Gene Edwards has a unique way of presenting the account of Jesus's crucifixion - an accounting as it would have been as seen through the eyes of Jesus. The complete and utter despair that He faced when separated from His Father by taking onto Himself the entirety of humanities sin.
This is an eye opening book offers the reader a new view of the ultimate gift of God's love and His triumph over the grave. The second part to this book is blending of the four Gospel narratives in a chronological story of the day Christ was crucified.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.
This was an interesting read. It is Christ telling his last few days of life. There is one kind of strange part but everything else sounded plausible. I received a copy from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.
The Day I Was Crucified by Gene Edwards is a powerful retelling of the crucifixion of Jesus by Jesus. Focusing on the beautiful display of Jesus power to lay down his life willingly, obediently and lovingly; it will open the gospel in a way that only Gene Edwards can do. Especially during the time of Lent, this book is a fantastic way to not only share the gospel message but to create meaningful discussion. It is a tender description of the last moments of Jesus life upon the cross and his resurrection thereafter. The Day I Was Crucified will reveal the beautiful gift of salvation all over again.
I received this book from the Book Club Network and Destiny Imagine Publishers in exchange for my honest review which Ive provided here.
The Day I Was Crucified is a life changing book. It made Christ's crucifixion more real to me. There were things in there that I had never really paid attention to before such as Christ sweating blood actually making him unrecognizable to some people. It was in scripture all the time, but I never understood it before. I particularly appreciated the end where the author put all four gospels together to tell the crucifixion story. This book is a must read!
