About the Author

Gerit Dawson is Minister of First Presbyterian Church, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


This is an extremely lucid and readable book on a central Christian doctrine that is as profoundly important theologically as it has been quietly sidelined both by preachers and theologians! With admirable openness and straightforwardness, the author articulates the reasons why discussion of the ascension is so often avoided and addresses these with historically informed and, indeed, deep-thinking theological insight. This allows him to go on to demonstrate why the doctrine, rather than being shied away from, stands to be embraced as definitive of the Good News from which the Christian faith lives. This is a truly outstanding book for students, pastors and thinking Christians alike. I could not recommend it more enthusiastically! Alan Torrance
"A very helpful book... any minsiter stuck for how to teach the ascension will find much help here. I heartily commend it" Matthew Sleeman, Churchman --Sanford Lakoff
'...Dawson's case for the importance of the theology is convincing...what makes the book really special is the way that Dawson proceeds to work out the theology pastorally...Dawson is that rare thing, a true pastor-theologian. We need more of them. Read this book for the theology and apply it in your church.' Volume 22, Number 3--Sanford Lakoff "Anvil "
'This book is a welcome addition to the study of a neglected doctrine...Dawson's pastoral concern combined with his scholarly research makes this book suitable for a wide audience...For those of us studying the doctrine of the ascension in an academic setting, it is particularly refreshing to see the gulf between pastor and scholar being bridged.' Sandra Fach, King's College, London, International Journal of Systematic Theology--Sanford Lakoff
