The Way of the Passion: Forty Stations with Jesus takes the traditional fourteen Stations of the Cross and expands them using accounts from the Gospels. Starting with Christ's entry into Jerusalem, it closely follows Jesus' steps to Calvary. The Way of the Passion provides reflections for events during Holy Week that are not always considered, offering new insights into events such as Jesus predicting Peter's denials.
Providing a framework for reading between the lines that we find in the Gospel, The Way of the Passion takes a closer look at all of the events during Holy Week. "The Gospels give us only the essential details of the passion because a meticulous report of the proceedings is not the intention of the evangelists, who are concerned primarily with our Lord's teaching and in establishing, in the light of the resurrection, who he is and how he fulfills God's promise of a Savior." These forty stations take what we see in the Gospels and expand it, to help give the horror and trauma of Christ's passion a fresh immediacy, and to help understand more fully the impact of the event and what God did to secure our salvation.
The Way of the Passion offers new insights into those events, using a combination of Bible passages, meditations, poetry, and prayers from the tradition of the Church. Let this book help you explore Christ's death in a deeper and more personal way, bringing you closer to him.
