About "Preaching the Hard Sayings of Jesus"
"Challenge" has routinely been associated with the message of Jesus--and rightly so. But beyond the challenging words of Jesus come the "hard sayings"; these persist in shaking us out of our easy chairs of faith and stir us to reexamine the gospel in all its glory--the glory of the Crucified One. When it comes to stirring others to hear that hard message of the Cross and to guiding the faithful in understanding the same, no one could ask for a better set of guides than James R. Carroll and his son, John T. Carroll. This blend of seasoned ministerial experience and solid scholarly talents yields a rich interpretation that is simultaneously down to earth and yet original and insightful.
