Notes
"Western theology inherited the theory that human beings possess at birth a guilt for a crime committed by their first parents. This theory invites the notion that Christ's suffering and death involved an inevitable punishment for human sins. Without criticizing the theory derived from Augustine, Anselm of Canterbury provided an important alternative substituting the notions of debt, obligation, and satisfaction for crime, guilt and punishment. .... In retrieving Anselm's model of debt, obligation, and satisfaction, Richard Hooker provided an Anglican alternative to the model of guilt and punishment that should not be neglected by contemporary Anglicans". -- Abstract, p. 197.
"The violence of the passion of Christ has recently been revisited on us in two highly successful films, both claiming fidelity to scriptural text and ethos, and both inviting some Christian teachers to reassert an account of the atonement that has been somewhat in eclipse in most Anglican circles: Christ had to suffer thus horribly in order to endure the punishment that the human race deserves and that God insists upon as a condition of the salvation of human beings (p. 197)". "Hooker, and through him, Anselm, also offers us an alternative to the currently stylish relishing of the brutal treatment of Jesus in popular entertainments and Christian teaching. It is not necessary to hold that either the human condition or the gracious saving God required Christ to suffer cruelty as divine punishment. This is neither essential Christian doctrine, not received Anglican theology" (p. 213).
Author is Dean of the Faculty of Divinity, Trinity College, University of Toronto.

Notes
"When, on [Good] Friday at the cross, the centurion gasps, 'Truly this man was God's Son,' he is not only telling us what his heart says about Jesus. He is also telling us what his heart says about spiritual authority in Jerusalem, a city in crisis, contested by two divine figures". "Two claims to divine spiritual authority were made that [Palm] Sunday. One, the claim of Caesar, is represented by the Roman governor, Pilate, and the Roman army. The other, the claim of Yahweh, is embodied by a Galilean rabbi and his followers." "As we look at the world through Easter eyes, we begin to notice that the choices before us are not simply a matter of comfort, preference of personal well-being. They are choices in the midst of a spiritual crisis. Gods who do not call themselves gods lay claim to spiritual authority, demand our obedient fear. 'Just the way things are' is one of their names, along with 'let's get real here' and 'you have to look out for number one'. They talk tough and move fast and look strong and seem to prevail, as Caesar seemed to prevail in the execution of Jesus. But there is always a centurion, who comes into the story with invincible Lord Caesar but leaves with broken Lord Jesus".

"[By] Herbert O'Driscoll".
"I would examine the scripture passages that apply to the specific hours during which our Lord shared a meal with his disciples, was taken by his enemies, endured the horror of crucifixion, died, and moved beyond death to be present with his disciples. .... Having read and reflected on each incident during the four days, I have attempted to do two things: first, to tell the event as vividly as I could, while trying to remain true to the scripture; second, to reflect on some aspect of the endless depths of meaning hidden in the scripture. In doing this, I have had in mind a general readership, for whom this book might serve as a series of short devotional readings. I have also considered those clergy and lay readers who are responsible for preaching homilies, as well as those who lead Bible study groups". -- Preface.

Image showing large sculpture of Jesus' first fall on the Way of the Cross at top of page with inset paragraph below and text: "Jesus Falls. Tradition says the condemned Jesus fell three times on Jerusalem's Via Dolorosa as, flogged, he carried his cross along the 'Way of Suffering' to his crucifixion. Some link Jesus' falling to humankind's fall with Adam and Eve. The above depicts Jesus' first fall on the path from Jerusalem to Calvary. A feature in our May [2014] issue will highlight the holy city of Jerusalem". [Text of entire article.]

Archbishop of Canterbury's "Lent Book for 2008". -- Acknowledgements.
"This book is the fruit of a long absorption in the riches of the Christian tradition, East and West, and its subject matter is nothing less than the great central theme of redemption, treated with a fullness of classical theological sensitivity. But it also represents that lifetime of listening to and loving the heritage of Russia in particular -- the great twentieth century testimonies to hope and human dignity out of the heart of terrible suffering. Writers like Pasternak and Solzhenitsyn show, without any evasion or sentimentality, how the beauty of the human face can show itself in the most apparently inhuman of places". -- Foreword.
The author "guides us on a journey of readings and questions that begins with the garden of Eden and brings us at last to the Tree of Life in the New Jerusalem. In each chapter, you'll find an essay that explores one aspect of the story of God's love for humankind. Using biblical passages, pictures by Rembrandt, and masterpieces of Russian literature, the author inspires and uplifts us. As we move from one milestone to the next, our future is stripped of death's fear, and the greatest gift on earth is bestowed on us. Linking the chapters with metaphors of wood, trees and the cross of Christ, this book helps us fully embrace the passion of Christ and its transforming power as life conquers death". -- back cover.

Notes
A meditation by the now retired bishop of Manicaland, Zimbabwe. A reflection on Mark chapter 15, verses 9-14, the persecution and suffering of Christ because he was not one of the powerful and threatened them with his love for the poor and powerless. "As we know the same violence that nailed Jesus to the cross in still prevalent in our world even today. It has many forms and can be physical as well as verbal .... HIV and AIDS is claiming lots of lives in Zimbabwe today. Should anyone be stoned to death because of helping the infected or affected, for instance the orphans ? Should anyone be harassed or beaten up because she/he has offered food to a hungry family ? Indeed we have heard voices saying time and again: Do not love or care for them because they are not 'one of us'. Whenever an act of violence is committed, the perpetrators appear to be victorious. But history has shown us again and again that perpetrators of violence always become the losers in the end. Jesus appeared to be a victim but today we celebrate his victory of the resurrection ...".

Seen in their true mythological and symbolical meaning, the stories in the drama of Jesus' life come alive in a totally fresh way -- not as the account of a single, distant god-man working strange miracles, like Superman or some other fictional magician, but as a description of the evolution of the soul in every one of us." -- inside front dust jacket blurb.
