Description

McKinley explores and evaluates several models that have been developed of Christ’s impeccability and temptation. His pneumatological account maintains that Jesus was truly tempted in ways that are closely relevant to the temptations common to us. Thus Jesus provides true help as the credible example to follow and truly sympathetic ally in the fight against sin.
