A POWERFUL AND MOVING MESSAGE31687The trial, conviction and death of an innocent man 2000 years ago has particular resonance today. Atrocities from around the world shake us every week. And we ourselves also experience trials and challenges in our own lives.Bringing the gospel accounts vividly to life, Rowan Williams looks at how the trial of Christ profoundly challenges both what we believe and how we live. Drawing not only from the Bible, but also from contemporary fiction, film and theatre, he explores the ways society continues to put Christ on trial today. In fact, all Christians stand with him before a watching world.How we respond to this challenge is the focus of Christ on Trial. It increases our confidence in the faith we have received, and invites us to discover 'what we are and what we might be in God's sight'.

The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book, Christ on Trial explores the trial of Christ through the four Gospels. Recently invested as Archbishop of Wales, Rowan Williams looks at our modern reactions to the trials of Jesus and the martyrs. Bringing the gospel accounts of the trial and resurrection of Christ vividly to life, Christ on Trial shows how the words of the disciples still relate directly to us today. The trial, conviction and death of an innocent man 2000 years ago has particular resonance in an era when atrocities from around the world shake us every week. Here is a powerful and moving message for today. Drawing not only on the Bible versions of the pivotal event, but also on modern fiction, film and theatre, Rowan Williams illustrates clearly and simply the reasons for this most baffling of sacrifices, the death of God's own Son. Study material and questions at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to think about the issues revealed and to understand how Jesus' sacrifice has freed us all.
