Each year on Good Friday and throughout Lent, Christian congregations all over the world walk the Stations of the Cross, a commemoration of Jesus' walk to Calvary. In Walking the Way of Sorrows, artist Noyes Capehart and writer/journalist Katerina Whitley provide a fresh resource for congregations and individuals who want to explore the meaning of these Stations more deeply. Capehart's stark and powerful blockcuts of the fourteen Stations are accompanied by monologues from the point of view of someone at each station. These monologues, along with biblical references and a brief liturgy, are excellent for individual devotion, but can also be used by groups who walk the Stations together.

"Capeheart's stark and powerful woodcuts of the 14 Stations and Whitley's monologues, written from the point of view of an observer at each Station, combine to provide a fresh understanding of Our Lord's passion. Each monologue begins with a verse of Scripture and concludes with a brief liturgy."--Catholic Parent
