Scandalous God by Vitor Westhelle

Book Description

"Theology of the Cross" is an important site of religious reflection and controversy, especially today. Westhelle repeatedly uncovers the evasions - personal, social, religious, and even theological - by which we skirt the sharp challenge that the Cross and suffering love pose to a culture, lifestyle, and economy that avoid suffering and evade love. And he challenges every Christian to embrace Jesus' cross to find our own resurrection.
