Abstract:

"Reid discusses five distinct ways of understanding Jesus' death, and shows that each holds the potential to bring life and connection as well as the potential for oppression and harm. She moves from the biblical text to the lived experience of women in cultures where the cross has been central to the way suffering and death have been understood. A model of feminist and liberationist biblical interpretation, Taking Up the Cross reads alongside women for whom the cross of Jesus has indeed been a matter of life and death."--Jacket.
