In Fr. Sertillanges' spiritual classic - the reader is transported to the Holy Land in a way which the reader will not easily forget. The reader sees, through the eyes of Christ, the wedding feast at Cana, his baptism, the Upper Room, Gethsemane, and the Cross. Fr. Sertillanges, who lived in Jerusalem, presents the Passion of Christ with details that make the events come alive. Originally published in French in 1930, this book has stood the tests of time. Sophia Institute's version is highly readable. A retreat, a pilgrimage, and a meditation all wrapped in one - this book should be required reading, along with the Gospels, every Lent. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
