|Summary:|| In an epic constructive investigation, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God addresses the tension between Scripture's violent depictions of God and the non-violent, self-sacrificial God that was supremely revealed on the cross. Over two volumes, author Gregory A. Boyd develops a theological interpretation of Scripture that he labels a "cruciform hermeneutic," and he argues that this cruciform way of reading Scripture reframes its violent divine portraits in a way that subverts their violence and that discloses how they bear witness to the revelation of God's non-violent love in the crucified Christ.
