How should Anabaptists, Mennonites and other Christians think today about the saving work of God in Jesus' life, ministry, death, and resurrection? In this volume, 20 leading theologians, biblical scholars, historians of Anabaptism, pastors, and peacemaking practitioners offer their reflections. In addition, while engaging the thought of J. Denny Weaver, they ponder such questions as these and more: Should Jesus' atoning work be viewed as a sacrifice? Or is it better viewed through "narrative Christus Victor"--as a defeat of the powers of sin and death? The book "makes a significant contribution to vigorous scholarly discussions about the nonviolent reconciling ministry of Jesus and the church's responsibility to preach peace in all of the contexts of a twenty-first century global society," says Kim S. Phipps, President, Messiah College. And John D. Roth, prolific author and speaker on Mennonite topics and Professor of History, Goshen College, says this: "Diverse in their approach and argument, the essays gathered in this collection nonetheless sparkle with theological insights that are certain to inspire, challenge and provoke."
