Much-respected theologian Hauerwas...has written a brief but intensely observed discussion of the theological issues that subtend the last utterances of Jesus on the cross. Hauerwas's theology and approach belong squarely in the mainstream tradition of Christian theology about Christ and redemption; many readers will gain profound insight from his deftly phrased, swiftly moving observations. Highly recommended.
-Graham Christian, Library Journal
A close and moving reading of each of Christ's last sayings from the cross...Don't miss this opportunity to reflect further upon the last words of our Lord and Savior.
"Hauerwas rightly reckons that you cannot understand the birth of Jesus without wrestling with his death.
Wall Street Journal Stanley Hauerwas is (and has always been) a writer on his own terms, and a very good one. In Cross-Shattered Christ...Hauerwas departs from the style of some of his other work and writes to show the connections in his own life... Hauerwas' meditations on the seven last words of Christ are unadorned and unsparing examinations of sayings that we are at once drawn to, yet fear. An earnest grappling replaces the usual fare of the often witty verbal combat that characterizes so much of Hauerwas the 'lover,' lover of his friends and family, the church, and God. It is a rare and wonderful treat that he has allowed us to listen in as this passionate man speaks passionately about the connections he has made.
-Carole Bailey Stoneking,
Packed with good theology...I read Hauerwas's book slowly and, in the process, discovered a number of new ways of thinking about the Passion narratives. This book would make good reading during the Lenten season, or a nice companion text for a retreat. An added advantage is handsome woodcuts by Rick Beerhorst, which aid the reader in experiencing what St. Ignatius calls in the Exercises, 'composition of place'.
-Lawrence S. Cunningham,
Commonweal This slim volume provides some strong and salutary reading for the Lenten season. Famed theologian and writer Stanley Hauerwas takes up a time-honored and beautiful tradition of reflecting on the seven last words of Jesus in his Passion. Each of these meditations...deals powerfully with these evocative biblical texts and their implications for Christian life today.
CP, The Bible Today
Here is a little book by one of our best theologians that makes for ideal reading at Lent. You could read it with great profit for personal meditations or in a church class.
-Daniel B. Clendenin,
These are real sermons preached in one of those three-hour Good Friday services and is one of the more interesting ones I've ever read...There are stunning wood-block prints by the amazing Rick Beerhorst before each sermon in this handsome, hand-sized [volume] and these are worth the price of the book themselves.
