Quote of the Day: Absorption of Violence

Click to Order

The current essay, which I will post on next week, has a theme running through it which I am unaware – but find palatable.

Thought this quote might sum it up –

“…sin-caused violence is intercepted by Jesus Christ. Shalom is the result, but its purchased price is the total self-giving of the deity, the absorption of violence.” (p43)

Martens is making the point that we are to absorb violence as Christians.

I haven’t read this review, but you might. (I don’t want other reviews to cloud my reading).
