Although it is a foundational confession for all Christians, much of the theological significance of Jesus's identity as the Son of God is often overlooked or misunderstood. Moreover, this Christological concept stands at the center of today's Bible translation debates and increased ministry efforts to Muslims.

New Testament scholar D. A. Carson sheds light on this important issue with his usual exegetical clarity and theological insight, first by broadly surveying Jesus's biblical name as the Son of God, and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ's sonship. The audiobook concludes with the implications of Jesus's divine sonship for how modern Christians think and speak about Christ, especially in relation to Bible translation and missionary engagement with Muslims across the globe.

    " Good read. I particularly liked the final chapter, ""Jesus the Son of God" in Christian and Muslim Contexts," wherein Carson deals in depth with the controversy of SIL/Wycliffe changing the translation of "Son of God" in some of their bibles for Muslims to terms deemed less offensive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Robbins | 6/11/2013

    " Excellent short treatise on the topic of Jesus as the "Son of God," its OT background and use in the NT, and its practical implications for Christians and in translation in Muslim contexts. Vintage Carson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 5/28/2013

    " This book was short, but very deep. It is definitely not for a new believer and it certainly is not a book that lays out in simple terms what the Bible means by the Son of God. It takes work to figure it out completely and I will be processing it for the rest of my life I'm afraid. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Krycho | 5/19/2013

    " A really excellent little volume on the doctrine of Jesus' role as the Son of God. I'd love to see Carson expand this into a full-length monograph. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Darrow | 12/14/2012

    " Short yet very precise. More than just giving a brief exegesis of the term "Son of God", it challenges cultural pragmatism in Bible translation, specifically to Islamic cultures. I strongly recommend this book! "
