God’s Energy 1 — Reclaiming a New Testament Reality

How could it be that the New Testament teaching on God’s energy has remained all but invisible to vast parts of Christianity? What new spiritual and theological possibilities emerge when people embrace this dimension and allow it to shape their daily lives? In this first volume of his Energy Trilogy, Christian A. Schwarz unpacks the New Testament concept of energy, explains its explosive implications for today, and explores factors that made Western Christianity first ignore and then suppress it.
