Item Description...
THE CHARACTERS OF THE CRUCIFIXION retells, from a personal point of view, the gospel versions of the Passion Narrative. The accounts are updated for us by "Reflection-prayers," so that we can tak them to heart. Not all of the fifteen characters are exemplary, though all together they outline the Church and society as they exist today, in a state of good and evil, reflecting the cause and effect of the crucifixion of Christ.

Publishers Description

Fr. Fichtner offers a striking retelling of the passion narrative that enables anyone to participate in the crucifixion today as a Peter; Mary Magdalene; John, Son of Zebedee; or Mary, Mother of Jesus - not only in the suffering but also in the triumph. He vividly retells thirty-eight of Jesus' stories by characterizing fifteen people who are somehow, for better or worse, involved in the crucifixion of Christ. The characterizations are drawn from the gospel sources of the Passion narrative and described in the historical present tense to be applicable today. Each presentation concludes with a reflection-prayer that updates the event of the crucifixion and shows its personal and social implications.

Adults or teens participating in passion plays will appreciate the insights Fr. Fichtner offers into these characters. For those seeking a lenten reflection, this look at human life at the start of the first millennium helps us reflect on our own lives at the start of the third.

Chapters are Peter," "Judas Iscariot," "The High Priests," "Pontius Pilate," "The Crowd of Spectators," "Barabbas," "Roman Soldiers," "Simon of Cyrene," "Women of Jerusalem," "The Mother of the Zebedees," "The Two Thieves," "Mary Magdalene," "John, Son of Zebedee," "Mary, Mother of Jesus," and "Christ Crucified." Includes illustrations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reincarnation Proved  Jun 11, 2007
Father Fichtner's insightful consideration of the motives behind the actions of participants in and witnesses to the crucifixion instills life in long-dead characters. His description of time and place puts flesh on major and minor actors alike, creating an understanding of ourselves, of humankind's capacity for bravery, knavery and love.
