This classic of spiritual writing transforms our understanding of the experience of illness, or of being out of work, or feeling inactive and powerless. W. H. Vanstone shows us the unquestioned and impressive majesty of Jesus as he 'waits' before those who accuse him, waits before those who taunt him and, finally, waits even before those who crucify him. It is in his passivity, in his willingness to be 'handed over', that Jesus discloses the deepest dimension of the glory of God. The times of passivity and 'passion', when we have things done to us instead of doing things, the times when we simply wait, are as important as the times of action and taking charge.
