Item Description...
Were you there when they crucified the Lord? Let Wangerin take you there through the unforgettable images recorded in Mark's Gospel. You'll recognize your own face in Jerusalem's streets, follow Jesus through his final week, experience his disciples' challenge and bewilderment. Read slowly---there's a meditation for each of the 40 days of Lent and one for Easter Sunday.

Publishers Description
No story has more significance than this: the death and resurrection of Jesus. But somehow the oft-repeated tale of Christ's passion can become too familiar, too formalized, for us to experience its incredible immediacy. The meditations in Reliving the Passion, which received a Gold Medallion Award in 1993, follow the story as given in the gospel of Mark---from the moment when the chief priests plot to kill Jesus to the Resurrection. But these readings are more than a recounting of events; they are an imaginary reenactment, leading the reader to re-experience the Passion or perhaps see it fully for the very first time. As only a great storyteller can, Walter Wangerin enables the reader to see the story from the inside, to discover the strangeness and wonder of the events as they unfold. It's like being there. In vivid images and richly personal detail, Wangerin helps us recognize our own faces on the streets of Jerusalem; breathe the dark and heavy air of Golgotha; and experience, as Mary and Peter did, the bewilderment, the challenge, and the ultimate revelation of knowing the man called Jesus. 'The story gets personal for every reader, ' writes Wangerin, 'for this is indeed our story, the story whereby we personally have been saved from such a death as Jesus died. 'No, there is not another tale in the world more meaningful than this---here is where we all take our stands against sin and death and Satan, upon this historical, historic event. I consider it a holy privilege to participate in it retelling. 'Read this book slowly. Read it with a seeing faith. Walk the way with Jesus. We, his followers of later centuries, do follow even now. Read, walk, come, sigh, live. Live Rise again

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reliving the Passion  Mar 20, 2007
This book was suggested as a good devotional for Lent. I agree; it is great. Mr Wangerin has a way of seeing the events of Holy Week as told in the Gospel of Mark with new eyes. I look forward to each day's reading for the new light he shines on it. Because Sundays are not counted in the 40 days of Lent, there are writings for Monday through Saturday.
The scripture is printed before each day's devotional writing, so there is no need to have a Bible alongside it.
This is the best devotion for Lent I have used.
Making the Cross Real  Jul 7, 2006
This is a series of 40 Lentan devotions--actually very vivid and brilliant insights on the reality of Jesus' dying on the cross. I have a very large library, but I have read nothing better on this theme. I have purchased 6 additional copies as gifts--any will be getting more.
Pure Poetry  Mar 6, 2002
This is my third year to read "Reliving the Passion". It is pure poetry at its finest and Walter Wangerin Jr. transports you back to the days leading up to and through the Passion. Add this book to you library and make it a tradition each year at Lent. Also check out his book for Advent!
Excellent!  Mar 4, 1999
Dying to live. Won't you join the journey? Wangerin puts us into the journey to Golgotha and beyond.

I could not put this book down - prepare to be changed!  Feb 24, 1999
Wangerin's writing style is so refreshing - it brings the story of Christ to life in a new and exciting way. The emotive writing style draws you in as the reader and you cannot put the book away - I read and re-read the crucifixion chapters and came away almost breathless with a renewed sense of what Christ went through for me! The cast of characters that were involved also come to life with all the passion and "realness" of that day.
