This contemporary Stations of the Cross, written by theologian and storyteller John Shea, is designed for a leader and congregation. While in keeping with the traditional devotion, it also contains aspects of liturgical drama. At each station a character presents a monologue that connects the passion of Christ with contemporary forms of suffering, followed by a brief reflection by the leader, a period of silence, and a short sung response--a total time of forty-five to fifty-five minutes for the whole service. Through their participation in the fourteen stations, the leader, speakers, and assembly enter more deeply into the passion of Christ and into the mystery of their own suffering.

The 8 ½ x 11 leader/accompaniment edition is three-hole punched to fit in a ceremonial binder, and contains the complete text of the service as well as accompaniment versions of Steve Warner's "Crux Fidelis" and Kevin Keil and Alan Hommerding's "Stations of the Cross." The coordinating people's edition contains the reflection responses and assembly versions of these same pieces.
