Overview

Clarence Enzler’s perennially bestselling Stations of the Cross booklet has sold more than 3 million copies since it was first published in 1970 and is now updated with fresh, bold, commissioned woodcuts by renowned artists Annika Nelson and Gertrud Mueller Nelson.

For more than forty years, the simple, intimate, and powerful words of Clarence Enzler’s Everyone’s Way of the Cross have invited readers to grow closer to Christ by embracing the mystery of suffering in the world. By joining Christ on this transformative journey, we learn to become his disciples—his other self—to a hurting world.

Enzler’s classic is given new vibrancy with beautiful, meditative, commissioned woodcuts by Annika Nelson and her mother Gertrud Mueller Nelson. The artists express how these meditations show Christ among us—often in unexpected places. In their words, “We find him in the subway, yearning at the border, standing in the soup line—the bewildered soldier, the single mother, the abused child, the lonely senior, the bullied teen.”
