A future for the historical Jesus : the place of Jesus in preaching and theology by Leander E Keck( Book )

27 editions published between 1971 and 1981 in English and Korean and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author affirms that the historical Jesus is central to the Christian faith. He clarifies what is meant by "the historical Jesus" and discusses the place of the historian's Jesus in Christian faith. Three basic questions are explored: How shall we present the historical Jesus in the sermon so men can trust him? What are the results of trusting Jesus; the relation of trust to salvation? What is the significance of the historical Jesus for understanding God?
Christ's first theologian : the shape of Paul's thought by Leander E Keck( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For half a century Leander Keck thought, taught, and wrote about the New Testament. He first served as a Professor of New Testament at Vanderbilt Divinity School and Emory University's Candler School of Theology before becoming Dean and Professor of Biblical Theology at Yale Divinity School. Keck's lifelong work on Jesus and Paul was a catalyst for the emerging discussions of New Testament Christology and Pauline theology in the Society of Biblical Literature and the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas. Keck wrote a staggering number of now industry-standard articles on the New Testament. Here, they are all collected for the first time. In Christ's First Theologian and Why Christ Matters, readers will discover how Keck gave new answers to old questions even as he carefully reframed old answers into new questions. Keck's work is a treasure trove of historical, exegetical, and theological interpretation. -- from dust jacket

Who is Jesus? : history in perfect tense by Leander E Keck( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Who is Jesus? Leander E. Keck discusses the quest for the Jewish Jesus of history and challenges readers to think seriously not only about Jesus' historical existence but also about his ongoing moral and theological significance. Rather than asking and answering questions solely about Jesus as a historical figure, Keck considers Jesus' current identity as well and, in doing so, responds to and expands upon the historians' reconstruction."--Jacket

The Pauline letters by Leander E Keck( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Images of the church in the New Testament by Paul S Minear( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1960, when Images of the Church in the New Testament was first published, there was nothing quite like it. Even forty years later, it remains unparalleled, much less surpassed. Among those conversant with English-speaking biblical scholarship, it still springs immediately to mind in discussions of ecclesiology - the study of the church. Unlike its nearest kin thematically and in influence, Avery Dulles' Models of the Church (1874, 1987), Images of the Church is not a contribution to doctrinal systematics. It is, instead, an exercise in the replenishment of theological imagination: a comprehensive study of nearly 100 metaphors or analogies for the church in the New Testament. This is no mere register or dry compendium of tropes."--Jacket
Romans by Leander E Keck( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like widely differing siblings raised by the same parents, each letter produced by Paul has its own distinguishing character. For the historically minded critic, each letter’s unique traits provide important clues for detecting the circumstances in which Paul wrote it as well as what he hoped to achieve with it. Scholars assume that by examining the content of the letter (the “answer”), they can infer the readers’ situation that Paul is addressing (the “question”)--a method sometimes called “mirror reading.” In the case of Romans, however, both the particular traits and the overall content are so unusual that scholars continue to debate why Paul wrote precisely this letter and what he hoped to achieve by it in Rome." So begins Leander Keck's seminal work on the New Testament book of Romans. Keck asserts that because Romans is part of the New Testament, we can compare it with the other letters ascribed to Paul, as well as with what Acts reports about his message and mission. But the first readers of Romans had only this letter; they could compare it only with what they may have heard about him. While this commentary does from time to time compare Romans with what Paul had said before, it concentrates on Romans itself; what Paul says in this text should not be conflated with--nor inflated into--what he thought comprehensively, though it is essential to understand that as well. --

Echoes of the Word by Leander E Keck( )

7 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a series of essays, sermons and lectures from his long career, and covering subjects ranging from historicity to the importance of listening and sympathy, Leander E. Keck suggests that now is the time for introspection among Christians. Facing a crisis of secularisation, he calls not merely for unity, but for a period of serious and reflective thought. Grounding his arguments in a profound understanding of both the Biblical texts and their historical context, he offers a deep analysis of how Christianity has been influenced by new converts down the centuries who brought their own philosophies to the table, and speaks movingly of how essential it is to love one another as Christ loved us
