Item description for Stations of the Cross According to Saint Paul by SS Ronald D. Witherup...
Overview A set of images, readings, reflections and prayers in the context of St. Paul to assist contemporary believers in reflecting on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
Publishers Description Inspired by Pope Benedict XVI's declaration of the year of St. Paul, Ronald Witherup has written a devotional book that will assist contemporary readers in reflecting on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus in the context of St. Paul. Because of Paul's intense understanding of the cross of Jesus Christ, those who open themselves up to the work of the Holy Spirit, this exercise will lead readers both to spiritual richness and to a worthy reflection on certain parts of Paul's letters that help us comprehend the power of the cross. The author shows readers the way in a concise, elegant manner, to a more multi-faceted application of Scripture than they may have experienced. His unique combination of images, scriptural quotations, prayers, and reflections will help them to experience the joy of this ancient prayer tradition and, in the process, rediscover a side of St. Paul the Apostle that they may have forgotten or have never known.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stations of the Cross According to Saint Paul?
A good guide for Lent Mar 29, 2010
I've purchased several of these now for family and friends. It is an attractive little volume--I appreciate having images of the Passion by important artists to reflect on while I read. The text is short and simple: Bible verses from the letters of Paul, followed by a brief reflection. The reflections are thoughtful and serious and address the meaning of each station. It's been a good spiritual aid for Lent. I would recommend it to Catholics and Protestants (of which I am one) alike.
