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.

"This is generous evangelicalism at its best....Boersma does a fine job of bringing Scripture and tradition to bear on the contemporary situation all for the sake of the church's participation in the divine hospitality."
