Everlasting Father: Rediscovering the First Christmas Gift

Overview

Encounter Jesus as your Everlasting Father.
We know Jesus by many names: Savior, Son of God, Son of Man, Lord of All. In the book of Isaiah, Scripture also assigns him several other titles, including one we don’t often consider: “Everlasting Father.” Why is Jesus, God’s Son, also called our “Father”? How can the “child given” to us be at once both Lord and Son?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Halliday and Young, whose previous collaborations have focused on Jesus Christ as "wonderful counselor" and "mighty God," now turn their attention to Jesus as "everlasting father." This, of course, presents a bit of a theological conundrum, as Jesus is supposed to be God's son. However, the authors draw successfully from the well of Trinitarian theology (a refreshing change of pace for a decidedly evangelical publication) to demonstrate that Jesus is simultaneously father and son. The book, which is arranged into 14 short chapters and could be used as an Advent devotional, is at its best when the authors are doing biblical exegesis. Less successful are the brief interweavings of fiction with the nonfiction; one, for example, is a poor aping of C. S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters. The nonfiction prose sometimes tries too hard, also. ("If Jesus is the reason for the season, then does Rudolph give a mule ride of a yuletide?" Huh?)

    He is no CS Lewis

    Halliday's intention is well meaning in a over intellectual teenage way but I find his writing stilted at places and a bit heavy handed thus distancing the reader from the Lord's depth and the simplicity to just believe. Halliday's effort is acceptable if you've never read CS Lewis first.
