Christ's final words from the cross - the seven sayings from the Gospels long pondered by Christians - are both familiar and strange. They are difficult words. As Stanley Hauerwas says, 'We are at once drawn to these words, yet we fear taking them in our hands.'
Ideal for Lenten meditation and devotion - but powerful for reading and contemplating any time of the year - Cross-Shattered Christ offers a transformative reading of Christ's words, a reading that goes directly to the heart of the gospel. It bids us 'come, draw near, fear not, and behold the mystery and the wonder of Jesus's cross.'
