“In a bold and daring articulation, Brian Zahnd has sketched a ‘Theology of the Cross’ for our time and place in the United States of the twenty-first century. He does so in a way that deeply resonates with the primal claims of evangelical theology. He sees that the Gospel is inherently and inescapably countercultural because the God of the Gospel is in particular and passionate solidarity with the ‘left behind.'”

  • Walter Brueggemann
