Product Description

Drawing from important novels, plays, and poems, theologian David Cunningham reflects on the issues of suffering, death, and new life in the context of the Christian faith. The three days of Holy Week---Good Friday, Silent Saturday, and Easter Sunday---provide the framework for these reflections on the universal human experiences. These reflections are enriched by Cunningham's presentations of Christian perspectives, which are helpful resources for dealing with grief and pain, separation and absence, and transformation and renewal. Works discussed include those of T. S. Elliot, William Shakespeare, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Questions for discussion and reflection make this book useful for group study or personal devotion.

Publisher's Description

Theologian and writer David Cunningham draws from novels, poems, and plays to give a resource for humans who face suffering, death, and new life. He provides a religious reading of important literary texts, with three studies for each of the three themes--drawn together by the weekly sequence of Friday-Saturday-Sunday and the events of Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. These reflections on universal experiences are enriched by Cunningham's presentations of Christian perspectives which are significant resources for dealing with grief and pain, separation and absence, and transformation and renewal.
