Halík reflects an inclusive, accessible spirit that will appeal to general spirituality readers in the Catholic market. His presentation of this ancient devotion will also find interest among more traditional readers. Tomáš Halík challenges us with this new Via Crucis, rooted in the Gospel and addressed to believers and nonbelievers alike. He invites readers to a real encounter, one with Jesus in our present world. "Jesus and his cross are not something external to our lives, they are not an event that ended in the past, they must not be the object of our sentimental piety. Jesus does not invite us on the Way of the Cross to regret, but to change our mentality and our actions."
