Christ's Crucifixion and the Goodness of God

The night before his crucifixion, Jesus asks his Father to take away the cup of his suffering, but then says, "not my will, but yours, be done." Shortly afterward, Judas arrives, and his arrival reveals something important about the Father's will. Yet much remains obscure. The sheer fact of Christ's crucifixion shows only that God was not willing to spare his Son. It does not shed any light on the positive content of the Father's will. Drawing on philosophical
analysis and historical-critical exegesis, The Father's Will sets out to clarify the Father's will for Christ and how it relates to his death on the cross. Since Christians look to the crucifixion to make
sense of their suffering, this book addresses many existential questions; it also touches on the place of God the Father in Christian theology and culture. It would be of wide interest to Christians of all denominations.
