Reviews - What do customers think about The Theology of the Cross for the 21st Century: Signposts for a Multicultural Witness?

Worthy Compilation of Applying Theology of Cross to Today  Apr 23, 2003
This book is collection of essays on using the theology of the cross as opposed to the theology of glory in our times of mulicultural witness.

Broken into the three categories of Signposts, Global Themes and North American Themes, this collection engages the reader to consider the biblical approach of emphasis and center on the cross. Although many may be offended by this and cry out, we do already, not so fast. Read and learn what this means biblically before so doing.

There is much to be gained from this well thought out work, especially how the theology of the cross might play itself out in such diverse witness situations such as Russia, Latinos in America, etc. Bioethics and postmoderism are explored as well.

Witness we must, and this work admonishes the body of Christ to do it with the core and heart of God's revelation, the theology of the cross. Lutherans who already realize this will be encouraged, and those outside such a theology will gain insight into the mind of God for outreach.
