Rev. Dr. Deborah Appler

In each chapter of Witness at the Cross, Levine parses out the Gospel’s witness accounts of Jesus’s crucifixion and invites readers to be transformed by this theological symphony of the cross. This informative, witty, and accessible study provides a welcome preaching and teaching resource for clergy and laity. Small group leaders will also appreciate its six-chapter format ideal for a Lenten study.

Rev. Dr. John S. McClure

This is a timely and important introduction to the events of Holy Friday. Levine’s approach is scholarly yet personal, theologically sophisticated yet devotional. She does a masterful job sorting through the perspectives of the Gospel writers, showing readers what each evangelist accentuates and the things each writer wants us to think more deeply about and to question when it comes to our own experience of the world today. This is the best possible resource for either reflective reading or a study group.

Rev. Mitch Gieselman

With her wit, wisdom, and vast knowledge of the scriptures in their historical context, Amy-Jill Levine has brought to life the characters who the Gospels tell us were witnesses to the Crucifixion. Witness at the Cross: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Friday is structured in a way that easily serves as a weekly Lenten study. But this isn’t “Bible Study Lite.” The reader/student does well to summon a little courage for this journey. Levine’s insights often challenge things we may have assumed we knew, and she does so with humor and generosity of heart that blesses even the simplest search for biblical understanding.
