Instead of the seven words that Jesus spoke from the cross, this book invites readers to consider seven words that people spoke to the cross - people like Mary and the Roman centurion, who witnessed the crucifixion, and Pontius Pilate, who helped to instigate it.

Review:

-- Booklist"Wright fills what are traditional sermons with fresh insights."-- Peter Enns in The Westminster Theological Journal"Accomplishes what so many attempt but rarely pull off: scholarly, thoughtful expositions of the gospel that also confront the reader with its utter simplicity, practicality, and power. . . . There is nothing at all humdrum about Wright's method of communicating the gospel."-- Epworth Review"Combining a simplicity of style, economy of words, and clarity of thought, these meditations offer a number of evocative phrases and fresh ideas for preachers and for personal devotions. . . . Highly recommended."-- The Baptist Times"Wright is faithful to Scripture and yet uses Scripture in such a way that time and again fresh insights are to be found."
