    Apart from Scripture, I can't recall any book that has excited me more about the Lordship of Christ in all of creation and in His Church in particular...

    In Christianity, as properly authentically "primtively" conceived by Cullman, there is no eternity, only endless time. This makes the life of Christ the "noon of history," and reaffirms an idea of reality locked into a downward path that I think, he might admit, could include the unfathomably long heat death of the cosmos. Not to mention the universe as a big mirror. In Christianity, as properly authentically "primtively" conceived by Cullman, there is no eternity, only endless time.

    This is a classic that shows the centrality of the resurrection to Christian faith - tough read but well worth the effort. Appreciates Cullmann's emphasis and commitment to the Biblical text for his arguments and foundations for his teaching This is a classic that shows the centrality of the resurrection to Christian faith - tough read but well worth the effort.
