This is surely the most comprehensive study of the Passion narratives that has ever been done. Brown's work is solid, thorough and thoughtful. He makes his case, documents his rationale, and includes those who would disagree and why.

I completed Volume I during Lent this year, and will work through the second and final volume during Lent 2015. I'll also plan to work through his "Birth of the Messiah" in Advent this year, completing a set of books that have been on my bucket list for many years.

Read every page of this multiple times, and yes, I mention it because it is a feat! One of the best books ever.

Good, informative, and certainly appropriate for Lent, but just way too detailed for a casual reader like myself. I tend to give informative but really boring books 3 stars, so that's where I sit here.

880 pages of amazing, thorough, insightful scholarship and reflection on the passion narratives.... and Jesus isn't even on the cross yet. Need to get volume 2. Brown is, in my opinion, the most distinguished New Testament scholar!
