The Cross in Contexts : Suffering and Redemption in Palestine Paperback / softback
Why did Jesus die? And in what ways did his crucifixion offer redemption to the world?
Those questions, which lie at the heart of Christian faith, remain a pressing concern for theological reflection.
What sets this work apart is that the authors-a Palestinian theologian from Bethlehem and a New Testament scholar from the United States-explore the meaning of the cross in light of both first and twenty-first century Palestinian contexts.
Together, their insights coalesce around themes that expose the divine power of the cross both for Jesus' first followers and for contemporary readers alike.
