The Central Message Of The New Testament by Joachim Jeremias hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
SCM Press, 1965, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: One of the most distinguished of New Testament scholars, Professor Jeremias of Gottingen concisely expounds what he calls four chapters in New Testament theology. These are: the prayer of Jesus to God as Abba, the amazing word which all his followers were authorized to repeat; the sacrificial interpretation of the cross, traced to the words of Jesus himself; the way in which Paul translated the teaching of Jesus into theology and thus developed the controversial formula justification by faith; and an early Christian hymn about Jesus, adapted as the Prologue to St Johns gospel and now studied in depth.
Although based on great learning, this exposition by Dr Jeremias will be clear to those who do not know the ancient languages. Of all his books, this is perhaps the most powerful and certainly the simplest. The central message is heard as Gods grace and truth for the unworthy, proclaimed by the historical Jesus.
