About the Author

Andrew McGowan is McFaddin Professor of Anglican Studies and Dean of the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. His widely acclaimed books include Ascetic Eucharists and Ancient Christian Worship. He also serves as editor of the Journal of Anglican Studies. Philadelphia artist and spiritual director Bettina Clowney (1946-2020) graduated from Temple University's Tyler School of Art and studied with iconographer Vladislav Andreyev, and at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Direction. Her work illustrating this book includes the iconic cross at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Harleysville, Pennsylvania.


"In this inspiring book, Andrew McGowan not only offers reflections both powerful and poignant on the traditional seven last words of Jesus on the cross, but in a creative twist also considers the comments (or in one case, the silence) of seven other witnesses to this most dramatic of moments."--Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church and author of Love Is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times
"In these reflections, Andrew McGowan draws on Scripture and tradition to explore the deep connections between the cross and creation. With characteristic creativity and insight, McGowan helps us to see that the seven last words of Christ find their most lucid expression in the promise of the new creation. We hear these words again--as though for the first time."--William Lamb, vicar of University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Oxford, England
