Numerous writers and composers have been captivated by the suggestiveness of Jesus' Seven Last Words. But Richard John Neuhaus's sustained exploration of these utterances is something altogether different. Through them he plumbs the depths of human experience and sets forth the central narrative of Western civilization-the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ-in a way that engages the attention of believers, unbelievers, and those who are not sure what they believe. Death on a Friday Afternoon is an invitation to the reader into a spiritual and intellectual exploration of the dark side of human experience with the promise of light and life on the far side of darkness.… (més)

Years ago, during Holy Week, Fr. Richard John Neuhaus preached on the seven last words of Christ. He decided to expand the sermons into a book.
Death on a Friday afternoon is one of the most profound meditations on the death and resurrection of Jesus. This book can be read anytime of the year, however, once read, you will find yourself drawn back to it again and again. It is an amazing piece of theological reflection and thought. ( )

Hmm. I was torn about how to rate this book; I guess I'd give it a 3 1/2 if I could. It was the first Neuhaus book I read, and, to be honest, I now think I enjoy his thought as a cultural commentator more than as a theologian.

I was looking forward to reading it during Holy Week, and it truly did contain some wonderful meditations on the Cross, which alone made it well worth reading. However, I felt that Neuhaus veered off his meditative course rather distractingly at times, and I found some of his thoughts on universalism and soteriology troubling. Occasionally he just went on too long.

For someone who worked so closely with evangelicals, he sometimes sounded, to my admittedly ultra-sensitive ears, a bit straw-mannish in his appraisals of Protestant theology. And I just don't really feel like debating what happened on the Cross when I'm reading this book on Good Friday. Still, for all that...an undeniably rich and well-written book by a godly man with a pastoral heart. ( )

An absolutely beautiful and punchy meditation on the Seven Last Words of Christ. Neuhaus has a sledgehammer style which is fairly unusual in meditative works, but highly effective when reviewing the Passion of Christ. Excited to read other books by him and to follow up on references he made in this work. Highly recommend. ( )

Read this book for the first time about 10 years ago and have pulled it out most holy week's since to look at it. This year was the first time I re-read it. A lot of insightful stuff here. I think this is Neahaus's best book. ( )
