We often hear about the Seven Last Words of Christ. Rarely, though, do we focus in the same way on what Christ said after the Resurrection as he surprised, consoled, rebuked, and inspired his followers through seven powerful encounters what Shane Stanford calls the Seven "Next" Words of Christ.
In a warm and intimate way the author uses stories from his own life and experience to make the continuing power of Christ more real and accessible to any earnest believer. -J. Ellsworth Kalas, author of "Parables from the Back Side"

The Seven Next Words of Christ Sep 23, 2007
To found this book to be exceptional and encouraging. I read it after the Easter season and it continues to help me keep that glorious miracle in my thoughts. Some artist at my church created scenes from the seven last sayings of Christ from the cross and so this book seemed to be a good thing to follow those inspiring works of art. Shane Stanford is truly a talented writer and can help anyone that is looking for hope through the resurrection story. Martha Beadle
