SEVEN WORDS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY - BOOK & CD

 

**SORRY - CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK**

The 'seven last words', recorded in the gospels as being spoken by Christ as he hung on the cross, have long been used as a helpful structure for reflection on Christ's passion, drawing the worshipper into the tumultuous events of Good Friday. 

Beginning with a chapter by Rowan Williams on the meaning of the cross on contemporary society, subsequent chapters take each of the seven last words as the starting point to develop a thought-provoking and challenging reflection, drawing inspiration from theology, history, literature, ethics, film criticism and economics, and offering insights into how the seven words can speak to us afresh in the early years of the 21st century. Each chapter ends with a short meditation and a piece of Adrian's music from the accompanying CD, selected to reflect the meaning and mood of the meditation. 

The CD includes music from 'Solo' and 'Father' and two previously unreleased tracks. 

Contributors: Rowan Williams, Edmund Newall, Giles Fraser, Peter Doll, Sabina Alkire, Hugh White and Helen Cunliffe, with music by Adrian Snell. Edited by Edmund Newall.
