  • This is a rich, imaginative and very informative companion to reading the story of the passion of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. In six chapters, Matthew Byrne takes the reader from the Last Supper to the burial of the Lord adding in all the background colour and detail which makes the story come to life in all its horror and sadness.

    He also draws very interesting pen-pictures of many of the characters involved from Judas, to the High Priest to the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. Ideal reading for Lent of Year C.

    This book encourages us really to engage with not only St Lukes account of the Passion, but with the One at the centre of it all. It is a gentle book allowing a real encounter with the Crucified Christ to take place. It sets the scene and evokes a response of faith without defining too closely how each individual may respond. I look forward to using this book as part of my own observance of Holy Week 2004.
