Item description for The Characters of the Crucifixion by Joseph Fichtner & Mary Charles McGough...

Overview
Fichtner offers a striking retelling of the passion narrative that enables anyone to participate in the crucifixion today as a Peter, Mary Magdalene or Mary, Mother of Jesus, not only in suffering but also in the triumph. He vividly retells 38 of Jesus' stories by characterizing 15 people who are somehow involved in the crucifixion of Christ. Each presentation concludes with a reflection-prayer which updates the event of the crucifixion and shows its personal and social implications.

Publishers Description

Fr. Fichtner offers a striking retelling of the passion narrative that enables anyone to participate in the crucifixion today as a Peter; Mary Magdalene; John, Son of Zebedee; or Mary, Mother of Jesus - not only in the suffering but also in the triumph. He vividly retells thirty-eight of Jesus' stories by characterizing fifteen people who are somehow, for better or worse, involved in the crucifixion of Christ. The characterizations are drawn from the gospel sources of the Passion narrative and described in the historical present tense to be applicable today. Each presentation concludes with a reflection-prayer that updates the event of the crucifixion and shows its personal and social implications.

Adults or teens participating in passion plays will appreciate the insights Fr. Fichtner offers into these characters. For those seeking a lenten reflection, this look at human life at the start of the first millennium helps us reflect on our own lives at the start of the third.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Characters of the Crucifixion?

Reincarnation Proved  Jun 11, 2007
Father Fichtner's insightful consideration of the motives behind the actions of participants in and witnesses to the crucifixion instills life in long-dead characters. His description of time and place puts flesh on major and minor actors alike, creating an understanding of ourselves, of humankind's capacity for bravery, knavery and love.
