Greg Boyd has written three books about how to understand the violence of God, and is having a conference about it. I have read the books and am attending the conference. Here are the questions I hope to get answered.
Having read both Cross Vision and the longer 2-volume work, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God, I think that this shorter book should be the one you start with. Then, if you want more details, footnotes, and scholarly discussion, you can get the longer two-volume explanation.
Greg Boyd is coming out with a new book tomorrow called Cross Vision. I asked him a few questions about this book, his life, his theology, and the central theological truth that he is most passionate about teaching to others.
The new books by Greg Boyd, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God, is a great book. Please read it! But just know that despite all the great insights in the book, I believe that the central thesis is wrong. Rather than withdraw from sin, God dives in.
