Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAn extraordinary personal and theological examination of what"s wrong with the crucifixion In an emotionally gripping and intellectually rich combination of memoir and theology, Rita Brock and Rebecca Parker show how emphasizingChrist"s obedience to God and sacrifice on the cross sanctions violence, exacerbates its effects, blesses silence about the abuse of human beings, and hinders the process of recovery--giving the fullest and most powerful critique to date of the theology of atonement. "Poignant and provocative. . . . Brock and Parker have written a book of both sorrow and hope, and a blueprint for deeper thinking about the things that matter most. . . . I will be reflecting on Proverbs of Ashes for many months tocome." --Rosemary Bray McNatt, UU World "This book will anger some Christians and make others feel vindicated. . . . Parker and Brock unveil their own deep pain and suffering to build the book"s backbone. They blend selfdisclosure with serious theology to underscoretheir outlook."--Cecil S. Holmes, Cleveland Plain Dealer "Provocative. . . . The authors weave theological reflections with deeply moving personal accounts of abuse and trauma, including their own experiences." --The Other Side "[Readers] cannot help but be swayed by the book"s searing passion and profoundly literary style (a remarkable achievement in a coauthored work). Brock and Parker have thrown down a gauntlet that cannot be ignored."--Publishers Weekly Rita Nakashima Brock is a research associate at the Harvard Divinity School, and author of Journeys by Heart: A Christology of Erotic Power. Rebecca Ann Parker, president of Starr King School for theMinistry at Graduate Theological Union, is an ordained United Methodist minister in dual fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association.
