This season at Servants of Grace, we’ve been taking a look at the person and work of Jesus. From attacks against the idea of Jesus dying in our place for our sin, to the exclusivity of Christ, many people have a great deal of questions about the person and work of Jesus. With this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, we hope that readers would grow in their understanding of the person and work of Jesus. If you’ve found this subject interesting and want to study the issue further, please check out the recommended reading list below. These are at the top of this genre in both excellence and readability.
