The title of this book would not have been inviting to me except for a desire to understand the biblical concept of being crucified with Christ. Whether or not one is a fan of Lutheran or Reformation theology, understanding the personal struggle of this Augustinian monk from works to grace is uplifting. The author notes, “The increasing recognition of the shallowness and naivete of much Christian thinking about God and man has caused many to begin to retrace the steps taken by Luther before them, and to join him as he kneels at the foot of the cross, and adores the God who is ‘hidden in suffering.'”
The book is heavy in theological language and assuming of your knowledge of Latin. Nevertheless, it was a positive addition to personally understanding of the cross.
