Item description for Cross Examinations: Readings on the Meaning of the Cross Today by Marit A. Trelstad...

Overview
In today's theological landscape the significance of the cross has become strongly affirmed and radically questioned. This exciting volume gathers theologians and historians who have thought through these critical and constructive issues: Do traditional understandings of the cross valorize suffering or violence? Are the older soteriological models, which see redemption as a kind of ransom or debt satisfaction, fitting for the contemporary worldview? Do they produce a piety that acquiesces in needless suffering, or does the cross precisely meet the massive suffering and injustice of today's world? Following an expert introduction to the issues and options by editor Marit Trelstad, each author addresses the Christian symbol of the cross in the context of current theological, sociological, political, or environmental issues.

a must-have for serious students of theology  Nov 5, 2006
I find this book to be scholarly and profound--well-written and above all, interesting. Just what we have been looking for in a world where "the cross" means a thousand different things.
