Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788013114, Perfect Paperback)

Written in an easy-to-present format, this captivating five-part series takes place in a courtroom, as attorneys present evidence based upon the Bible and tradition. Witnesses who are ""subpoenaed"" to testify include Peter, John, and Mary Magdalene.

The People vs. Judas Iscariot is a captivating five-part series for Lenten worship or group discussion. Detailed worship bulletins with an order of service are provided for each of the five presentations.

The People vs. Judas Iscariot is written in an easy-to-present format (no memorization required) and includes scripture readings that follow carefully defined themes. The homily takes the shape of a court hearing in which Judas undergoes his punishment phase. Prosecution and defense attorneys attempt to sway the judge and congregation with evidence based upon the Bible and tradition. Various witnesses are ""subpoenaed"" to testify, including Peter, John, Mary Magdalene, and others.

""It is not only well done for communication to the congregation, it is thoughtfully formatted for the busy pastor who will appreciate it ... carefully selected scripture readings, and even fully detailed service bulletins for the five weeks of Lent. Here you have a masterful blending of gospel proclamation with powerful drama.""
H.C. Krause, Professor Emeritus
