Special 10th Anniversary Edition contains a new foreword by Kenneth Leech  

Witnessing to the cross of Christ stands at the very heart of Christian spirituality, and without it our faith makes no sense. In this tenth anniversary edition of Kenneth Leech's classic Lenten book, We Preach Christ Crucified, he draws from his own prayer, study of the Bible, and encounters with others to offer a rich account of the resurrection for today. The themes of suffering and healing, justice and compassion, and Christ's dying and rising all come together in a compelling theology of discipleship and ministry.

With six short chapters and hymns and poetry drawn from the Anglican spiritual tradition, We Preach Christ Crucified is an excellent resource for study groups who want to enter more deeply into the meaning of Christian discipleship faith and prayer and study New Testament texts that draw on the Resurrection and themes of Jesus' passion.

Kenneth Leech is the founder of Centrepoint, one of the biggest programs for homeless youth in Europe, and former field officer for racial justice for the Church of England and community theologian at St Botolph's Church in Aldgate, London. He is the author of many highly regarded books, including Soul Friend, The Eye of the Storm, True Prayer, and the award-winning Care and Conflict.

"This book feeds the hungry soul. I found myself reading this book slowly, savoring passages, stopping to think and rethink, pausing to pray. I hope that any Christian who wishes to enter into and share more profoundly the mystery of Christ's redeeming death and resurrection will have the great good sense to read it."
Episcopal Life

"The spirituality of Christ crucified will not uncomplicate your life. Instead, Leech offers the dangerous and ridiculous complications of the cross."

"Excellent reading for Lent."
The Living Church

"A book to wrestle with, argue about, take to heart. It is serious theology."
