    N. T. Wright weaves beautiful sermons in this brief collection. In meditating upon Holy Week, Wright allows the reading to experience the sorrow of the community at Easington Colliery. In experiencing the community's sorrow, the reader also recalls areas of sorrow and struggle in their own life. In the midst of this sorrow, Wright consistenly points to the hope of the cross and resurrection and how those necessary events interact with our lives today.

As the series concludes, Wright reminds Christians that our calling is not only to invite people to join us in heaven by accepting the grace of Christ, but to realize that we are created for the new heaven and the new earth. We are to bring to light the fact that the resurrection brings about the new creation even as we travel the often disappointing and disillusioning roads of life. Let us celebrate the resurrection and how it impacts us each day, not just in in the future.

    This little book of sermons was fruitful for me, which is all the more striking because I found this by chance, needing some reading material in a pinch on Good Friday. It's a window into NT Wright's pastoral side: his messages to a neglected community during Holy Week. I'm familiar with the main points of his speaking, but seeing them adapted to a specific group of parishoners brings them alive in a new way. Also, most of these sermons pair a passage from the gospel of John with a passage from This little book of sermons was fruitful for me, which is all the more striking because I found this by chance, needing some reading material in a pinch on Good Friday.

Also, most of these sermons pair a passage from the gospel of John with a passage from Isaiah, and they sent me back to read the Servant Songs of Isaiah more fully. In this context, they came alive for me in a new way as well. The Servant is a teacher, and we see his thoughts and doubts transparently, as well as his conviction that God is near and God will save. That spoke to me most of all, and isn't the point of Holy Week to hear God's word in a new way?

    A book of reflections to be read during Holy Week and based off of sermons that Tom Wright wrote to a community that has gone through hardships. In his typical prose, Wright gives a clear perspective on the purpose of the cross, albeit with a special leaning towards the context of human suffering. A thoughtful read.

    NT Wright always gives fresh insights both into the text and then more so into our lives as we reflect on them through the lens of the text. A wonderful gift on this Good Friday.

    Back in 2007 N.T. Wright visited Easington Colliery a town that has suffered through tragedy and hardship over the years. These eight sermons are what he preached during the Holy Week as he sought to bridge their sadness and fears with the horrors of the Easter story. Sidenote - his sermons are short. At first I starting reading to get some ideas for a sermon I was working on. But then I kept on reading as daily reflection in preparation for Easter.

These eight sermons are what he preached during the Holy Week as he sought to bridge their sadness and fears with the horrors of the Easter story. Sidenote - his sermons are short. At first I starting reading to get some ideas for a sermon I was working on. But then I kept on reading as daily reflection in preparation for Easter. Nothing astronomical or radically new, but I appreciated how he didn't side step the tough stuff. Also his 'music illustration' was pretty awesome. I'll probably use it in the future. ------- But there's one more part in this song, and it's very personal. Call it the alto part if you like - somethimes a bit shy, sometimes doesn't seem very exciting, but the harmony isn't complete without it, and sometimes it has spectuacular things to do. This is your part, your own personal story, your private bit of the song. As we listen for the main tune, Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem and Calvary; as we listen to the bass part, the Old Testament which grounds the whole thing; as we reflect on the tenor part, the story of our whole community; so we have to bring our own story and learn to sing it with this total music. The world all around us is giving us other music and telling us we have to keep in harmony with that. We are making this journey with Jesus this week because we want to leran again how to keep in with his song, with his story. ~ N.T. Wright Christians at the Cross (page 10) Great for ... Anyone looking for suppliment reading during Lent Pastors in need of a fresh perspective in teaching material Anyone who is suffering and needs to see their suffering through the pains of Easter

    This is a collection of N.T. Wright's sermons, which he delivered over the course of Holy Week at a church in former mining mecca that is slowly turning into a ghost town. These sermons focus on grace through the backdrop of the community's sorrow, decay, and struggle. I actually enjoyed how the power of place intertwined so closely with not only Wright's sermons, but also the lives of the people in attendance.

I actually enjoyed how the power of place intertwined so closely with not only Wright's sermons, but also the lives of the people in attendance. Certainly, his message resonates with readers, too, who are trying to deepen their experience with Christ's crucifixion and resurrection during lead up to and aftermath of the Easter season.

    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, Wright preached a short sermon each day of Holy Week in Easington Colliery, England, in 2007.

    This book was originally a series of Holy Week talks given to a small community whose economic and cultural infrastructure had been decimated. N.T. Wright relates their problems to scripture and gives a much-needed word of hope in Christ. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering through our current economic crisis, especially in hard-hit areas, such as my own Detroit.

    I really enjoyed this small book of sermons for each day of Holy Week. Wright preached them at a town in England that had been devastated by the coal mines closing. The sermons focus on bringing our own stories of suffering and grief within the story of Jesus' suffering, and thus finding healing. It is a wonderful and helpful book for Lent and Holy Week.

    A slim volume of sermons that focus on Holy Week. The author compares Jesus' trials with the losses in an English mining town. Certainly an effective way of teaching the relevance of scripture in ours lives. A slim volume of sermons that focus on Holy Week.
