Blessed New Humanity in Christ


When surrounded by ethnic and tribal divides, fear of demonic forces, and the threat of poverty, war, and disease, how are Christians to resist despair in the face of suffering – their own and that of their communities?

In Blessed New Humanity in Christ, Rev. Prof. Bitrus A. Sarma offers a contextualized reading of the book of Ephesians that provides a theology of hope for the African church. Looking to the cross as the source of all victory, Sarma reminds his readers of the promises of Scripture. Salvation in Christ is God’s gift to humanity, yet how the church understands that gift determines its ability to live out its calling in a world rife with trials and tribulations. Sarma offers an in-depth exploration of the blessings outlined in Ephesians and the implications of those blessings for Christians longing to experience healing and wholeness in their families, their societies, and their own personal lives.
