Inspiring meditations on the Way of the Cross for everyone's life journey. When popular writer Joan Chittister heard that artist Janet McKenzie painted the fifteen stations of the cross, she was eager to write the accompanying text for her first book-length treatment of the stations. Appropriate for Lent and throughout the rest of the year, Chittister's reflections on the stations provide a guide for all of us on how to overcome obstacles and direct our path to a life that is newly fulfilling.

This book is absolutely magnificent! It is not only for Lent, it is an every day manual. The approach that Joan Chittister has taken is easy to read and understand and apply to our own life. The artwork is beautiful and is just perfect for this book. I received this book quite by surprise, but wheat a gift! It is the best book that I have read for some time. The pictures make the wording come alive. Do not hesitate to buy this one.
The two customer reviewers don't get it: the art came before Chittister's text! Janet McKenzie is not an illustrator but an artist. Her art does not make the text come alive; the art stood alone before there was a text.
As usual, Joan Chittister had taken a tradition and infused it with real life applications so that we may live more fully, more spiritually, and more with God with us; Oh, Emmanuel! Janet McKenzie's illustrations beautifully do justice to Joan's writings, and to the world we live in by illuminating (literally and figuratively) those who have for centuries been marginalized in religious art.
