The Execution of God


"This is in-your-face, aggressive theology at its best. It's grimy, gritty, and has no trouble holding its audience's feet to the fire." ― Foreword Reviews

We kill. We kill each other. We kill God. The altar of the death chamber is open, the hour of execution upon us. Is there salvation amidst the horror of the death penalty? We must save to get saved. We must save our God. How will we encounter the execution of God? Will we save or will we kill?

In this stunning fusion of biblical interpretation and memoir, radical theologian of mercy Jeff Hood takes us on a spiritual journey like no other―through Death Row and Sunday school classes, into chaotic streets choked in protest and ritualized execution chambers. The Execution of God is a powerful invitation to encounter God in the last place we expect divinity to dwell…on the execution gurney. MORE...

We kill. We kill each other. We kill God. The altar of the death chamber is open, the hour of execution upon us. Is there salvation amidst the horror of the death penalty? We must save to get saved. We must save our God. How will we encounter the execution of God? Will we save or will we kill?

In this stunning fusion of biblical interpretation and memoir, radical theologian of mercy Jeff Hood takes us on a spiritual journey like no other―through Death Row and Sunday school classes, into chaotic streets choked in protest and ritualized execution chambers. The Execution of God is a powerful invitation to encounter God in the last place we expect divinity to dwell…on the execution gurney.

The Execution of God will invite you to re-examine your belief in the ultimate punishment and consider:
  • How the death penalty kills our relationship with God
  • The idea that the divine image of God dwells in those on death row
  • How we cannot be both people of love and people of murder
  • How our cultural obsession with violence harms our spiritual life
  • How to stop the killing and join the work of abolition and restoration
