Any tricks to soften really hard stale bread?

I'm trying a recipe that requires cubed stale bread, but it's too hard to cut! I already tried wrapping it in a damp towel and microwaving it, but that only softens the crust.

Thanks, I did that and then put it in the oven for ~10 minutes and it did the trick! (I do have a serrated knife, but not of great quality, so even my boyfriend wasn't able to do much with it.)
