I both liked and didn't like this book. From the title, I expected an account of Jesus's last week on earth (prior to his crucifixion) and while that is covered, it is done in such a way that in some cases, I struggled to figure out what part of that week the author was using for his message.

Chapters follow thru Jesus' last week, each day Friday - Sunday. Includes Study Guide starting on p. 195 with Biblical references. Thoughtful and easy to read presentation.

Very powerful and griping. Like all other Max Lucado books, he brings the story to life. You not only read the story of Jesus Christ's last week, you experience it with you. You follow in his steps that whole week and see what that final week was really like. A very good book that I would recommend to anybody, Christian or not. ( )

All Max Lucado's books are well worth the the time spent reading them, and they don't require much time, because once you pick it up you can't but it down. This one was very special and required a secone read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088070487X, Hardcover)

It is the final week of Jesus' life. All of heaven watches. It is the long-awaited week, a week when no angel dared sing. A hush fell over heaven as Jesus faced his final days. Note the firmness in his walk. Hear the conviction in his voice. Witness the courage of his deeds. See his passion . . the Savior who will not give up his children until they are found. See his power . . the God who will not tolerate hollow religion.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way he dies. In the last week of his life, Jesus deliberately sets his face toward Jerusalem--and certain death. This is no ordinary week. Even the angels are silent as they ponder the final days of Jesus Christ. He walks determinedly to the holy city, angrily into the temple, wearily into Gethsemane, painfully up the Via Dolorosa--and powerfully out of the vacated tomb.… (more)
