Raymond E Brown is a super scholar and writer on Scripture. This book, like his other short surveys of the Nativity, the Passion and the Community of the Beloved Disciple, is a very good read and opens fuller perspectives on the topics covered. Not all of us can see the events of the four gospel accounts so comprehensively and Brown is a guide I would strongly recommend.

One of a series of seven small books by the late Raymond Brown: distilled scholarship. I have given the set as gifts in the past.

An Excellent Summary of Brown's Perspective on the Passion 1 Mar 2006
By Timothy Kearney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A CRUCIFIED CHRIST IN HOLY WEEK is a small summary of the late Father Raymond Brown's two volume THE DEATH OF THE MESSIAH. While such a book, a booklet in comparison cannot be more than just a summary of what the two volume set includes, it is perfect for the student who wishes top be introduced to Brown's major thoughts regarding the death of Jesus or for the preacher trying to recall Brown's salient points while preparing a sermon or homily. The book is divided into four chapters which tell of each evangelist's focus in the Passion narrative and concludes with some thoughts regarding the Passion itself, and the strengths and weaknesses of the composite view of the Passion we are accustomed to when we combine the four Gospel passion accounts and make them into one story as well as concerns regarding the misinterpretation of the passion and its connection to anti-Semitism.

As I mentioned earlier, this volume will be perfect for a student or a person involved in preaching. It could also be used my Bible study groups that are looking at the Passion narratives. Browns observations could certainly lead to lively discussions. It would also be a great guide for anyone who may be taking a closer look at the passion, especially during lent, and help the reader enter into a deeper understanding of Jesus'' Passion and its meaning for us today.

"the sanest possible book you could read" about this topic 2 Mar 2004
By David Jodrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These are not my views, I must admit, but rather those of Rev. Mark Stanger, an Episcopal priest at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral. In an interview published at salon.com in January 2004, he said,
'If people want to read something sensible about this whole thing, Raymond E. Brown -- he died about a year ago -- was a great, great Catholic scripture scholar. He wrote a mega-work called "The Death of the Messiah" in 1994 -- two volumes, 1,600 pages. But then he digested [it] down and did a little tiny popular work, a $5 paperback, 71 pages, called "A Crucified Christ in Holy Week." I think that would be the sanest possible book anyone could ever read.'

An Excellent (Very) Brief Overview of the Four Passion Narratives 15 April 2007
By Matthew K. Minerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In brief, Fr. Brown's collection of essays (based on his larger work, "The Death of the Messiah") is an excellent introduction to an obvious question of exegesis raised every year during the Easter season. Each liturgical year, Catholics are exposed to an important anomaly in the passion narratives of the Gospels as a synoptic Passion account is read on Palm Sunday and the Johannine Passion account is read on Good Friday. Through this lens, Fr. Brown approaches each narrative in order to shed light on its own specific characteristics.

In brief form, Fr. Brown analyzes the heart of each narrative, casting its varied events into the light of that heart. While the brief text does not allow for much exegetical depth, it does allow for a general relief to be given to each narrative. He also extrapolates possible community orientations which led to the presentation in each narrative. While this remains somewhat peripheral in the short book, it is of utmost importance to the final synthesis which stresses the importance of the multiple facets of the narratives. In addition to this, Fr. Brown attempts to relate the passion narratives to their larger place in their given Gospels but fails to find much room to do so within the confines of each brief essay.

Overall, the text is an excellent, brief read for all looking to more fully understand the multiple faces of the Passion accounts and the beauty of the reflections off each of those faces.

Flor serious Christians who see Holy Week and the Triduum as the most imnportant time of the year, this book is a must. For those who keep the Holy Thursday Vigil it will guide their thoughts into a deeper appreciation of Christ's death and passion.
Raymond Brown at his best 25 May 2014
By Avid Reader #9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Raymond Brown was able to be succinct in this series from his life's work of volumes and volumes of text. Here he brings it home in bite sized portions that gets to the heart of Christ's ministry, message, and mission.
