen - this word who speaks all into being, this Light who shines on all and in all, this Life who breathes life into all, this One unveils God as our all-merciful, all-embracing Abba. I, for one, believe that God’s banqueting table is wide open because of Christ. 

The higher my Christology, the wider I see the reach of Abba’s love. The banquet metaphor is a way to think about both the uniqueness of Christ and the inclusivity of his Abba. The Master of the feast instructed his servants to invite, nay, to compel all to join in the feast. There’s a seat and setting reserved for every human in history. I hope this book magnifies both these glorious truths clearly.

A perspective shift.

The gospel as it is held by so many that go to church every Sunday is a good thing, but it is a minuscule piece of the jigsaw puzzle representing who God really is from the record of Scriptural history, and the extraordinary stories of people who hungered for God. Those who left their comfort zones in search of God himself…This audible book is a fantastic trip into the jungles of that kind of reality.
