Publisher's Summary

Although it is a foundational confession for all Christians, much of the theological significance of Jesus’s identity as “the Son of God” is often overlooked or misunderstood. Moreover, this Christological concept stands at the center of today’s Bible translation debates and increased ministry efforts to Muslims.

New Testament scholar D. A. Carson sheds light on this important issue with his usual exegetical clarity and theological insight, first by broadly surveying Jesus’s biblical name as “the Son of God”, and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ’s sonship. The audiobook concludes with the implications of Jesus’s divine sonship for how modern Christians think and speak about Christ, especially in relation to Bible translation and missionary engagement with Muslims across the globe.

A necessary book

An excellent and necessary book for today. All Christians should read this book in order to think more clearly about what it means for Jesus to be the Son of God, but it is especially important for those who interact with unitarians to grasp the content of this book.

Well worth the read/listen.

Jesus the Son of God: A Christological Title Often Overlooked, Sometimes Misunderstood, and Currently Disputed.

Have just finished the very insightful work, I’m about to go back and re-listen to catch those nuisances I failed to keep up with.

Philosophy 101

The headline is misleading. The work is a philosophical dance routine, which ends where it begins.

Awesome!!!

Easy to take in, easy to understand, the concepts expounded are very deep and significant to a correct understanding of Jesus.

i was deeply impressed with his section on trying to explain Christ to others in our culture or any other culture. His basic premise is it's a human problem in refusing to accept that Jesus is God and His is Sovereign.
(i would recommend "Fool's Folly by Os Guinness, Dr Carson's book is a great follow up book to "Fool's Folly)

This is a book i will be purchasing in print.

i love audiobook's because i am able to see if the hardcover is worth buying. This book (and Os Guinness's) are worth the price to have both audio and printed editions, perhaps even kindle)

Thoughtful and provoking.

The substance in this book is terrific. I found I had to slow it to .9 to make sure I understood it. A lot of theological terms that are not for the faint hearted! But I do love the clarity of DA Carson.
