The De-Centering of the Cross

Greg Gilbert:

It’s amazing to me how willing many evangelicals are to excuse both those moves—the move to de-center the cross and the move to make it something other than penal and substitutionary. It’s just a thought, but I wonder if the impulse to do (and to excuse) those things might come from the bare fact that the world just doesn’t like the cross as it’s presented in Scripture. At best they think it’s a ridiculous fairy tale, and at worst a monstrous lie.
