Details

The Way of the Cross in the Gospel of Mark. In the life and death of Jesus, the Good News of God's love for all humanity was revealed. Seeing His Son nailed to a cross did not make the Father reject us; instead He offered us even more hope and love through the resurrection. In this beautiful set of reflections on Mark's Gospel, Father Joseph Chalmers gives a fresh perspective on the traditional practice of tracing Jesus' Passion through the 'Stations of the Cross'. After setting Mark's Gospel in context and exploring its layers of meaning through informative scriptural commentary, Fr. Joseph considers how God's Word might lead us into a deeper relationship with God through prayer and service. As Prior General of the Carmelites (1995-2007), a religious order which puts particular emphasis on pondering God's Word, Most Rev. Fr. Joseph Chalmers has shared with people across the world his experience of how God speaks words of love today through the Bible. In this, his third book of Bible meditations, Fr. Joseph engages with the challenge of aggressive secularism, encourages Christians to stand up for the Kingdom values Jesus taught, and prompts readers to put their love of God into active service of the marginalised. Father Joseph reveals how meditating upon Scripture can lead into vocal, mental and silent prayer. Drawing from the Christian contemplative tradition, particularly the teachings of Saint Teresa of Avila, he shows how we can deepen our friendship with the God that we know loves us, as proved by the Passion of Christ. "This is indeed a book not just for Lent but for any time we wish to indulge in guided prayer throughout the year recommend this book to those who wish to immerse themselves in the account of the Passion of Our Lord from St. Mark's Gospel, thus strengthening their own Christian faith and their desire for Christian action." from Foreword by Cardinal Keith O'Brien, Archbishop of St. Andrews & Edinburgh.
