"Like the gospel writers and Paul, Sharon Delgado cannot speak of the cross or its way without calling by name the powers of domination that wield it. The Cross in the Midst of Creation explicates the freedom of the resurrection in resistance and transformation, and so in hope." --Bill Wylie-Kellermann, author of Principalities in Particular

"This book is a powerful guide to the actual, difficult, beautiful, and empowering gospel story, and a bridge back to a real faith for those with the courage to follow." --Bill McKibben, author of The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon

"With translucent prose, provocative storytelling, and trustworthy biblical scholarship, Sharon Delgado restores to Christians the cross of our salvation in the era of climate's uncreation." --Rose Marie Berger, Sojourners magazine

"Delgado's literate and readable study . . . offers a contextual, liberationist, and intersectional approach that restores the cross to the center of the Christian story--and the church's engagement in peacemaking, racial-social equity, and reparative justice work today." --Ched Myers, coauthor of Healing Haunted Histories
