Relational and relentless love of sinners

Shared some of the testimony of Wm Paul Young on the theology behind his two books, including the widely read The Shack. In Christianity Today online. He really roots his transformational concept of the Trinitarian God in the early church fathers, and believes this view of God really challenges and corrects the fundamentalist and evangelical views that are being tested and sometimes abandoned by Christians who are searching for truth and understanding.

He sees the cross as "God in the hands of angry sinners', which is not a new term but helpful in defining the purpose of the cross in condemning the flesh in its weakness and rebellion and affirming the victory of Christ in his humble substitution and submission that reveals a loving God, not an angry One. The Dance of redemptive love, the shepherd seeking to lost. It resonates with me.
