Description

A discussion of Luther's 'Theologia Crucis' (Theology of the Cross). In the image of the cross, the world perceives shame, weakness, folly, condemnation, sin and death. Victor Shepherd contrasts the world's perceptions of the cross with the truth revealed as the consummate event of God's glory, strength, wisdom, acquittal, righteousness and life. He distinguishes 'theologia crucis' from a 'theologia gloriae', and elaborates the implications of a 'theologia crucis'.
