This book captivated my attention from the first page. I read it while walking, stayed up late and awoke early to dive back in. My walk with Christ is still in its early stages and I see how far I have come already and long for the days to come. This is the first book I read by Max Lucado and I will surely read more. I've already purchased a few and can't wait to read them. I have ready many Christian books, but not one time have the words seemed as though they were written for me and jumped off...more

A walk through the last week of Jesus life on earth...from riding into Jerusalem on a donkey and the crowds lauding Him, to the overturning of the temple money changer's tables, to the betrayal of one of His closest friends, and the garden and trial. Containing the works that occured during the week...the cursing of the fig tree. The pressure Christ must have felt as he neared the end and finally on the cross, the angels were silent...and He could have called on them to save Him.
Max Lucado walks you through Christ's last week on earth. Flavored with stories from Lucado's life, the star of the show is Christ as He takes the final journey into Jerusalem and to the cross to redeem mankind. Even though it is more of the type of book that would be VERY meaningful during LENT, there is something to be said about reading a LENTEN story as one truly realizes why Christmas and Advent are important.
Hmmm... I bought this years ago and decided to reread it... quite honestly I didn't remember a single bit of what I read before. Anyway, I didn't find this partcularly good... there were some good stories, but in general most of them tended a bit to sentimentality, and felt a bit draggy (which is bad consideringeach chapter was 5-6 pages)... So yeah 3/5 stars... not great, not bad, so-so.
Com muita sensibilidade, este livro vai ajudá-lo a entender os últimos dias de Cristo na Terra. Você vai perceber como aquela semana foi especial em cada palavra, gesto e evento. Jesus caminhava firme para o seu principal objetivo: a morte. Uma vida singular. Uma morte sem igual. Um propósito eterno.
This was a good book to read during Lent: it chronicled the last week of Jesus, asking the question "What does a person do in their last days, knowing those are the last days?" Very easy, very quick to read, and it made me think a lot about what Jesus did those days, and what it matters to me now.
