Overview

In The Unrelenting God, accomplished scholars in the fields of biblical and theological studies explore ways in which Scripture speaks about God’s character and God’s activity in the world. As honoree Beverly Roberts Gaventa has done throughout her career, the contributors address important and nuanced theological themes such as God’s dramatic invasion of the world in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, God’s ultimate triumph over the powers of sin and death, and humanity’s ongoing participation with God in Christ.
