This is one of the best Christian books about Easter I’ve read. It’s always good to reread the parts of the Bible that feature the death and resurrection of Jesus around this time. However this book will offer an additional means of study.
It will allow you to read and think about the other people who were there in a new light. Judas wasn’t just a betrayer. Thomas wasn’t just a doubter. Pilate wasn’t exactly who you thought.
I plan to reread this book every Easter if I can. If not, than maybe every other. I think it really helps you understand what happened and why it had to happen that way.
After the introduction, each chapter features on a specific person or people. In order: Peter, John, Judas, Barabbas, Pilate, Thomas, Pharisees/Scribes/Sadducees, Women at the Tomb, Nicodemus/Joseph of Arimathea and the Executioners/Romans.
