"Who is Jesus?" is the most important question which any of us must face. Our answer to that question will determine not only the way we live in this world but also our eternal destiny. This booklet sets out in a clear, understandable way the reasons why we should believe Jesus's claims to be the Son of God.
That Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical person is a well-attested fact. The evidence for His existence is greater than that for many historical figures, e.g. Julius Caesar. Yet many today would deny that He was truly Man. Because He is fully Man, yet at the same time fully God, He alone is the Saviour of the world.
"Why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46) are the telling words of Jesus. This booklet sets out the biblical view of the Lordship of Christ and challenges us to examine our response to His Lordship.
Who controls the church? In today's world, it is vital to have a biblical answer to this important question. The Lord Jesus is Head of His church, His body, controlling and directing it by His Holy Spirit. A church that does not answer to its Head is as lifeless as a headless body.
How can buildings better reflect the needs of their inhabitants? How can cities better facilitate the work and recreation of their many populaces? Modernism had promised a functionalist approach to resolving the architectural needs of the twentieth-century, yet the design of cities and buildings often appears to confound the needs of those who use them - their design and layout being highly regulated by restrictive legislation, planning controls and bureaucracy.
Non-Plan considers the theoretical and conceptual frameworks within which architecture and urbanism have sought to challenge entrenched boundaries of control, focusing on the architectural history of the post-war period to the present day. This provocative book will be of interest to architects, planners and students of architecture, design, town-planning and architectural history. Its contributors include architects, critics and historians, including many whose work helped shape the Non-Plan debate during the period.
