The Naked Christ
An Atonement Model for a Body-Obsessed Culture
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"With astute sensitivity to a major theme in contemporary culture, often ignored by the church as too embarrassing to deal with, Dan Le brings original insights into the cross of Christ and the meaning of the atonement. A stimulating and enjoyable read, it provides further confirmation of the inexhaustible riches to be found in Christ's death."
--Derek Tidball, former principal, London School of Theology
"Is there anything new to say about the cross? Those who wonder should read this fascinating work, which offers new perspectives, not as alternatives for the old ones, but to complement and supplement them."
--Tony Lane, Professor of Historical Theology, London School of Theology
"The Naked Christ is not another study on the atonement; it is much more. Dan Le offers a new and original reinterpretation of atonement within the Christian tradition. This becomes metaphorical theology at its best. He has written a brilliant piece of work that is academically sound and relevant to the body-obsessed culture. Biblical themes and church tradition come alive in this comprehensive introduction to the metaphor of the naked Christ."
--David Rainey, Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow, Nazarene Theological College
