Ascension Films Lenten Program in Holy Land

[West Chester, PA, November 29, 2018—] Ascension, the world leader in Faith Formation, announced today it has scheduled a February, 2019 release of a new 5-part study program and corresponding book called No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk through Christ’s Passion, presented by Dr. Edward Sri.

The new program will include a 5-part video series, a “bonus”
sixth segment on Christ’s Resurrection, a Workbook for both individual and group study, and the most anticipated book of the same title.

“We are thrilled to welcome the estimable Dr. Sri again in the
Ascension fold,” said Product Manager John Harden. “He is
among a handful of pre-eminent evangelists in the Catholic
Church and no one in our generation has spent more time
studying and reflecting on the full significance of Christ’s
Passion and Death.”

The new program was filmed on location in the Holy Land. It
focuses on the Agony in the Garden, the Trial before Pilate, the
Carrying of the Cross, and the Crucifixion at Calvary.

“Though we celebrate Christ’s Passion during Holy Week every
year, we can easily lose sight of its profound meaning for our
lives,” Dr. Sri said. “This new series examines some of the tough
questions: Why did Christ have to die for us? What did His
death accomplish? Why was He willing to do what He did?”

Dr. Sri is the Vice President of Formation for FOCUS, the
Fellowship of Catholic University Students, and the author of a
number of popular books on the faith, including: A Biblical Walk
through the Mass; Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed
Mother; Who am I to Judge; and … The Bible Compass.

“This new program is for anyone who wants to experience a
deeper relationship with Christ, and experience more deeply
his extraordinary love for each of us,” Harden added. “After all,
Christ’s Passion and Death is central to who we are as
Christians.”
