"A historical and scriptural narrative of the Holy Week story. Largely based on the Lucan account of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection, Father O'Malley's ultimate goal is to connect the narrative to the real, lived experience of the reader."--National Federation of Priests Councils
With this dramatic retelling of the Passion, Jesuit Father William O'Malley brings us vividly into each of Jesus' last days. Together with questions and meditations, the lesson is this: there can be no rebirth or renewal without personal experience of suffering and death, surmounted with dignity, hope, and faith. Jesus' life, death and resurrection become not only our model for living but our life itself.
"Bill O'Malley, the Jesuit C.S. Lewis of our times, does it again, revealing for us why Jesus did what he did, who Jesus was and is, and what it all means for us." --Richard Malloy, author, Being on Fire
"Read it to meet a 'God who invites exploration but defies conquest.'”---Kathy Coffey, author, The Best of Being Catholic
