The Father's Will

Christ's Crucifixion and the Goodness of God

Nicholas E. Lombardo

  • An interdisciplinary study of a central Christian doctrine, drawing on methodologies from philosophy, biblical studies, and theology.
  • Offers a provocative rehabilitation of the devil's ransom interpretation of the crucifixion, an approach to redemption common among patristic authors but widely dismissed today
  • Clearly written and ordered, of relevance to those studying Christology, Soteriology, or Theology of Redemption
  • Of wide ecumenical interest to Christians of all denominations
