Not quite what I was expecting,
This review is from: The Weekend That Changed the World (Paperback)
On the whole I have to say that I found 'The Weekend That Changed the World' by Peter Walker to be an interesting read. It is a book about the Resurrection and the various theories as to where it took place, did it actually take place and it's relevance today. There has been some good research done by the author and he certainly let's you know exactly what he thinks happened.
I don't usually comment about other people's reviews but I have to disagree with the one review I did read as I found the tone very preachy towards the end and for me the book definitely suffers as a result. I think that Peter Walker started off cleverly by making sure that it was up to the reader to draw their own conclusions but then his own interpretations of the events took over and he lost some of the balance he had managed to attain earlier. Many of the things that he talks about certainly make you think though and by far the most interesting section of the book was the theories about the actual location of the tomb of Jesus.
I quite liked this book to be fair. It is interesting for the most part and there are several nice colour photos. It's just a pity that it lost it's way towards the end.
