When Christians say, “Jesus died on the cross for your sins,” what does that mean?
American Gospel: Christ Crucified explores the divide between conservative and progressive Christians as they debate the meaning of the cross of Jesus Christ, answering some of the Bible’s most difficult questions: What is the God of the Bible like? Can a loving God also express wrath or anger? Is the God of the old testament the same as the God of the new testament? Why is hell necessary? If the God of the Bible has never offended you, we invite you to follow this deconstruction and reconstruction of the Christian faith, and decide for yourself whether the god you believe is the God of scripture, or a god of your own imagination.
