In their 2001 Beacon Press book, Proverbs of Ashes: Violence, Redemptive Suffering, and the Search for What Saves Us, theologians Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker explore the harmful impacts of Christian ideas that human beings are “saved” through their own suffering or vicariously through Jesus’s suffering and death on the cross. Parker and Brock offer an alternative view grounded in their own courageous and generously-shared experiences of finding a saving love in the midst of experiences of violence and suffering.
