Product Description

• Incisive theology, yet accessible
• Small book with large possibilities for group study and personal reflection
• Makes a marvelous Lenten resource

This brilliant series of theological reflections from internationally known scholar and Anglican cleric Samuel Wells reflects on the challenges of our understanding of Christ's crucifixion that arise today using contemporary ideas in history, biblical studies, and philosophy. Wells deals with such questions as:

  • "Does the improbability of one event having significance for everything, everywhere, for all time leave our faith hanging by a thread?"
  • "Does the possibility that elements of the story did not actually happen leave our Christian heritage hanging by a thread?"
  • "Does the history of persecution that flowed from the classical belief that the Jews were responsible for Jesus' death leave our morality hanging by a thread?"

After reflecting upon six biblical stories, Wells discovers that the cross has an enduring power to shape how we live, how we relate to one another, and how we allow ourselves to be enfolded in God's story.

Audience: Laity, clergy, seekers
