Item Description...
"Theology of the Cross" is an important site of religious reflection and controversy, especially today. Westhelle repeatedly uncovers the evasions - personal, social, religious, and even theological - by which we skirt the sharp challenge that the cross and suffering love pose to a culture, lifestyle, and economy that avoid suffering and evade love. And he challenges every Christian to embrace Jesus' cross to find our own resurrection. A passionate argument for the relevance of the Cross today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Deep  Apr 30, 2009
I am not analyzing the book here, I just want to balance another review posted about this book. With all due respect, the reviewer that said this is not a good book because of its deepness should rethink and appreciate the book for this very reason. The book is well written with deep, but accessible, historical, theological, and philosophical analysis. It certainly requires some background knowledge about early Christianity, theological and philosophical terms and concepts, and literature devices. In it, you will find quotations and references to Garcia Marquez, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and many others; popular cultures are also used to exemplify the author's ideas. Therefore, if you are looking for an intelligent approach of Jesus' crucifixion get this book and read it!
Too Deep For Even Paul the Apostle!  Jul 15, 2008
I purchased this book for my this siteKindle. The title is what attracted me. I am an educated minister and have read many books on the subject of the cross as I believe it is the most important subject in the church of Christ. But I am sorry that I have to say that this book is so difficult to understand that I finally had to give up reading it.

I'm not sure what audience the author was targeting for such an important subject, but there is no doubt that it was not your average layman. I was so looking forward to what the title suggested but having to hack through the jungle of vocabulary that required constant use of a dictionary and inundated with highbrow intellectualism, I felt lost and unsure of any point. There were moments when I thought we actually landed on a path that was going to take us somewhere only to be engulfed again in the thickness of cerebral elucidation and seeing how many compound words can be fit into a single sentence.

I do not write this to hurt or offend the author but only to state that I think he missed an opportunity to reach the masses with a subject that should be on the minds of every believer today. I get frustrated with books written by professors because I believe that many of them fall into the temptation of trying to impress their own colleagues with their in-depth knowledge, that the book ends up being useless to us commoners. If this book was not intended to be read by the masses, it should have been. The title alone is worth discussion. Obviously, nothing can be done about it now, but I am disappointed that I spent the money.
