"This is a book about the most dramatic day in the history of the world, the day on which Jesus of Nazareth died. It opens at 6 P.M.—the beginning of the Hebrew day—with Jesus and ten of the apostles coming through the pass between the Mount of Olives and the Mount of Offense en route to Jerusalem and the Last Supper. It closes at 4 P.M. the following afternoon, when Jesus was taken down from the cross. . . . The fundamental research was done a long time ago by four fine journalists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The rest has been added in bits and pieces from many men whose names span the centuries."—from the Foreword

I remembered reading this during a highly religious period while I was in high school. In fact, I was weighing whether or not I had a religious vocation at that time. With that in mind, I decided to re-read it this year as Easter approached.The book didn't match my memory completely, but I appreciated the the detail into which Jim Bishop went and the historical context into which he placed the events. But I didn't appreciate some of the what I interpreted to be his posturing.All in all, though, it was well worth re-reading. But I doubt that I'll return to it for a third time.read more
