Book Review: Cross Theology: The Classical Theologia Crucis and Karl Barth’s Modern Theology of the Cross

The Journal of Theological Studies has published the online edition of my review of Cross Theology: The Classical Theologia Crucis and Karl Barth’s Modern Theology of the Cross by Rosalene Bradbury. (The print version may also be out by now.)

Bradbury attempts to offer a coherent definition of just what “theology of the cross” is, including both epistemological and soteriological dimensions. She then traces both of these through the thought of Martin Luther (who she argues did not invent theologica crucis as a method but picked it up as a minority report in the tradition) and Karl Barth.
