Publisher's Summary

Renowned pastor-theologian Gregory A. Boyd tackles the Bible's biggest dilemma.
The Old Testament God of wrath and violence versus the New Testament God of love and peace - it's a difference that has troubled Christians since the first century. Now, with the sensitivity of a pastor and the intellect of a theologian, Gregory A. Boyd proposes the "cruciform hermeneutic", a way to read the Old Testament portraits of God through the lens of Jesus' crucifixion.
In Cross Vision, Boyd follows up on his epic and groundbreaking study, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God. He shows how the death and resurrection of Jesus reframes the troubling violence of the Old Testament, how all of Scripture reveals God's self-sacrificial love, and, most importantly, how we can follow Jesus' example of peace.

Faith changer!

When you’re 48 years old and been a Christian for over 30 years you think you’re pretty set on how you view Christ and your faith. Boyd’s book not only challenged some of my misconceptions about God, he blew them out of the water! (In a really good way!) My faith in Christ feels more solid and freeing than ever! I️ truly consider Boyd to be one of the most profound teaching Theologians of our century. Thank you Greg for all your time and research you have clearly invested in this book over the last 10 years! To Christ be the glory!

incredibly thought provoking and bias challenging

very very great content. concepts that will grow your biblical understanding forever.
the overall conclusion on God's part in pain I think is a little out there; but I still have a lot of respect for the message and goal.
