This is the most interesting narrative of the last fourteen hours of Christ's earthly mission that I have read. As a Pastor for forty-seven years I read a lot of books about Christ, His earthly mission and the last hours of His life. This book is different.

In this fast-paced, compelling narrative, popular speaker and radio talk-show host Dawson McAllister examines the profound love and determined obedience Christ displayed in the wrenching last hours of His life on Earth. Join Jesus in the upper room with the disciples as He reveals His betrayer, in court before Annas and Pilate, under the stinging lashes as He's beaten and cursed, and on the long, slow walk to the Place of the Skull.

Through Dawson's storytelling skill, you will experience the Passion of the Christ through the eyes and hearts of His friends and enemies. Insights into key personalities and historical events will illuminate your understanding, but more than that: A Walk With Christ To The Cross is a life-changing read. If you embrace its truths, you will never be the same.

Why do I say this book is different? Because McAllister is a great storyteller. He tells this "Old, old, story" in a new and refreshing way. He gives a detailed account of Christ's journey to the cross. But you do not become bored with details that you may have taken for granted because you have heard them so many times. You will begin to live again in the power of this story.

So I invite you to come along with Christ to the cross, whether it is your first time or one of many.

Hey (as in Hi here in the South) Cliff--I did receive this and have been reading it. (I tend to read 6 books at a time so I end up reading none very fast ;-))I am about half way through it.

The book is different--I have enjoyed it. I do not really like his style of writing. I guess I am just not used to the writer's lingo as they

"'What's the charge?' They didn't want to say to Pilate, 'See this pathetic, bleeding Jew right here? He says He's god! And that makes us mad.'"

I get the feeling he is writing to a teen audience. Other than that-- if I ignore his lingo --I do get a lot of good out of it ;-).

Hi, again---well, as I have said , I have been enjoying the book, I am just not used to that style of writing. The fact that he has spent more than 20 years speaking to and for the American teenager is reflected in the style of the book. I am not saying thatthe style therefore bad--just that I do not enjoy that style. As you have said it would be really good for certain types of people. It is also good if you want some light reading that still is powerful enough to touch the heart. (hope I wasn't tooooooo negitive!)
