The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ, by Fleming Rutledge


After nearly three years, it is finished. I feasted on this book, devouring a lifetime of biblical and theological reflections on the work of Christ. I don’t always agree with Rutledge, but in substance and form (even her footnotes contain worlds of insight), she provoked me to praise. This is theological writing at its best, connecting the world of the Bible with our own modern reality in seamless fashion.
