With daily exercises designed to lead you into a new depth of understanding, Rhodes helps you experience for yourself the Passion narratives---the sights, sounds, smells, and emotional weight of the events that took place two thousand years ago.
In these pages, you'll find scriptures, meditations, and reflective questions along with an introduction to lectio divina, the centuries-old art of slowly, contemplatively praying God's Word. More encompassing than a devotional, Contemplating the Cross will transform the way you view the cross as you accept the Father's invitation to kneel in its shadow.
Tricia McCary Rhodes is the author of four books on the subject of prayer and the cross. In 1981, she and her husband, Joe, started New Hope Church in San Diego. The mother of two sons and grandmother of two, Tricia believes God's call on her life is to help others deepen their intimacy with Christ.
