Fr. Lombardo Publishes Book on the Crucifixion

Fr. Lombardo’s book, The Father’s Will: Christ’s Crucifixion and the Goodness of God, was published last week by Oxford University Press. Drawing on philosophical analysis and historical-critical exegesis, The Father’s Will sets out to clarify the Father’s will for Christ and how it relates to his death on the cross. Then, after considering the theologies of Anselm and Peter Abelard, it argues for the recovery of the early Christian category of ransom.
