Through Scripture and examples from life, Fr. Rolheiser gives new understanding and encouragement in how we can give our lives to the world and to also give our death to the world.

The Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus the lover, who undergoes moral and emotional sufferings without resentment or bitterness.
