About this item

Until the gospel of Jesus Christ burst upon the Mediterranean world, writes Fleming Rutledge, no one in the history of human imagination had ever conceived of such a thing as the worship of a crucified man.In this book Rutledge looks at the crucifixion of Christ from every angle, considering a broad spectrum of themes and motifs used in the New Testament to interpret Christs horrific death by public torture. Only in such a rich interplay of themes, she argues, can the full gospel of Christs death for the salvation of the world be fully understood and fully embraced.A good two decades in the making, Rutledges Crucifixion addresses the singular absence of preaching about the cross in churches today. As theologian Robert Jenson says, This justly celebrated preacher has been digging into the doctrine of atonement for many years. Here is the rich harvest of her labors -- a resource especially for preachers like herself.
