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


This was recommended by the TwoFeministsAnnotateThrBible podcast. It’s an encyclopedic treatment of the theology of the crucifixion. I picked it up because I never really understood it. I have a much clearer understanding now but I can’t say I really, really get it. It was slow going. And it was useful to have a Bible handy. I think the intended audience is clergy and well read lay people. That doesn’t include me. But all that said, I really recommend it if you’re interested. Her explanations are really clear, it’s well-written and it’s very well organized. She’s an Episcopal priest, one of the first women to be ordained.
