The need for reconciliation and the significance of renewal are fundamental aspects of a person's life, and they are also essential to Christian faith. In the Christian tradition in the West the concept of reconciliation has been extensively discussed, whereas the Eastern church has put more emphasis on deification (Greek: thesis), in this book called transformation. By combining these two concepts, this book seeks to bring together the Western and Eastern traditions of Christianity and thereby contribute to a deeper understanding of reconciliation and transformation. The book also addresses several issues that often surface in Jewish-Christian dialogue, such as the role that cross theologies have played in the anti-Jewish Christian discourse.

Recensioner i media

""It is with great joy that I learn that Jesper Svartvik's liberating knowledge once again will be shared with the English-speaking world. His deep knowledge in the Bible and Jewish life, as well as his understanding of early Jewish-Christian relations, offer us the possibility to liberate the cross of Jesus from violence, and ourselves from inherited misconceptions about those of the people of God with whom we share the larger part of the Bible.""
--K. G. Hammar, Archbishop emeritus, Church of Sweden

""Jesper Svartvik's lucid and original unpacking of sacred yet troubling texts opens the way to new understandings, a deeper faith, and an urgently needed mutuality within and among religions: reconciliation and transformation indeed! An essential and timely book.""
--James Carroll, author of The Truth at the Heart of the Lie

""This stimulating, creative work leads skillfully through a maze of topics relating to Jesus' death and its meaning. Sacrifice as the Bible really shows it, Judaism and Christianity as compatibly different experiences of God's covenantal love, and lessons about violence from Black theology are just three refractions to emerge from this gem. It is a great read on its own and will also be a powerful teaching text.""
--Peter A. Pettit, Teaching Pastor, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport, Iowa

""In this profound and beautiful book, Jesper Svartvik shows that conceiving of Jesus' crucifixion as a substitutionary atonement for human sin is based on mistaken (ultimately anti-Jewish) ideas about the ancient temple sacrifices. Masterfully drawing on the understanding that it is God who is at work in worship rituals, African American theologies of the cross, and the Eastern Christian stress on theosis, he offers a reconciling and transformative soteriology in which God is making everything new.""
--Philip A. Cunningham, Director, Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations
