At every Sunday Mass, Catholics confess that Jesus came down from heaven “for us men and for our salvation.” But what does “salvation” mean? In this robust and accessible book, Scripture scholar and theologian Michael Patrick Barber provides a thorough, deeply Catholic, and deeply biblical answer. He deftly tackles this complex topic, unpacking what the New Testament teaches about salvation in Christ, detailing what exactly salvation is, and what it is not. He explains what the Cross, the Church and the Trinity have to do with salvation. While intellectually stimulating, this book is deeply spiritual, and at its core is the salvific message that God is love, and his love is one of transformation and redemption. Paper.
