Publisher's Description

Some people see Jesus' death as a historical footnote, buried in the past. Christians understand it is much more than that, and know it has transformed their future.

But often we don't realise how much Jesus' last day should change our present, too.

Walking readers through Luke's Gospel, US pastor and well-known author Mike McKinley looks at the events of the last day of Jesus' earthly life. At each point, he pauses to marvel at the love Christ has for His people; and shows how Jesus' people can learn from His passion, His care, and His integrity.

This unique book is perfect for both new and mature Christians. While great for reading at any time in the year, it's particularly helpful to read during Lent or Holy Week.

    Mike McKinley's latest book is something of a departure from his previous two ("Am I Really a Christian?" and "Church Planting is for Wimps"). In "Passion" his writing is much more pastoral than personal as he shares from the Gospel of Luke the story of Christ's final day. His exposition of the the last three chapters of Luke is both expositionally sound and practical. The ten chapters of this small volume are the adaptation from a series of sermons shared with his church family, the final one providing a grand climax in the retelling of Jesus' resurrection. McKinley vividly portrays what our Lord endured in His suffering through appropriate descriptions and word-pictures. This book would make an excellent small group study companion that could easily be covered during the Lenten and Passion seasons. Near the end, McKinley provides several Bible reading plans to assist those who wish to study the events leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The book was edited and published by a British company, which is reflected in the spelling of certain words. "Passion" is a small volume, but it should not be read quickly. It is recommended that the reader pause at the end of each chapter and meditate upon each aspect of the Savior's final hours. It is hard to see one cannot be affected by reflecting upon what He endured on our behalf.

    Passion is the book to read when you need to be brought to tears again by the hours of Christ's Passion.

    My spirit so often dries out, and God's word seems to bounce off of me, and it takes a good hard rain of Scripture to soften it again. The story of the passion is a hard rain.

    And He walked away from them and fell to His knees and prayed, and his sweat was bloody on his face as he wrestled in prayer...

    "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me!"

    "Yet not my will, but Thine be done."

    "Are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"

    "Am I leading a rebellion, that you come after me with swords and clubs?"

    And seizing Him, they led Him away...

    "Woman, I don't know Him!" said Peter.

    They began mocking and beating Him. "Prophecy, who hit You?"

    "If you are the Christ, tell us!"

    "We have found this Man subverting our nation."

    "He claims to be King."

    "I find no basis for a charge against this Man!"

    "Crucify Him! Crucify Him! Crucify Him! Give us Barabbas!"

    "Father, Forgive them! They know not what they do!"


    "Jesus, remember me in your kingdom." "Today, you will be with me in Paradise."

    "Father, into your Hands I commit My Spirit."

    And they took down the Body, and wrapped it in linen and laid Him in The Tomb."

    "Touch Me and see. For a Spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have." And when He said said this, he showed them His hands and His feet.

    We see Jesus in Passion, God and Man, torn, beaten, bloodied, mocked, pushed beyond the limits of all suffering, and then going further. To the Cross.Taking the wrath of our Just God upon Himself. Dying so we could share His life. We see our desperate need for our LORD and Savior.

    Passion is nourishing book, that feeds our hearts as we meditate upon the final hours of Jesus life. It is a sweet reminder of Jesus' great love for us. It is sweet because He drank the bitter cup of wrath and death, and gave us forgiveness and resurrection joy.

    Passion looks at the character of Pilate, The Crowd shouting Crucify Him, Barabbas and the Thief on the Cross who mocked Him, and I realize- that is me. In my natural state I would have been in that crowd shouting the same thing. I would have been the thief demanding to know why Jesus doesn't save me from death instead of the thief saying After death, I want to be with You, Jesus.

    Passion follows the account of Luke's Gospel, and Old and New Testament passages are quoted to show how the pieces of time and history came together. It is beautiful to see how redemption came to us.

    The hymns at the end of the chapters say what I am feeling as I read, but don't have words to express. Which is why the hymns on the Cross were written, Mike McKinley explains, because we can't put the glory of Jesus in ordinary words.

    Crown Him the LORD of years, the potentate of Time,

    Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime.

    All hail, Redeemer, Hail! For Thou hast died for me!

    Thy praise and Glory shall not fail, throughout eternity!*

    *"Crown Him with many Crowns" by Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring

    This is a thoughtful book. Passion would be a wonderful choice for devotional reading. It is written so that you think about what you are reading, and meditate on the Scripture that begins each chapter. By page 20, I was whispering Thank you God, Thank you God, Thank you God for going through this for me.

    I am blessed to have received Passion from Cross Focused Reviews.
