Description:

In an emotionally gripping combination of memoir and theology, Rita Brock and Rebecca Parker show how emphasizing Christ's obedience to God and sacrifice on the cross sanctions violence and exacerbates its effects, blesses silence about the abuse of human beings, and hinders the process of recovery-giving the fullest and most powerful critique to date of the theology of atonement. Brock and Parker give witness to the legacies of violence in their own lives, and in the lives of those they have known, loved, and ministered to.
