The Cross in Our Context

Douglas John Hall

The Cross in Our Context

Douglas John Hall

$27.99

Paperback
Readers: General readers (college level); college, university, and seminary students; theologians; clergy

- Publisher With gem-like precision, Hall condenses his most profound insights from the full-scale systematics: Thinking the Faith, Professing the Faith, and Confessing the Faith. How does Christ's passion relate to a suffering world? A Christology that goes to the heart of what it means to be human.

- Publisher In this small gem of theological reflection, North America's foremost "theologian of the cross" offers a profound and compelling contemplation on the relevance of the church's most fundamental confession. Hall ponders what confessing Jesus as crucified means in today's context, one that is postmodern, pluralistic, multicultural, and in some respects post-Christian. A digest of his monumental trilogy, this book lays out in brief compass the heart of Hall's theology of the cross, contrasting it sharply with the theology of established Christianity, showing how it reframes classical Christology and soteriology, and drawing the implications for what it means to be human, for Christian ethics, and for the church.
