Where is God present in the world? What hope does the church offer to folks who are struggling with death and despair in their many forms, from broken relationships to lost jobs to the seeming lack of meaning in our late-modern context? Andrew Root asks the church to open its eyes to the suffering and hopelessness of the world, to identify with and embrace it, because it is precisely in the world's suffering that God is found. Using Luther's theology of the cross as a lens, Root shows how the church's willingness to become weak for the world's sake results in a refocusing of Christian living and ministry, which he examines through the categories of discipleship, authentic hope, community, justice, and resurrection.
