Hanging by a Thread: The Challenge of the Cross [9781848259072]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Hanging by a Thread revisits the harrowing story at the very heart of Christianity. Samuel Wells considers the risk, cost and suffering of the cross in the light of six key contemporary concerns: the reliability of history, the fragility of trust, the fact of mortality, the search for meaning, the nature of power, and the character of love. Recognizing that the cross leaves our easy assumptions and tidy answers by a thread, he paints a picture of a God who, despite danger and disgrace, regardless of how much we deny and reject, gives everything to be with us. This is a profound, moving and inspiring vision of the central event of the Christian faith.


AUTHOR: Samuel Wells is Vicar of St Martin in the Fields and the author of numerous books, including What Anglicans Believe and Learning to Dream Again. He is a frequent broadcaster on BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day slot where his thoughtful reflections have earned him a reputation as a national Christian voice.
