The cross alone is our theology," said Martin Luther. Yet over the last two decades, the idea of atonement has come under heavy attack from feminist theologians and others who argue that traditional formulations valorize suffering. Deanna Thompson takes up this challenge forthrightly in this creative and nuanced argument. Directly engaging with Martin Luther's thought and his Heidelberg Disputation, as well as with feminist theologies, Thompson constructs a promising and life-giving theology of the cross.
Over the last two decades, traditional formulations of the idea of atonement have come under heavy attack from feminist theologians and others. They argue that the traditional view valorizes suffering and encourages people to acquiesce in needless self-sacrificing, that it is unseemly to think of God as demanding suffering of his son, and that the theology of the cross needs to be rethought in light of the whole life, ministry, and resurrection of Jesus. Equally committed to the insights of the theology of the cross and feminist theology, Deanna Thompson takes up these contentious issues here in a creative and nuanced way. Her work emerges from direct engagement with Martin Luther and the Heidelberg Disputation as well as with the architects of reformist feminism. She finds surprising common ground on issues of suffering, abuse, atonement, reform, ethics, and the import of Jesus, and her book culminates in a constructive and promising feminist theology of the cross.
