NSBT: Adopted into Gods Family
Trevor J. Burke (Series Editor: D. A. Carson)
Regular Price: $22.00
Unique to Paul's writings is the term huiothesia, the process or act of being "adopted as son(s)." Burke argues that huiothesia has been misunderstood, misrepresented or neglected through scholarly preoccupation with its cultural background. He redresses the balance in this comprehensive study, which discusses metaphor theory; explores the background to huiothesia; considers the roles of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; examines the moral implications of adoption, and its relationship with honor; and concludes with the consequences for Christian believers as they live in the tension between the "now" and the "not yet" of their adoption into God's new family.
