This is a book about the most dramatic day in the history of the world, the day on which Jesus of Nazareth died. It opens at 6 P.M.--the beginning of the Hebrew day--with Jesus and ten of the apostles coming through the pass between the Mount of Olives and the Mount of Offense en route to Jerusalem and the Last Supper. It closes at 4 P.M. the following afternoon, when Jesus was taken down from the cross. . . . The fundamental research was done a long time ago by four fine journalists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The rest has been added in bits and pieces from many men whose names span the centuries.

    " Excellent read. Couldn't put it down. Not ecclessiastical; historical, psychological, medical, tradition. EXCELLENT!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tressa | 12/31/2013

    " This is a wonderfully detailed hour-by-hour account of the day Jesus died. This book details the last hours of his life and suffering, and includes some interesting history about the culture at the time of his life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 12/11/2013

    " I read this book when I was in high school. It helped me to understand more clearly what Jesus did for me. What pain he must have felt on that cross? I have kept the book all of these years which tells you how good I found it to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/5/2013

    " Bishop's book is now somewhat outdated historically and archeologically, but it's still a great read to get the feel for the actual events of Holy Week. I try to read large portions of it each year on Good Friday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 12/1/2013

    " Read this book ages ago...but it was an interesting perspective and read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clay Davis | 11/21/2013

    " The best book about the time, place and events in history "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Orr | 11/13/2013

    " What was I doing reading this when I was 10? This not that easy to read. You do get a better idea of agony. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dottie | 9/19/2013

    " Written as reportage -- very grippingly told. One of my favorite writings with a religious theme and one I've read several times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 9/16/2013

    " This book is a story telling of the last 24 hours in the life of Jesus Christ, basically the passion of the Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 8/16/2013

    " An excellent addition to daily Lenten devotions. Incredibly detailed and descriptive narrative of the day Christ died, but the format allows for a little bit of reading each day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John McKelvie | 7/12/2013

    " Provides the historical and anthropological background to the passion story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene Ferland | 6/1/2013

    " Anyone who is interested in the hours leading to Christ's crucifixion will find this book riveting. This is the second time I have read Mr. Bishop's book during Lent and my stay in the hospital. How inconsequential my problems are in view of what Christ endured for all of us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 5/8/2013

    " There was too much filling in of the blanks and not enough factual evidence. In spite of this, however, he does a decent job of helping you to relive the day Christ died "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joann | 3/25/2013

    " This is an excellent book that brings you through,hour by hour, the time leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is very moving to read during Lent. Each year, I re-read parts of this book on Holy Thursday as part of my devotion during Adoration. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Penrose | 3/4/2013

    " Really interesting book that paints a good picture of what life was probably really like back then. I haven't read it in a long time, but it's one of those books I keep because I'd really like to revisit it, probably over and over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 7/23/2012

    " Historical rendition detailing the background of the story, telling about the culture and leaders of the day, and detailing all the characters in the story. Very interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carl | 5/23/2012

    " time slots much like the layout of John as he gives a daily report as events unfold leading to the death of Christ Jesus "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derron Ellis | 5/13/2012

    " Filled with lots of historical and cultural details about the birth, life and times of Jesus Christ. Some "pious speculation". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 5/1/2012

    " This book is a intense retelling of the last day of Christ, beginning at 6pm the day before the crucifixtion and ending at 4pm the day of the crucifixtion. The detail and intensity with which this is written was so impactful I would spend days or weeks between each chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rebecca | 4/29/2012

    " this is part of my lenten reading...when I get to it.I like the hour by hour format...conducive to bite size reading and meditation. I try to read each year at this time....do not think I have ever finished it, tho. "
