The Orphean passages : the drama of faith by Walter Wangerin( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Orphean Passages is Wangerin's compelling story of a Christian pastor's career and the drama of his faith." "Interlaced with the classical myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, this daring and unconventional inquiry into Christian experience ranks among the most challenging of Wangerin's works. Wangerin sees in the ancient myth an extraordinary parallel of the twists and turns individuals follow in their journeys of faith. In the author's own present-day Reverend Orpheus, that parallel is vividly played out - rendering the modern story of one man both universal and timeless." "The Orphean Passages asserts the truth of a legend that people of all times have experienced. It has the immediacy of a well-wrought novel, driving readers on to the surprising yet inevitable conclusion."--Jacket

Reliving the passion : meditations on the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus as recorded in Mark by Walter Wangerin( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No story has more significance than this: the death and resurrection of Jesus. But somehow the oft-repeated tale of Christ's Passion can become too familiar, too formalized, for us to experience its incredible immediacy. The meditations in Reliving the Passion follow the story as given in the gospel of Mark -- from the moment when the chief priests plot to kill Jesus to the Resurrection. But these readings are more than a recounting of events; they are an imaginary reenactment, leading the reader to re-experience the Passion or perhaps see it fully for the very first time
