I just wrapped up Jim Bishop’s 1957 book, The Day Christ Died. Bishop’s book traces the 24-hour period leading up to the death and burial of Jesus. While reading the book, I decided to preach a series of messages called “24”. See 24:Jesus for more information about the series.

The book was absolutely fascinating. I recommend it to any Christian wanting to know the details of Jesus’ final hours. The book also provides a good overview of the Roman and Jewish world in the Palestine region. I was especially intrigued to learn more about the individual characters involved in the closing 24-hour drama of Jesus’ life. I will warn you that the book is lengthy and takes a great deal of concentration as you read.

This is book 10 of 52 of my quest to read 52 books this year. For more information on this quest please see One Book Per Week = 52 or this series of posts.
