A well researched amazing book about the high point of the Christian year. Certainly it challenges some of the conventional ideas about the events of this pivotal week in Christianity. Rather than challenge faith it invites the reader to deepen one's understanding of this week, leading to a deeper faith and better understanding of both the events of the week itself and what transpired afterwards - the beginning of the Christian church. This is not a book for those unwilling to be challenged in the way they view the events of this week. It is a book for those willing to engage in thinking more deeply about the meaning of this event in Christian history.

Excellent treatise on what Mark's gospel might have said. Takes the story of Jesus' last week as a set of planned moves to confront Imperial Powers (and injustice) and the collaboration at the top of Jewish religious leaders. If you are interested in the historical Jesus and can put aside blind faith, this is a fantastically good read that will set you thinking about the events that preempted the Crucifixion and Easter.

Surely one of the most profound and reflective treaties on the final days of Christ's life before his crucifion from which we all, those who profess and those who do not profess a faith. Should be treated for what it aims to do - instruct or reflect. Should not be discarded as 'yet another attempt' to convert the disbeliever but enhance or deepen the love of the faithfull for the person who they believe is their pathway to eternal life. More please

This is a really good read. It helps you to look at the last week with a different set of eyes, and opens up your thinking.

I got a great deal out of this - both hugely knowledgeable and personally challenging. Now look forward to the first Christmas and more

Interesting book and well written from 2 different authors although this does not spoil the "flow". Easy to read but informative. A good book for the general reader interested in historical facts of the passion story

A good read for Holy Week but I did not agree with all his opinions and have more faith in what is said in the Gospels than the authors appear to have.

A well written book examining in detail the events of the last week of Jesus's life as portrayed by the Gospel of Mark. For anyone who has been troubled by the inconsistances as portrayed in the four Gospels, it comes as a breath of fresh air. I wish I had read this 50 years ago - it might have saved 50 years of angst!
