THE KING AND HIS CROSS by Robert C. Dentan


Email this review


This is the Seabury Lenten Book for 1965, the current volume in this Episcopal series. The book deals with the Old Testament Lessons for Holy Week, interpreting these not as literal prophecies but as images and figures helpful to the Christian worshipper as he tries to understand the events of that week as narrated in the New Testament. The Humble Messianic King, The Divin Warrior, The Heart of the Eternal (the afflicted God), The Human Sufferer, The Stricken Shepherd, The Mediator of the New Covenant, The Son of God, The Persecuted Righteous Man, The Suffering Servant, and The Redeemer, are the types portrayed. Each chapter gives a full exposition of the Biblical material, which is followed by a section on the application to the reader's situation. This may be heavy reading for those unversed in Biblical study- but fruitful for those who are.
