Heart of the Cross

A Postcolonial Christology
  • By Wonhee Anne Joh
Product Description
Theologies have often pointed to the cross as a place of suffering and sacrifice, while feminist critiques have frequently argued against interpretations of the cross as patriarchal valorizing of suffering. W. Anne Joh points toward a new interpretation of the cross as a place of love, where God and humanity come together in a surprising way. She interprets the cross as performing a double gesture that has a subversive effect. The cross works simultaneously to pay homage to and menace complex oppressive powers. The cross as a double gesture speaks to those who have shifted from a typical politics of identity to political identities shaped more by postmodern ambiguities of difference. Utilizing the Korean concept of jeong (a notion that helps clarify how the double gesture of the cross inspires a new relationality), Joh constructs a theology that is feminist, political and love-centered, while acknowledging the cross as source of pain and suffering.
