Power and Passion
Full Product Description
Samuel Wells vividly paints the stories surrounding Jesus' cross and resurrection. We see the weakness of Pontious Pilate and Barabbas, and the compromised character's of Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. We discover the subtle power of Pilate's wife; and in Peter and Mary Magdalene we find true power and resurrection, bringing forgiveness and ending the stronghold of death, thus transforming all human passion.
Through close readings of the gospel texts, Wells demonstrates the significance of these characters for faith and life today.
In this book, structured with one chapter for each week of lent, Wells guides us from deathly power to the New power brought by Jesus' resurrection.

The Power and PassionMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This books takes a common enough starting point for Lent books in that it looks through the eyes of six of the people around at the Crucifixion, however this time they are the people filled with the most doubts and conflicts, Barrabas, Pilate, Peter, Mary Magdelene, Pilate’s Wife and Joseph of Arimathea. These are the people who most needed the resurrection and the transforming power of the passion according to Wells. An interesting take on a familiar subject that will be good for the Lent groups who use it as a study aid.
