This is an excellent book to read and study in the weeks preceding Easter. Adam Hamilton takes you to Jeruselum, via the companion DVD, and you become one of the desciples, one of the crowd, stand in Pilate shoes, etc so you can examine yourself in every part of Jesus' 24 hours prior to the crucifixion. .. how would have reacted, would you have been strong enough to resist the pressure of the crowd, ARE you strong enough to resist the pressure of the crowd today ??? I would recommend this book for Lentan study groups or individuals who want go grow in their knowledge of the love of our Lord.
I have read and studied this wonderful guide for the past 5 years. Next year I have already decided I will get the study guide to go with it. By the way, the only reason I purchased a new copy is I now need large print so I passed my regular print to a friend.
After great success with "The Journey" as a parish Advent program, I chose this book for a 7-week Lenten study. Adam has wonderful insights and the accompanying DVD puts the class right there in Jerusalem. The Advent class participants were "over the moon" with "The Journey." I'm certain the Lenten class will have the same reaction. If you are a Christian looking for inspiration and spiritual development this Lent, I can't recommend "24 Hours" highly enough. Read it and you will come away changed.
