- A Unique perspective of Jesus' crucifixion by Kimberly on 12/3/2015
I was very moved by this book of an account of Christ's crucifixion from his eyes. This fictionalized account of this time helped me to feel like I was right there watching the reactions and the emotions. It was able to take the four gospels and combine them in a way that I have not seen before.
It helps the reader to remember that Jesus was in human form during this time, so of course he would have seen it from this perspective with His Heavenly Father along with him. .
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to feel the love that God gives to each of us.
I was given this book by Destiny Image and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
- Let Jesus’ Death and Resurrection Change You by Jeanie on 2/21/2015
This is a book like no other that I have read – the depiction of what author Gene Edwards sees as Jesus’ view of the hours leading up to His death and resurrection. The battles in the spiritual realm, His suffering in prayer, His ultimate suffering, death – and then, victory! It is a must read for mature Christians, those who understand that the spiritual battles demonstrated could be especially considered during Lent, during the week commemorating Christ’s death and resurrection, or any other time of year.
We as sinful human beings truly cannot know what Jesus experienced through those excruciatingly long, dreadful hours, but what we see from the heart of this author will change forever the understanding of the crushing weight of our sin cost God, cost Jesus. The physical suffering of our Lord was not emphasized to the degree I might have anticipated. Instead, we see the demonstration of the possible immense spiritual battles that our Savior, Jesus, may have endured. For me, for my sins. Could I ever see a sin as little after reading this? I hope not!
The Day I Was Crucified is great literary work of this century to be sure; the author’s insight into God’s will for mankind – because He loves us so much more than we can imagine, includes scenes and struggles that I never considered. He includes the depravity faced by Jesus as inflicted the enemy of our soul and his demons, and the last enemy to be overcome – death. Not merely physical death, but the eternal damnation of our soul if we reject who Jesus is and what He has done.
If there are things included that might seem to go against what you have been taught before or what your church teaches, I would urge you to remember that the ultimate truth that the Lord wanted us to know this side of heaven is in the pages of Scripture. Remember that Part One of this book is not scripture, but a previously unexplored view of the spirit realm that those who were present at Christ’s crucifixion were not privy to. Remember that nothing Jesus endured was a surprise to God – why else would Jesus have suffered so grievously in prayer the night before His death?
And as you consider the battles of Part One, you will find in Part Two a skillful compilation of the four Gospel accounts of Jesus’ trials, crucifixion, and resurrection. While the version of Scripture is not noted, it is for many of us the very familiar truths of Jesus’ final hours before His death, and His resurrection from death. To read these verses together is as if the Holy Thursday through Easter Sunday scriptures were all part of one long, tragic, victorious day.
We are gifted through this to have a glimpse of how great God’s love is for us, how great Jesus’ love for and obedience to His Father is. Now that we have so much more to reflect on then before, we also may consider how we live in the light of God’s love and Jesus’ glorious resurrection. I highly recommend this book to mature Christians of any age, and Christians who desire the growth in faith that might be imparted as they understand the outrageous sacrifice Jesus made on their behalf. Take your time with it. Reflect on what is truth in scripture, as well as the suggestions of what Jesus fought for so mightily for you as seen through the eyes of Gene Edwards. It can change your life.
With a grateful heart, I received a copy of this book through the “For Readers Only” group at The Book Club Network, in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
- Very good book by Ramona on 2/14/2015
The title of this book really caught me: The Day I Was Crucified: As Told By Christ Himself. How could I not pick this book up to read it? I have read and studied Christ’s life and crucifixion in different Bible studies and feel like I have been at the crucifixion to the best of my ability. This book was a good addition to those studies.
I have learned, throughout my bible studies and readings, that the story of Christ’s death never gets easier to read or to try to understand. The part that keeps me going is that I know the true ending to this story and it is far from sad.
One of the many phrases that caught me in this book is as follows: “I do not know who I am. I know not where I am. I do not know what I am, but I sense I am not what I used to be----and that I am wonderful and beautiful.” And to that I say amen. This book also helped me realize again, that I am just a human. I am one of those humans who Christ died for—wow. He died for me. It is hard to believe that Christ actually died so I could be free. How wonderful of the author, Gene Edwards, to put that so eloquently in this book.
