At the very center of Christianity, indeed, at the very center of world history, stands the cross of Jesus. Unfortunately, the forces and factors of Western culture, especially those related to Christianity’s collusion with political power and ideologies, have caused us to misunderstand and misapply the true revolutionary character of the cross. As a result, Christian theology and the witness of the Church have been severely impaired.
In their most recent publications, N.T. Wright (The Day the Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus’s Crucifixion) and Greg Boyd (The Crucifixion of the Warrior God), address this head on.
In this 90 minute webinar led by Dennis Edwards, Senior Pastor of Sanctuary Covenant Church, Wright and Boyd lay out the big ideas of their books and field questions submitted by those in the Missio Alliance audience.
