The bestselling spiritual writer reflects on 15 paintings by contemporary American artist Janet McKenzie in a 21st centry interpretation of the centuries old Christian devotion. When popular writer Joan Chittister heard that artist Janet McKenzie painted the fifteen stations of the cross, she was eager to write the accompanying text—her first book-length treatment of the stations. Appropriate for Lent and throughout the rest of the year, Chittister’s reflections on the stations provide a guide for all of us on how to overcome obstacles and direct our path to a life that is newly fulfilling.
