Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the Award-Winning AUTHOR of The Book of God-- Jesus' Passion, Revisited with the Emotion and Immediacy of a Master Storyteller As only a great storyteller can, Walter Wangerin takes his readers inside the story of Christ's passion. Drawn from the Gospel of Mark, Reliving the Passion translates the events--from the moment when the chief priests plot to kill Jesus to the Resurrection--into the realm of feeling, image, and experience. In richly personal detail, Wangerin helps us recognize our own faces in the streets of Jerusalem; breathe the dark air of Golgotha; and experience, as Mary and Peter did, the bewilderment, the challenge, and the ultimate revelation of knowing the man called Jesus. A perfect devotional for the Lenten season.

From the Author

Walter Wangerin Jr. first came to prominence as the award-winning author of The Book of the Dun Cow. He has since won many other awards and honors for his books, including the best-selling Book of God. Wangerin holds the Jochum Chair at Valparaiso University in Indiana, where he is writer-in-residence

Wangerin's writing style is so refreshing - it brings the story of Christ to life in a new and exciting way. The emotive writing style draws you in as the reader and you cannot put the book away - I read and re-read the crucifixion chapters and came away almost breathless with a renewed sense of what Christ went through for me! The cast of characters that were involved also come to life with all the passion and "realness" of that day.

This powerful book transports the reader to Jesus' last week on earth. Wangerin pulls the reader into the emotion and reality of the crucifixion and the events leading up to it. I felt convicted and moved by the sacrifice made on my behalf in a new way. Highly recommended!

This is my third year to read "Reliving the Passion". It is pure poetry at its finest and Walter Wangerin Jr. transports you back to the days leading up to and through the Passion. Add this book to you library and make it a tradition each year at Lent. Also check out his book for Advent!

This is a series of 40 Lentan devotions--actually very vivid and brilliant insights on the reality of Jesus' dying on the cross. I have a very large library, but I have read nothing better on this theme. I have purchased 6 additional copies as gifts--any will be getting more.

This is a Lenten devotional book. So provocative, and delves into the characters who were involved in the passion of Christ.
What were their thoughts, fears, concerns. Why did they do what they did? How did Peter feel, for example when he denied knowing Jesus.
The political climate at the time is described. I have had this devotion for several years, and now on my Kindle so I can read it every year, and understand more of the Love of God through Jesus for ME and for the whole world.
Thank you Walter Wangerin Jr. for your many books, that put me right there in each scene as though I was living it.

If you truly desire to re-live this time in Jesus' life, to get in touch at a deeper level and not just re-read the Passion story mindlessly, this book is a must for each and every Lent season. It will help you connect in a unique, meaningful way as Wangerin draws you into not only the days leading up to Easter, but also into specific moments giving you room to linger in them. It is best read as he suggests - unhurried and one reading per day starting with Ash Wednesday through to Easter. This is, indeed, a journey not to be missed!

Reliving the Passion

This is one of the best Lenten Devotionals that I have ever used. Each year it brings something fresh to me as each year I am in a slightly different place than I was the previous year.

Do you remember when you were a child and the Bible stories were alive and you could put yourselves in them? This takes you back to that place.

I highly recommend this book and have given copies to several of my friends. God bless all of you. May this book help you on your Lenten Journey.

I have been reading this book each lenten season since 1998. It helps to direct your thoughts to what Christ did for you on the cross. By the time Easter arrives, you are in a proper frame of mind, ready to worship and praise God for what he has done for us. I buy more copies each year to give away. Walter Wangerin has also written another book for the advent season, called Preparing for Jesus. The daily readings remind me of the One I am celebrating.
