This book presents a synthesis of Alan Sell’s theology drawn from his
voluminous publications. What
emerges is a theology rooted in and flowing from the Cross-Resurrection
event. The result is a
generous, if eclectic, expression of Christian orthodoxy. The critical
phase of the book turns upon the question whether Sell’s “generous”
orthodoxy is generous enough: do his theological conclusions actually do
justice to the life and ministry of Jesus? And secondly, are they
credible in the contemporary world? For all Sell’s commitment to
apologetics, does his theology actually speak to contemporary hearers?
