Read in March, 2012 — I own a copy

The first thing that I have to say is that I felt like this book ended very abruptly. I wanted to hear more, either of Simon's thoughts or Jesus or anything. Knowing the story from the Jesus and disciples perspective I'm fine, but having this as an introduction to the Easter Miracle I think a child might be lost. It is neat however to think about the crucifixion from a passerby's perspective. Simon is just a man going through along on his day with the regular annoyances and joys. He didn't expect to help carry a cross and yet it changes him. Over all it is a special book and one that I would pull out again and again in the Lenten and Easter season.

*Thanks to Kregel for providing a copy for review.*
