Product Description

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."

Publisher's Description

In Cross-Shattered Christ, theologian Stanley Hauerwas offers a moving reflection on Jesus's final words from the cross. This small and powerful volume is theologically poignant and steeped in humility. Hauerwas's pithy discussion opens our ears to the language of Scripture while opening our hearts to a truer vision of God. Touching in original and surprising ways on subjects such as praying the Psalms and our need to be remembered by Jesus, Hauerwas emphasizes Christ's humanity as well as the sheer "differentness" of God.

Ideal for personal devotion during Lent and throughout the year, Cross-Shattered Christ offers a transformative reading of Jesus's words that goes directly to the heart of the gospel.
