The cross has long been not only a scandal but also a profound paradox: filled with saving significance and power, it is at the same time a sobering tragedy.In "Saved from Sacrifice" theologian Mark Heim takes on this paradox, asserting that the cross must be understood against the whole history of human scapegoating violence. While the cross is a tragedy, it is also a vindication for the victim, a reversal of traditional persecution attitudes, and a chance for all humans to gather around one table.In order to highlight the dimensions of his argument, Heim carefully and critically draws on the groundbreaking work of French theorist and biblical scholar Reni Girard. Yet Heim goes beyond Girard to develop a comprehensive theology of the atonement and the cross through his fresh readings of well-known biblical passages and his exploration of the place of the victim.Thorough, insightful, and readable, Heim's "Saved from Sacrifice" will intrigue theologians, clergy, and all who ponder the ongoing paradox of the cross.
