Max Lucado provides his readers with a unique perspective regarding the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. The story is told from the perspective of a Roman solider named Claudius. He was assigned to work in Jerusalem for a year and thought that it would be a peaceful place to work. However, upon his arrival he had an uneasy feeling that would not leave him. Jerusalem was not the peaceful place that he imagined. Claudius soon found himself in a situation in which he did not desire. He was given the assignment to work at Golgotha the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. Claudius explains what he witnessed that day as well as the days to follow.
I love Max Lucado books and his relaxed writing style. He can say so much with so few words. This book is no exception. I really enjoyed this story along with the original artwork provided by world-renowned artist C. Michael Dudash. It was interesting to view the crucifixion and resurrection through a different set of eyes. I believe this is a good book to read whenever a reminder is needed of how much the Lord loves us.
