In light of Christ's passion, a psychologist and theologian struggles to understand and respond to the practice of torture and the sufferings of the "crucified people."

In this timely and soul-searching work, John Neafsey explores the relation between Christ's passion and the ongoing practice of torture in our world, Drawing on his own experience in treating victims of torture, Neafsey explores the psychological and spiritual impact of this abuse on its victims, and on the torturers, as well. This theme opens into a wider reflection on those Ignacio Ellacuria called "the crucified peoples of history." When we see Christ in these victims, spiritual discernment must be joined by social analysis and action. What have we done to put these people on the cross? What must we do to take them down? Finally, Neafsey explores the possibilities for healing and redemption, especially the challenge for all of us to become more deeply human by awakening from what Jon Sobrino calls "the sleep of inhumanity."
