The Seven Last Words by Michael Crosby 9780883449387

In this personal and poetic work, Michael Crosby reflects on Jesus' last words from the cross. Each meditation is accompanied by a photograph or illustration, and draws on the author's own experience to explore the meaning of Christ's suffering and its ongoing meaning for our lives.

It is not so much that the words are fulfilled in us as that the Word is enfleshed in us.  It is not so much that those "seven last words" are translated in our lives as that the Word transforms us into those words."  Michael H. Crosby

The Seven Last Words reveals the powerful implications for contemporary followers of Jesus in the final words form the cross.

Crosby leads us into a meditation that reflects on each work in the context of the Gospel, and of Jesus' time as well as ours.  Every chapter includes an applicaiton of the word's enduring message, using particular examples ("ikons") from contemporary life that enflesh the word for readers today.

The Seven Last Words makes profound spiritual reading not only for personal Lenten reflection, but for groups studying the scriptures and everyone concerned with making the scriptures come alive.

"The ancient familiar words are made to reverberate with contemporary exegesis and illustrations.  the result is a moving reflection that reveals the depth of Jesus' words so that they echo loudly in our hearts and struggles for justice and hope."  Megan McKenna
