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.

Such an important book for those raised to believe that God used to be violent

This book is truly eye-opening, it will bless many people. The indisputable scriptural fact is that the Father, is just like Jesus, who is the perfect image of his Father. Once you meditate on this fact, it will change your theology forever. It is a universe of difference to believe in a God like Jesus, versus believing in a violent God; on the basis of wrongly understanding the Old Testament depictions.
