The ReKnew Cross Vision Conference is Coming!

Since its release in mid-April, Crucifixion of the Warrior God has helped a multitude of people fully embrace for the first time the beautiful God revealed in Jesus’ cross-centered life and ministry. It has helped many others regain their confidence in the Bible as “God’s inspired word,” despite its many ugly, violent depictions of God. We fully expect that this will be even more true when Cross Vision, which is the much shorter lay version of Crucifixion of the Warrior God, is released in mid-August.

At the same time, both books raise a host of important questions and objections that need to be addressed. For example, can a non-violent interpretation of the Bible be consistently maintained? Is it true that God punishes people by withdrawing from them? Can contemporary people be asked to take Satan and demons seriously? What implications does the cross-centered interpretation of Scripture have for how we teach the Bible to children and to teenagers? What implications does this paradigm have for how we engage with people of other faiths or for how we apply the Bible to social justice issues today?

Beyond summarizing the case for a cross-centered interpretation of the Bible, the Cross Vision conference (September 21-23) will address these and an assortment of other issues. Joining Greg to provide teachings and lead discussions on a variety of topics will be:

Rachel Held Evans

In a paper delivered at the Evangelical Theological Society in November, Paul Copan spent a good amount of time arguing that aspects of the NT conflict with the understanding of love that I espouse in Crucifixion of the Warrior God (CWG).
