Jesus' lonely cry on the cross—"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"—has bewildered Christians for centuries. Does this mean the Trinity was broken at Calvary? Or worse, did God kill his own Son? Tackling tough topics ranging from determinism to divine wrath, Thomas McCall denounces contemporary theologies that pit God against God in favor of solidly biblical and Trinitarian views of the Atonement. As a collection of systematic theology essays, the book doesn't dazzle, but its brevity, clarity, and balanced perspective make Forsaken worth reading.—Jeff Haanen
