How can its instructions to civilizations of three and four thousand years ago be relevant to our contemporary hi-tech age? This book wrestles with such questions. Each chapter, a whole in itself, addresses some aspect of how the Bible may speak today as Kraus engages a variety of major issues, including christology, hermeneutics, peace, sexuality, creationism, miracles, social justice, and spiritual reality. Includes notes and index. Mark D. Baker, Associate Professor of Mission and Theology, Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary, says that In this era of specialization, few can so competently use and integrate the disciplines of biblical studies, historical theology, Anabaptist studies, missiology, and North American church history. Kraus, drawing on his decades as teacher, missionary, scholar, and churchman, challenges Anabaptists with the necessity of contextualization in the multiple cultures of the twenty-first-century church.
