What are we defending when we affirm that Jesus is the Son of God?

Theologian Donald Carson offers a study of the expression "Son of God" as it appears in the Bible. It demonstrates all the richness of expression, which is not limited to highlighting the divinity of Christ. It also takes into account the numerous texts in which “son of God” does not refer to Jesus.

Additionally, Professor Carson immerses his readers in important current debates regarding the transmission of the biblical message to people of Muslim culture and faith. In their interactions with Muslims, should Christians present Jesus as the Son of God? Should biblical translations intended for populations influenced by Islam use other words to talk about Jesus, rather than sticking to one expression (“Son of God”) which arouses strong reactions in these circles?

Far from offering a simplistic response to these complex debates, Carson charts a stimulating journey that will leave no reader indifferent. He begins by analyzing biblical data. He then questions the classic formulations that emanate from Christian theology: are they always consistent with biblical language? Finally, it offers relevant suggestions for Bible translators and Christians concerned with faithfully conveying the biblical portrait of Jesus, the Son of God.
