"The Ironic Patterns of Biblical Theology
Gregory K. Beale - 2019-11-12
Goodreads Rating
Discover how the Bible is full of ironic situations in which God overturns the world's wisdom. In this book, biblical scholar G.K. Beale explores God's pattern of divine irony in both judgment and salvation, finding its greatest expression in Jesus's triumph over death through death on a cross. Unpacking this pattern throughout redemptive history, Beale shows us how God often uses what is seemingly weak and foolish to underscore his own strength and power in the lives of his people today.
