Names for the Messiah, author Walter Brueggemann
During Advent: From the Publisher: in Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to use using four royal titles - Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
Names for the Messiah ponders each royal designation and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfill the title, and how Christian interpret Jesus as a repreentative of that title.
