This expression of Luthers theology of the cross, Anthony asserts, provides both a fuller elaboration and an important and creative corrective with reference to recent signal expressions of the theology of the cross.

As contemporary theologians of the cross have articulated (most notably Douglas John Hall and the late Alan E. Lewis), the theology of the cross, through a transformation of the divine attributes that honors the integrity of created beings, is preeminently a theology of redemption from within (within-redemption). In the process of outlining and analyzing these theologies of within-redemption, Anthony exposes an impasse created by these theologies regarding the relationship of within-redemption to individual human narratives.

It is through Luthers radical interpretation of the two natures of Christ, Anthony contends, that complete within-redemption can be expressed. Anthony also evaluates the Christology of Karl Barth from the perspective of his findings. Not only is Anthonys work an innovative and fresh application of Luthers Christology for contemporary discussions of the theology of the cross, but it places Luthers Christology at the cutting edge of contemporary discussions regarding the theology of the cross and its within-redemption. Endorsements: In this incisive and creative study, Anthony explores Luthers, Halls, and Lewiss theologies of the cross and argues convincingly that Luthers incarnational focus and affirmation of the third mode enable contemporary theologians of the cross to offer the world a powerful theology of hope that both takes seriously the totality and particularity of human experience and celebrates the ongoing nature of Gods within redemption.

--Kurt K. Hendel Bernard, Fischer, Westberg Distinguished Ministry Professor of Reformation History Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago Any theologian who is willing to pay attention to Martin Luther on Christs Presence is by necessity exciting. Especially when that theologian takes seriously the ubiquitous presence of the crucified Christ to his sinners that concerns not Christs presence to us, but ours to Him.

Neal Anthonys theological exploration is indeed exciting. Read freely. --Steven D. Paulson Professor of Systematic Theology Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota Knowledgeable when it comes to Luther, Barth, and other significant theologians- creative when it comes to traditional topics of Christian doctrine- faithful when it comes to the relevance of research and teaching for ministry- challenging when it comes to the readers own reflection. --Antje Jackelen Bishop of Lund Church of Sweden About the Contributor(s): Neal J. Anthony, an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, currently serves in Nebraska.

He received his PhD in theology at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago in 2008 and has taught at Midland Lutheran College.
