Taking the Lord’s name in vain
MetadataShow full item record
In his paper, Graham Monteith explores some of the social boundaries, or cultural limits, of language – an investigation, that is, of the liminal area of speech which issues from pain or anger, and is expressed in swearing and expletives. He draws on more recent literature to offer a reflection on Jesus’ suffering on the cross in the darkest moments of pain and utter desperation. He concludes with a message of hope in the continuing love of God.
