"This should be a useful book for Christians struggling to reconcile JesusÂ' sacrifice and a loving God with the place of punishment and the necessity for justice."--Publishers Weekly, Religion Bookline, June 30, 2010

Caputo, Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion and Humanities and Professor of Philosophy, Syracuse University
