あらすじ・解説

New York Times Best Seller

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham explores the seven last sayings of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels, combining rich historical and theological insights to reflect on the true heart of the Christian story. 

For Jon Meacham, as for believers worldwide, the events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. A former vestryman of Trinity Church Wall Street and St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, Meacham delves into that intersection of faith and history in this meditation on the seven phrases Jesus spoke from the cross. 

Beginning with “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” and ending with “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” Meacham captures for the listener how these words epitomize Jesus’s message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy. For each saying, Meacham composes an essay on the origins of Christianity and how Jesus’s final words created a foundation for oral and written traditions that upended the very order of the world. 

Writing in a tone more intimate than any of his previous works, Jon Meacham returns us to the moment that transformed Jesus from a historical figure into the proclaimed Son of God, worshiped by billions.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I saw Jon Meacham this morning on.morning joe, purchased the book on audible and listened to it all in one setting. I was transported to another time and place and had no idea of the time or place I was in. I come away with a deeper understanding of the message of the cross and who I am as a Christian in relation to that message. The book is a beautiful Lenten gift!

Say it ain’t so, John

Having admired Meacham’s work, I was eager to hear his thoughts. But, oh my, what a dreary trudge it was. This is a short audiobook that felt far too long.

Wonderful reflections on Jesus' last word

Meacham may just be writing reflections, but he infuses them with historical references that only he can provide with such facility . I read this book today, on Good Friday , 2020. It was just what I needed on this Holy day, at this crazy time in history . Thanks, I needed that .

Thank you, Mr. Meacham

I enjoyed listening. It brought me memories of my childhood when my Sunday school teachers explained the Crucifixion. You have assisted in me teaching others; why we have ”Hope.”

More Meacham brilliance

More reasons why Jon Meacham is the most thoughtful and deepest historian alive! He probes more than the obvious. He did it with George HW Bush and now he does it with Jesus!
