Crosby leads us into a meditation that reflects on each word in the context of the Gospel, and of Jesus' time as well as ours. Every chapter includes an application of the word's enduring message, using particular examples from contemporary life that enflesh the word for readers today. The Seven Last Words makes profound spiritual reading not only for personal Lenten reflection but for groups studying the scriptures and everyone concerned with making the scriptures come alive.
