The Way of the Cross
Product DescriptionInspiring meditations on the Way of the Cross for everyone's life journey.
Joan Chittister, one of the most popular religious writers today and a prophetic voice for many years in the American church, had never before written a book length treatment of the stations of the cross. When she heard that noted artist Janet McKenzie had painted the fifteen stations, she was eager to write the accompanying text. McKenzie's eye for the sacred and Chittister's profound meditations on the mysteries of the Cross are joined in this deeply reflective and inspiring book.
Offering insights both literary and aesthetic to the reader, these penetrating meditations are appropriate for Lent or for prayerful reflection at any time of the year.
