Foreword by Willard Swartley?We considered him stricken by God, but . . .'? Did God really pour out his wrath against sin on his Son to satisfy his own need for justice? Or did God-in-Christ forgive the world even as it unleashed its wrath against him? Was Christ?'s sacrifice the ultimate fulfillment of God?'s demand for redemptive bloodshed? Or was the cross God?'s great ?No? to that whole system? This distinctively panoramic volume offers fresh perspectives on these and other difficult questions reemerging throughout the church today.Contributors: James Alison Kharalambos Anstall Mark D.
