Theology of the cross

Readers find food for thought in March articles

The two related articles on the theology of the cross by Douglas John Hall (March, page 12) are some of the best stuff you've published. Martin Luther's thinking regarding the theology of the cross is Christian theology at its most daunting and profound level ... a level not readily understood or accepted by many Christians, Lutheran or otherwise. Unfortunately our culture, religious as well as secular, shapes our thinking in ways that run counter to it. One would hope these articles are read and discussed in the adult education programs of our ELCA congregations.
