being sufficiently radical

Christians who do not have the feeling that they must flee the crucified Christ have probably not yet understood him in a sufficiently radical way… More radical Christian faith can only mean committing oneself without reserve to the “crucified God.” It does not promise the confirmation of one’s own conceptions, hopes and good fundamental change. It offers no recipe for success. But it brings a confrontation with the truth.

– Jürgen Moltmann, The Crucified God
