Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No story has more significance than this: the death and resurrection of Jesus. But somehow the oft-repeated tale of Christ's passion can become too familiar, too formalized, for us to experience its incredible immediacy. <BR> The meditations in Reliving the Passion, which received a Gold Medallion Award in 1993, follow the story as given in the gospel of Mark--from the moment when the chief priests plot to kill Jesus to the Resurrection. But these readings are more than a recounting of events; they are an imaginary reenactment, leading the reader to re-experience the Passion or perhaps see it fully for the very first time. <BR> As only a great storyteller can, Walter Wangerin enables the reader to see the story from the inside, to discover the strangeness and wonder of the events as they unfold. It's like being there. In vivid images and richly personal detail, Wangerin helps us recognize our own faces on the streets of Jerusalem; breathe the dark and heavy air of Golgotha; and experience, as Mary and Peter did, the bewilderment, the challenge, and the ultimate revelation of knowing the man called Jesus. <BR> "The story gets personal for every reader," writes Wangerin, "for this is indeed our story, the story whereby we personally have been saved from such a death as Jesus died. <BR> "No, there is not another tale in the world more meaningful than this--here is where we all take our stands against sin and death and Satan, upon this historical, historic event. I consider it a holy privilege to participate in it retelling. <BR> "Read this book slowly. Read it with a seeing faith. Walk the way with Jesus. We, his followers of later centuries, do follow even now.Read, walk, come, sigh, live. Live! Rise again!"

Synopsis:

These imaginary reenactments follow the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus from the time the chief priests plotted to kill Him to His glorious resurrection from the dead, allowing readers to re-experience the Passion--or perhaps see it fully for the first time.

Synopsis:

As only a great storyteller can, Wangerin takes you inside the story of Christ's passion. Reliving the Passion translates the events--from the moment the chief priests plot to kill Jesus to the Resurrection--into the realm of feeling, image, and experience. In richly personal detail, Wangerin helps us recognize our own faces in the streets of Jerusalem; and experience, as Mary and Peter did, the ultimate revelation of knowing the man called Jesus.

Synopsis:

Author Walter Wangerin, Jr., retells the Passion story (from Mark's version) and gives it new relevance for today's reader.
