Over the past hundred years Anglican thought has questioned the traditional doctrine of God's impassibility. The cross of Christ reveals an eternal suffering in God. But how can a suffering God be a source of hope? It can be argued that God, in the very act of creation, renounced any impassibility God may have enjoyed. It is only a suffering God who can stand in relation to a created other and who can therefore hold out hope to creation.
