The Suffering of Love: Christ's Descent Into the Hell of Human Hopelessness

Cover
Ignatius Press, 2007 - 254 Seiten
The Suffering of Love is an answer to the question that has haunted so many anguished souls of our century. Where was God during the horror of the Holocaust? In a compelling blend of theology and literature, meditation and analysis, the author maintains that between the experience of Christs own abandonment on the Cross, the hellish desolation of Holy Saturday, and the strangled cry of human suffering, there exists the most profound kinship possible.
