Experience the sorrow and awe of Passion Week as best-selling author Dr. Herbert Lockyer offers meditations on the final days of our Savior. Walk with Jesus from Bethany over the dusty road to Jerusalem, to the sanctuary of the upper room, to the sanctity of the garden of prayer, into Pilate's judgment hall, up the torturous path to Golgotha, and finally into the glorious triumph of resurrection morning. Following in the footsteps of Calvary will fill your heart with praise for the One who died, rose again, and is alive forevermore.
When Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886-1984) was first deciding on a career, he considered becoming an actor. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind. Instead of the stage, God called Herbert to the pulpit, where as a pastor, Bible teacher, and author of more than fifty books, he touched the hearts and lives of millions of people. Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute's fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London. In 1955, he returned to England, where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States, where he spent the final years of his life in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son, the Rev. Herbert Lockyer Jr., a Presbyterian minister who became his editor.
