The Last Words of Jesus: A Meditation on Love and Suffering (Digital Download)
In his preface, Horan writes: In a world that remains irrevocably shaped by the suffering of the human condition, the misunderstanding between groups and cultures symbolized by the horrific events of September 11, we need to hear Christ’s words anew.” He gives us a different look into these words by drawing on works by other noted scholars and spiritual writers, then fashioning a view of these phrases that’s contemporary and thought-provoking.
An ideal Lenten companion, especially during Holy Week, The Last Words of Jesus will also serve as a useful meditation throughout the year on the deep love Jesus bore for us in taking on the human condition.

Excellent piece of work! Although I thought the preface was a bit lengthy (I kept waiting for the beginning of the meditations), the meat of the meditations was well thought out and made for some interesting insights. The one that made an impact on me was the "two sides of the coin" analogy of mercy and suffering.
