Only The Suffering God Can Help

“God lets himself be pushed out of the world on to the cross.  He is weak and powerless in the world, and that is precisely the way, the only way, in which he is with us and helps us. . . . Only the suffering God can help. . . . the God of the Bible, who wins power and space in the world by his weakness.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
