Instead of the seven words that Jesus spoke from the cross, Tom Wright invites you 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. The result is a powerful sequence of meditations that will move you to reassess your own response to Jesus' death, his resurrection, and the continuing influence of his Spirit on those who follow him today.

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."
