    Max Lucado was asked by an acquaintance in a coffee house about his faith. "What is it that matters?" the man asked. "Skip the periphery. Go to the essence. Tell me the part that matters." Years later, the answer had solidified for Lucado. The cross of Calvary. That's the essence. "If the account of the cross is true, it's history's hinge. ... If not, it's history's hoax."This book, then, is a search for the meaning of the cross. Special attention is given to the little details of the Golgotha scene. The words spoken from the cross, the thieves on either side, the graying mother at Christ's feet. No wonder they call him Savior.Next, the scene shifts from Jesus to the witnesses. All those who played a part, big or small. Finally, the resurrection.The book is flavored throughout with a number of personal stories. It’s highly inspirational, meant for spiritual encouragement. I confess I didn't read the whole thing; when it shifted gears into a study guide 2/3 of the way through, I shut down. Lucado is also a conservative believer, and the assumptions about the Bible’s historical accuracy and Jesus' divinity began to weary me. He writes as a friendly minister who assumes we share his traditional Christian outlook. I can't do that, and if the only way to appreciate the story of Jesus is to turn the whole thing into a supernatural religion, then I'm left in the cold.Three stars from me, but for another person at another stage in their life, I'm sure Lucado's uplifting writing style will hit the mark.

    Max Lucado follows Jesus' journey to the cross for us, and shows us His amazing humanity and divinity combined. No wonder they call Him the Saviour! This book was really good for me - it challenged me to go back to my basic beliefs and recognise how awesome God is.

    One of the best books on the life/death of Jesus that I've ever read!
