Reconceiving Jesus in the Bible, Tradition, and Theology
Author: Andrew Lincoln
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
" ... Begins by discussing why the virgin birth is such as difficult and divisive topic. The book then deals with a whole range of issues--literary, historical, and hermeneutical--from a critical yet positive perspective that takes seriously creedal confessions and theological concerns"--Publisher.
An Introduction to Christian Doctrine Through the Apostles’ Creed
Author: Michael F. Bird
Modern Christians have often hesitated to embrace the ancient creeds because of our “nothing but the Bible” tradition. In What Christians Ought to Believe Michael Bird opens our eyes to the possibilities of the Apostle’s Creed as a way to explore and understand the basic teachings of the Christian faith. Bringing together theological commentary, tips for application, and memorable illustrations, What Christians Ought to Believe summarizes the basic tenets of the Christian faith using the Apostle’s Creed as its entryway. After first emphasizing the importance of creeds for the formation of the Christian faith, each chapter, following the Creed’s outline, introduces the Father, the Son, and the Spirit and the Church. An appendix includes the Apostles’ Creed in the original Latin and Greek. What Christians Ought to Believe is ideally suited for both the classroom and the church setting to teach beginning students and laypersons the basics of what Christians ought to affirm if they are to be called Christians.

It explores the implications of a retrospective faith that elevated Jesus to perfect divinity, redefining sin.
