    The Day Christ Died By Jim Bishop

    I have suggested this Great Book to all of my friends.
    I decieded to read it for Lent,but have continued to do so,each day.
    It is so easy to read,it is the Bible in story form.It moves very quickly.It also gives great backround and information, about the times the Crufixations took place,that I was not aware of before.

    I have started to read the Bible so many times,but never got to far.Iam sure this will take me all the way through with great understanding and enjoyment.

    I never realized The Day Christ Died was just that,A Day!

    Detailed and Deliberate.

    This hour-by-hour telling of Jesus's last days helped me to put the last day of Christ into perspective. The book is straightforward, reminding me a bit of the television series "Dragnet", with a "Just the fact's ma'am" attitude and timeline.

    It is also similar in many ways to the movie "The Passion of the Christ", giving another view into day-to-day life at the time of Christ.

    Gave me a new appreciation for Easter

    It is a wonderful book, espcially to be read around Easter time. It truly brought the crucifixtion story to life for me. I grew up in the church and have always known the story. Read it for yourself and see if you don't come away with a fresh appreciation for what Jesus did for us.

    EXCEPTIONAL BIBLICAL NARRATIVE

    The death of Christ is uniquely set as if contemporary reporters were there at the scene. Very similar to Bishop's narrative of JFK's death, this book seems more compelling because of the contrast between modern reporting and the chaos of the last day of Jesus' life in ancient times. It is probably the most interesting approach that I have ever read concerning Christ's crucifixion. Another book that is hard to put down.

    highly recommended

    An excellent and most inspiring book. It did not preach or attempt to convert. As one reader said, "IT'S THE FACTS AND ONLY THE FACTS" as in Dragnet the TV show. Excentally written. A great tribute to the author.

    The execution--we all know this had to happen, it was the way it

    The execution--we all know this had to happen, it was the way it was supposed to happen. But reading Mansfield's details of these events, the grusome details, made it so much more unbearable to hear. What Jesus endured is explained in intricate detail, from the prophecy, the betrayals, the conspiracy to be rid of this rebel, this so-called rabbi, and of his teachings of peace. Even after 2013 years, Mansfield reminds us of what we still need to hear, that this brutal execution is our enduring proof of Jesus' love for all of us, and this will live on forever.

    Time Travel is a Real Concept in this Book

    Reading this historic account of the death of Jesus was possibly the next thing to being an actual witness - - - it was that real. For those who are of this faith, the book will strengthen that faith; for those who just want a riveting historic story, this book meets the test. I have never read a Jim Bishop book that I didn't read more than once.

    Fantastic Book

    I found this book to be very inspirational. It was one of the best books I have read. There was lots of information about Jesus and the period he lived (customs,living conditions, etc.)It told in great detail how crucifictions were carried out and what Christ suffered. The book was done in a style that anyone could read. I read it in two days.....couldn't put it down!
