Christian commitment and Christian theology both are tempted by complacence. Yet, Dirk Lange asserts, both are brought up short by keen awareness of the traumatic events that liturgy recalls and that theology seeks to explicate. Recalling Martin Luthers great demurrals about a theology of glory, Lange reminds us that Christianity begins with exposure to the primal traumathe crossat the core of the Christian story.
