With daily exercises designed to lead you into a new depth of understanding, Rhodes helps you experience for yourself the Passion narratives---the sights, sounds, smells, and emotional weight of the events that took place two thousand years ago.
In these pages, you'll find scriptures, meditations, and reflective questions along with an introduction to lectio divina, the centuries-old art of slowly, contemplatively praying God's Word. More encompassing than a devotional, Contemplating the Cross will transform the way you view the cross as you accept the Father's invitation to kneel in its shadow.
Tricia McCary Rhodes is the author of four books on the subject of prayer and the cross. In 1981, she and her husband, Joe, started New Hope Church in San Diego. The mother of two sons and grandmother of two, Tricia believes God's call on her life is to help others deepen their intimacy with Christ.

Few times of year lend themselves to pilgrimage and contemplation like Easter. For forty days, Christians have before them the opportunity to examine their own path and compare it with the incredible journey undertaken by Christ, from the agony of the garden to the glory of the resurrection. By sharing her journey, Tricia Rhodes provides the tools to cultivate the cross within and the inspiration to accept the Father's summons to kneel in its shadow. Scripture and daily exercises gently nourish the spiritual traveler, while journal pages wait to hold the story of personal reflection.
More encompassing than a devotional, more intimate than a mere yardstick of faith, Contemplating the Cross will become a treasured keepsake.
"May God touch your deepest soul and brand you with the fire of His devotion as you contemplate the cross of Christ." Tricia Rhodes
