A melody for Holy Week

Christians at the Cross: Finding Hope in the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of JesusChristians at the Cross: Finding Hope in the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus by N.T. Wright

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wright preached a short sermon each day of Holy Week in Easington Colliery, England, in 2007. I enjoyed his theme throughout: that when we hear the main melody of the story of Jesus, we should also hear the bass line of the Old Testament that grounds the whole thing, and we also hear the tenor and alto lines of the stories of our society and personal lives, respectively. In each of the sermons, focuses on God’s redemptive purposes in Christ for the world and specifically for Easington Colliery, an old coal town whose mine was closed in the 1990s.
