The Cross in Our Context: Jesus and the Suffering World
- In stock
"A resounding attack on triumphalism in its every
theological manifestation. Hall's compact systematics is a vigorous stimulus
for readers to think afresh through the basics of the Christian theological
tradition. One of the most exciting books I've read in some time!"
— David G. Truemper, Professor of Theology, Valparaiso University
"A compelling distillation of a compelling theology!
Decades of insightful work are brought to bear on the essentials — understanding
of God, Christ, humankind, church and world. Even those who have followed Hall
closely since Lighten Our Darkness will find The Cross in Our Context particularly rewarding for a post-9/11 world."
— Larry Rasmussen, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics, Union Theological Seminary
"Subtle, passionate, and knowing...a coherent case
for discipleship on an intentional and daring kind. This book gives ready
access to the thinking and faith of one of our finest thinkers, a welcome
addition to a remarkable corpus of evangelical faith."
— Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
