The cross is central to understanding Christian theology. But is it possible that our postmodern setting requires a new model of understanding the cross?
Hans Boersma's "Violence, Hospitality, and the Cross" proposes an understanding of the atonement that is sensitive both to the Christian tradition and to the postmodern critiques of that tradition. His fresh approach draws on the rich resources of the Christian tradition in its portrayal of God's hospitality in Jesus Christ.
