Eyes Upon the Cross

Listen to CHRI’s radio promotion or CFRA’s radio promotion for Eyes Upon the Cross.

A fresh and powerful portrayal of the crucifixion story exploring the raw emotions and conflicting perspectives of those who experienced the life and death of Christ. Presented in a contemporary setting, Eyes Upon the Cross is told through the eyes of close to 30 different characters, whether friends or opponents, believers or critics, those who were there, or who might have been there. Characters range from a temple servant, to a freed criminal; from the outcasts and those who followed Him, to the one who betrayed Him; from the man who tried Him, to the woman who gave Him wine.
