"In Cross-Shattered Christ, Stanley Hauerwas offers a close reading of each of Christ's last sayings. This small volume is theologically rich, yet full of humility - meditative, but never "preachy." In true Hauerwasian fashion, the discussion opens our ears to the language of scripture while opening our hearts to a clearer vision of God." "Resisting the temptation to read Christ's words solely through the lens of our own need, Hauerwas avoids taming "the wildness of the God we worship." In original and surprising ways, he touches on subjects such as Mary, the incarnation, and our need to be remembered by Jesus, uncovering what he calls the sheer "differentness" of God."--BOOK JACKET.
