Intersections of Cross

This book was incredibly insightful on the work, theological implications, practical application and power of Christ's work on the cross. Though written strictly from catholic perspective, as a Protestant I gained much personal connection with Jesus through this book and enjoyed a new perspective of how the Cross and Jesus' resurrection intersect in my life daily. There is much to ponder...I plan to listen again.

Profound Reflections

One of the most profound spiritual reads in recent memory. At several points, I had to rewind and replay—not because I didn’t understand, but because I was blown away by the insight. Incredible metaphors and explanations.

Not as inspiring as hoped for

I know the Passion represented a lot of things all of which are explained in the book. However there was a sense that we all have crosses to bear and that we should learn to deal with it.

Passion and the Cross a good Lenten read

Like most of Rolheiser's work, The Passion and the Cross was exceptional. It's a wonderful work to use as the basis for meditation. Rolheiser's theology is accessible and down to earth. Much of what he says resonates with me as a person of faith.
