Hope for Judas: God’s Boundless Mercy for Us All
Christoph Wrembek, SJ:
Paperback: New City Press, 2021
“Hope for Judas” . . . Judas? The son of destruction? Judas, about whom the gospels tell us very little beyond the dramatic events during the Passion? Jesus’s loving-saving action finds its culmination in him? Beginning from a sculpturecarved at the capital of a column in the medieval Basilica of St. Mary Magdalene in Vézelay, France, Fr. Christoph Wrembek will take you on a breathtaking, challenging, yet ultimately deeply touching journey through key stories of sacred scripture, stories about being lost but ultimately always about salvation. This journey leads into the soul of the gospel, which is Jesus himself.
“A beautiful meditation not simply on the story of Judas but on all of our stories, and the place of God’s love, mercy and compassion, which can overcome any barrier, even sin.”
– James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
