The Personal Touch
"The message of the cross is an ugly message of suffering, a controversial message of cosmic disruption, and a dangerous message of political and social revolution. And there is nothing that can, or should, be done by preachers to sanitise or beautify the shock, the horror, the ‘scandal’ as Paul puts it, of the word of the cross."
A sermon given at 'Provoking Faith in a time of isolation', a gathering of Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 10 May 2020.
