Item description for A Theology of the Cross: The Death of Jesus in the Pauline Letters (Overtures to Biblical Theology) by Charles B. Cousar...
Overview A THEOLOGY OF THE CROSS, by Charles Cousar investigates the importance and role of the death of Jesus in the letters of Paul. Cousar attempts to move beyond the category of justifi cation in his understanding of the Pauline writings. Cousar believes that our North American dominant cultural values are massively resistant to a theology of the cross. The author then proposes that a very different set of cate- gories are needed. The shift of categories touches every aspect of life, socio-economic and episetmological as well as ethical.
