With woodcuts by artist Noyes Capehart Long. Morehouse Publishing, 2003
Each year on Good Friday, Christian congregations all over
the world walk the Stations of the Cross, a commemoration
of Jesus' walk to Calvary. In Walking the Way of Sorrows,
artist Noyes Capehart and writer/journalist Katerina Whitley
provide a fresh resource for congregations and individuals
who want to explore the meaning of these Stations more deeply.
Capehart's stark and powerful blockcuts of the fourteen Stations
are accompanied by monologues from the point of view of someone
at each station. These monologues, along with biblical references
and a brief liturgy, are excellent for individual devotion,
but can also be used by groups who walk the Stations together.
