Is God still, as it has been argued, the "neglected factor" in New Testament theology? How does the Bible speak imaginatively and concretely about who God is and what God's activity on behalf of the world looks like?

In The Unrelenting God sixteen accomplished scholars in the fields of biblical and theological studies explore ways in which Scripture speaks about God's character and God's activity in the world. As honoree Beverly Roberts Gaventa has done throughout her career, the contributors address important and nuanced theological themes such as God's dramatic invasion of the world in the gospel of Jesus Christ, God's ultimate triumph over the powers of sin and death, and humanity's ongoing participation with God in Christ.

Scholars, students, and church leaders will appreciate this volume's careful theological interpretation of whole scriptural books and individual passages -- and its ability to model instructively how that interpretation is best done.

Interpretation
"Sixteen distinguished biblical scholars and theologians engage in theologically informed interpretation of Scripture, exploring how various biblical writers, especially Luke and Paul, describe God's unrelenting commitment to and activity in the world, and addressing important and nuanced theological themes such as God's dramatic invasion of the world in the gospel of Jesus Christ, God's ultimate triumph over the powers of sin and death, and humanity's ongoing participation with God in Christ."

Bible Today
"The essays are wide-ranging in topic but have a kind of common ground in that each has a certain theological perspective drawn from analysis of the biblical text engaged. This openness to the theological meaning of Scripture has been a hallmark of Gaventa's own work."

Theological Book Review
"This book will appeal to those desiring to engage in a more theologically robust manner with the authors of Scripture, moving beyond mere historical background, exegetical word studies and anthropologically focused conclusions. In The Unrelenting God one is guaranteed to find an array of models for studying Scripture theologically in the very best sense of the word, inspired by the example of Beverly Roberts Gaventa herself."
