Fear, resentment, humiliation, cruelty, love and faith: these are some of the raw emotions exposed in the Gospel stories of Christ's Passion."Passionate Christianity" explores key moments in the Passion as experienced by those caught up in the world-changing events of the last hours of Jesus' life, and relates them to our lives and faith today.Cally Hammond invites you to experience afresh the events of the Passion - the agony in the garden of Gethsemane, the scourging of Jesus, the crowning with thorns, the carrying of the cross and the crucifixion. In doing this, she leads you to discover new depths of meaning in these events, develop a deeper commitment to your faith, and to meet the challenges of life with passionate Christianity.
