Excellent treatment of the most important week

"Palm Sunday to Easter" (Rose Publishing, 2014) is easily one of the best pamphlets I've encountered. As the title suggests, it covers the most important week in history, and it does so with simplicity and elegance, two traits I've come to expect from Rose Publishing.
A day-by-day timeline (with Scripture references) details the most important events of the week, and connects them to a map of Jerusalem. Following is a "clock" of sorts, which chronicles the final hours of Jesus' life, from His trial before Pilate to his burial. Another helpful feature shows Roman, Jewish and modern time to make sense of the sequence.
A sketch of a Jewish tomb, photos of artifacts related to crucifixion and ancient tombs, a charts of prophecies made by Old Testament prophets and fulfilled by Jesus, and a summary of the medical effects scourging and crucifixion would have had on Jesus' body rounds out the pamphlet.
The pamphlet is solid, thoroughly biblical, and helpful for both pastor and student. I highly recommend it. (Full disclosure: I received a review copy of this booklet from Rose Publishing. However, the view expressed here is mine.)
