Walking the Way of the Cross: Prayers and Reflections on the Biblical Stations of the Cross
An intriguing blend of ancient tradition and contemporary reflection, this resource offers a series of scripture-based devotions for use during Lent and Holy Week, either by an individual, a family, class/small group, or entire congregation. Based on the traditional Stations of the Cross, it focuses wholly on the biblical narrative of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It also includes black and white images of Eric Gill's sculptures which mark the stations of the cross in Westminster Cathedral.
Two complete ways of moving through the stations of the cross are detailed, accompanied by short reflections from today's very best spiritual writers:
- Paula Gooder offers reflections on the scriptural narratives;
- Stephen Cottrell considers the story from the perspective of personal discipleship;
- Philip North explores the story's challenge to mission and witness.
