The more I study this issue, the more I see it as crucially important to understanding the Gospel. And the more I come to realize how many Christians misunderstand this issue in today’s climate of “End Times” conspiracy theories.
It’s not a big book, it’s just 106 pages. Packed with Scripture and the kind of fascinating theological insights you’ve come to expect from this theo-dramatic writer.
Israel: the Chosen People, the children of Abraham. They were God’s elect in the Old Testament. But why were they so special to God? And does that specialness carry over to the New Testament? But what about the Church of Jesus Christ? Are there 2 Peoples of God?
It’s all about Jesus, folks. The Old Testament is all about Jesus.
I examine how the promise of God to Abraham was fulfilled in the New Testament through the faithful Israelite, Jesus the Messiah, and how that changes everything.
If you love C.S. Lewis and Sci-Fi, you will WANT to buy this book.
I wrote the foreword to this mind-bending exploration of all things Lewis and sci-fi in media entertainment.
Here is the description:
The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis’s masterpiece in ethics and the philosophy of science, warns of the danger of combining modern moral skepticism with the technological pursuit of human desires. The end result is the final destruction of human nature. From Brave New World to Star Trek, from steampunk to starships, science fiction film has considered from nearly every conceivable angle the same nexus of morality, technology, and humanity of which C. S. Lewis wrote. As a result, science fiction film has unintentionally given us stunning depictions of Lewis’s terrifying vision of the future. In Science Fiction Film and the Abolition of Man, scholars of religion, philosophy, literature, and film explore the connections between sci-fi film and the three parts of Lewis’s book: how sci-fi portrays “Men without Chests” incapable of responding properly to moral good, how it teaches the Tao or “The Way,” and how it portrays “The Abolition of Man.”
