Introduction to the Problem of Human Suffering in historical context
Rationale for Looking to the Holy Week Liturgies as a Source of theological construction in response to suffering
Reflection on the Cultural of Modernity and Its Valorization of Progress
Proposal that Metz's search for a counter-modern theology might be best pursued through reflection on the Triduum liturgies
Review of the development of early Christian celebration of Easter and the gradual development of the Triduum
Rationale for treating the three liturgies together, in their inter-relationship, as the center of the Christian year, which is crucial to developing a theology that does not reproduce modernist triumphalism

This concluding chapter is along the lines of Gordon Lathrop's "pastoral liturgical theology."
