Item description for In the Shadow of the Cross: The Seven Last Words of Jesus (More Resources to Enrich Your Lenten Journey) by Stephen C. Rowan & Stephen Rowan...
Overview The mystery of the cross, which always includes the resurrection, lies at the heart of Christian belief and life. Each of us is touched by this mystery; each of us knows what it means to have human limitations. The choice we have, then, is whether we will confirm both for our lives and our deaths to the pattern of Jesus Christ. In the Shadow of the Cross: The Seven Last Words of Jesus plumbs the mystery of the cross while applying it to contempory life in fresh ways. According to the gospel writers, Jesus spoke seven times from the cross. Taken in the order in which they have been traditionally arranged, these phases show seven facets of the mystery of the cross. They throw light on human experience and provoke reflection and repentance. Each chapter focuses on one of these "words," and offers a prayer and questions for personal reflection that help unfold their meaning. Additional questions at the end of the book are suitable for group discussion. In the Shadow of the Cross: The Seven Last Words of Jesus is excellent, thought-provoking reading for the lenten season and for all year 'round.
