The purpose of The Lord from Heaven: A Study of the New Testament Teaching on the Deity and Humanity of Jesus is to give a short and simple outline of the main lines of New Testament thought about the Person of Christ. In particular, Leon Morris makes clear that witness is consistently born to two great truths—that Jesus Christ was God and that He was man. Though the terminology varies the various writers are in impressive basic agreement. Since the book is intended for the general reader rather than the specialist, he has avoided discussion of controversial points. Morris' aim throughout has not been to clear up matters which are in dispute, but to set out what the New Testament has to say on the subject.
The Logos edition of The Lord from Heaven: A Study of the New Testament Teaching on the Deity and Humanity of Jesus allows you to perform powerful searches and word studies, and Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes The Lord from Heaven more powerful and easier to access than ever before for reading, sermon preparation, research, and Bible study.

Praise for the Print Edition
Morris surveys the unfolding teaching regarding Jesus as it develops through the NT. I especially appreciate his treatment of the Gospels and Jesus' own teaching regarding himself, but the entire study is warm and rewarding. A marvelous guide for a series of studies for any pastor or teacher.
