Based on a series of popular sermons preached on Good Friday to overflowing crowds at the famous Saint Agnes Church in New York City, these meditations by Father George Rutler on the Seven last Words of Christ from the Cross are uniquely presented in parallel with the traditional seven wonders of the ancient world.

Admist the tumultuous changes and crises of these modern times, Father Rutler shows how the climatic words of Christ remain the great answer to the questions of the social order. The future of culture hangs on the Man hanging on the Cross.

"In this powerful set of meditations and pertinent philosophic reflections, Father Rutler relates the death of Christ to the great Wonders of the Ancient World and through them and the Cross, to the meaning and problems of our own lives and times. This effort, this sacred eloquence of George Rutler, is a remarkably fresh, profound, rewarding consideration of the meaning of faith and grace within our time and any time, of the wonders of the world and of the wonders of our redemption."
Fr. James V. Schall, SJ., Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University
