Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806640332, Paperback)

What does it mean to follow Jesus in the way of the cross? How does Christian faith enable us to bear our own sufferings and losses and bear the suffering of others in the world with hope? In this contemporary reinterpretation of the stations of the cross, the editors have gathered reflections from writers such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dorothy Day, Henri Nouwen, Carter Heyward, Lewis Smedes, Desmond Tutu, Walter Wink, Thomas Merton, Julia Esquivel, Gustavo Guitierrez, M. Scott Peck, and Martin Marty, to shed new light on a lifestyle based on the way of the cross.

This deeply reflective book touches on timeless spiritual issues: abandoning ourselves to God, letting go of apparent security and control, dying to old relationships and old selves, finding courage in adversity, making sense out of suffering, choosing to trust that life is stronger than death. This is the first paperback edition of a book first published by Harper San Francisco in 1993.
