Poignant meditations occasioned by a unique convergence of commemorative events.

On Good Friday, April 14, 1995, Christians remembered the crucifixion of Jesus, Jews reenacted the Passover, and the world at large observed the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II and the Holocaust. That unusual juxtaposition formed the backdrop as Joel Marcus - a Jew by birth, a Christian by choice - took the pulpit at St. Mary's Cathedral in Glasgow, Scotland.

This book presents Marcus's stirring meditations that day on the relationship between the deaths of six million innocent Jews in the Holocaust and the death of one innocent Jew on the cross. Through reflection on Bible passages in light of stories and poems about the Holocaust, Marcus shows how the hope that Christians have always found hidden in the darkest hour of their liturgical year can shed light on the most tragic moment of our recent history - and vice versa.

Review Text

  • By Ron Sagnella on March 3, 2016

    Deeply penetrating reflections on the crucifixion and the holocaust in a manner I never thought connected. This was written by a scholarly Jew well conversant with the Old and New Testaments and the history of the holocaust. (As Jew by birth and a Christian by choice.) A poignant, moving book that I highly recommend. Joel Marcus offers no slam dunks, no easy answers to the fact of evil in our times. A slim tome of a book which I highly recommend.

    A wonderful book I've loved since it was first published. I was a bookseller when it came out, and sold religious books. I did fairly decently in the job because I actually read the books [so I'd be better able to recommend titles, based on what you might find between the covers.]. I found this one startling and compelling and it's haunted me ever since. Nowadays I preach regularly as a lay minister, and craft liturgical services for the holidays and seasons in the church calendar. This is a terrific inspiration for that current work, and because the book's been hard to find, I'm very grateful to have a copy of it again. Thank you!

    I am researching the Holocaust from a Christian viewpoint so this title seemed to meet that need. I have so many books ( thank you, Amazon ) that I haven't even opened it yet but I anticipate a good read.
