              Construing the Cross

              This book reconsiders ways in which the cross of Christ was construed before atonement theories narrowed the categories. The typology of Passover is explored as probably the very first way in which Christians came to understand the passion. The use of sacrificial imagery is re-ex...amined. The significance of identifying the cross with the Tree of Life is traced across the centuries into medieval times, along with other surprising links with the Eden narrative. The validity of seeking imaginative insights to grasp what the cross signifies is given theological consideration in a chapter that moves into literary and liturgical reflections and is punctuated with cruciform poems. The overall outcome is a quite paradoxical focus, not on death, but on life. This is an outstandingly lucid and imaginative reflection on the meaning and significance of the cross. Young ranges effortlessly from Scripture to the Fathers, from paintings to poetry, from social anthropology to preaching, and using metaphor and images, draws a picture that is more profound and more far-reaching than any of the constraining theories of the atonement. At once masterful and moving. --Kent Brower, Senior Research Fellow in Biblical Studies, Nazarene Theological College Wise, rich, surprising, this wonderful book opens familiar traditions anew, with profound vision. There is the ancient and the current, poetry and paradox, challenge and simplicity: there is life. Frances Young is an incomparable teacher. --Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Royce Family Professor of Teaching Excellence, Willard Prescott and Annie McClelland Smith Professor, Chair, Dept. of Religious Studies, Brown University Here one of the greatest living theologians further opens up one of her core themes. The combination of scholarship, imagination, lived experience and profound, daring thought is gripping and inspiring. Above all the cross shows the depths of life and of God together, and the result is a powerful prophetic wisdom for our times. --

              Focus on God (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Focus on God is a plea to do just that--focus on God. In recent years, many ministers and priests have lost confidence in the value of their work. Many have wondered whether the clergy still have a role in the life of the community. Here is an exciting picture of the minister as ...a resource person, able to communicate some of the riches of our theological heritage to the new generation of Christians and able to appropriate some of the rewards of scientific and cultural explorations for the nourishment of the life of the church. The minister is seen as the person who can bring together intellect and imagination to enable and interpret a continuing conversation between tradition and present experience. The task of the minister and priest involves, above all, attention to God, and the attempt to help others think about God for themselves. Frances Young lectures in theology at the University of Birmingham. Kenneth Wilson is principal of Westminster College. They are both Methodist ministers.
