As with his other study series (The Journey, 24 Hours That Changed the World), David Hamilton has written a beautiful 6-part study of Christ's Last Words(from the Cross). A video, also available, with excerpts from sermons on these words extends each study beyond the book's printed words. I have found I learn something new or gain new insights from every one of his studies. A Leader's Guide is an excellent resource for preparing a group study on this book.

I liked this book it does an excellent job looking at the history of Jesus last words. It is however not as well written as other works by this author. I have come to expect more from Adam Hamilton. But I would still recommend this book to people who have read 24 Hours that Changed the World and wanted more in depth study of the cross.

Adam Hamilton is an excellent author and this book is great. Hamilton brings a unique perspective to the death and resurrection of Christ and reignites one's enthusiasm in studying through his words. Perfect book for Lent.

We have used this book for our Adult Lent Study all of this season. It is fantastic! It has changed many of our lives, and brought a new perspective to our knowing Christ. It also has beckoned us to put action to our discoveries, and DO something in our daily lives. Wow! I am still amazed at all we have learned. This book has healed two areas of my life specifically. If you want a great study for adults, or personal use, GET IT!

Gives new insights into what may have happened during the Crucifiction of Christ. The only thing that we really know is that Jesus "cried with a loud voice." Exactly what he said remains a mystery, so Hamilton's reflections are a good application for what is written.

We used this book at our Bible study before Easter. This book was filled with facts and information that many people fail to see on their own as they study the Cross and Christ's death.

Format: Hardcover
This is the first book I read by Adam Hamilton. I attended a conference at his church last year, but I didn't know much about him. After reading this book, I am grateful for Hamilton's warm, compassionate, and devotional writing.

Hamilton deals wich each one of Christ's final sayings from the cross, exploring their meaning and application to life. The book is particularly helpful as a devotional book leading up to Easter. Each chapter begins with a fictional first-hand account someone who watched Christ die. While these portions are not necessarily what actually happened, they provide a poignant and personal application that helps the reader better understand Jesus' words. Christ's dying statements were not his last, and the book closes with a discussion of Jesus actual final words -- the words that he spoke after his resurrection.

There were three things about the book that I really appreciated:
1. Absolute clarity. Rather than trying to be cute or clever, Hamilton strives to be clear.
2. Intensely devotional. Lots of application throughout.
3. Bold theology. Hamilton makes no attempt to water down his theology. He's unafraid of explaining the original languages to gain more clarity on Christ's final words.
At times, Adam Hamilton discusses the "deeper meaning" of Christ's words. His overall application is spot on. However, the language of uncovering a "deeper" or "hidden" meaning can be confusing for Christians who think that they must somehow arrive at a mystical deeper meaning when they read the Bible.

Overall, I highly recommend Final Words: From the Cross for anyone who desires a greater understanding of Christ's final words from the cross, and who cherishes a greater appreciation of His atoning death.
