Excellent Apr 5, 2008
I love this book. It is the traditional stations that Caryll writes with depth of heart and spirit with insight only given and received in the power of our Helper, Holy Spirit. Highly recommended for the faithful follower of Christ.
Personal Mar 25, 2008
There is not a writing by Caryll Houselander that I have not appreciated. One of the best!
Great Insight Mar 13, 2006
This is a reprinting of an older version that was originally published in the 1950's. This author enjoyed great popularity for her spiritual writings in the 40's and 50's. I came across this one last year but only got around to reading it this year. It has an a meditation between 4 and 8 pages per station. It also has woodcut prints by the author at the beginning of each chapter. Also each chapter ends with a prayer composed to tie the meditation to our own lives. The meditations in this edition go much deeper than some of the others. The reflections lead to deep introspection.
Powerful Meditations on Christ's Passion Feb 26, 2004
This extraordinary book makes a superb complement to Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ.
Houselander was one of England's most popular spiritual writers in the mid-20th century. She was also one of the best, and this is arguably her finest work.
The book is based on the ancient devotional practice of praying The Stations of the Cross. The Stations are 14 incidents in Christ's Passion; for example, Christ is judged; Christ meets his mother while carrying His cross; Christ is stripped; Christ is nailed to the cross; Christ dies.
For each incident, Houselander provides a few pages of profound reflection and a short prayer. Her poignant writing is utterly devoid of sentimentality or flowery ornament. She plunges straight into each moment, showing us how we can walk the painful Way of the Cross with Jesus, and how He in fact walks with us at every moment of suffering in our lives.
Read this book to experience The Passion, to draw nearer to Him, and to recognize how He is still being spit upon, still being put into agony in every man, woman, and child who suffers.
