‘A movingly personal book … the fruit of much deeply meditated sharing of the good news with people of all sorts. Reading it is a real discovery of the fresh waters of faith.’ – from the foreword by Rowan Williams

‘After this, when Jesus knew that all now was finished, he said, “I am thirsty.”‘

Jesus’ words from the cross – a picture of God sharing the world’s suffering, experiencing our humanity – can be a window onto God’s purposes, leading to a deeper appreciation of his overwhelming love. I Thirst, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book for 2004, helps us explore what the death of Jesus means and how it relates to our lives today.

Bishop Stephen Cottrell follows the passion story in John’s Gospel, penetrating the deep mystery of a God who loves humanity no matter the cost. Each layer of meaning in the simple cry ‘I thirst’ is an invitation to consider our own lives and think again about what it means to be a follower of Christ in the modern world.
