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 (2004).
