The reviewer reported that this book is moving and is one of the best Christian literatures available. One reader said that it was indeed a good book to read and life changing reading it from the perspective of Jesus. It definitely outshines watching videos and hearing the story from others.

A reviewer felt that this Christian novel was rushed by the author. This reviewer liked the other works of the author and was able to compare the pace of the books. For him, he felt that this book was not very dramatic as the author wanted to get to the scene where Christ was crucified. The reviewer also went on to say that those that gave their reviews on this book were not very accurate in their claim that this is a classic novel as it is fairly new in the market. In addition, just as mentioned earlier, he felt that the story was not as moving or as powerful as the other works by the same author.
There are many videos and books out there which share about the crucifixion of Christ from their own perspective. Here, it is unique in that the author tries to come from the perspective of Christ Himself which makes it powerful as he shared his feelings and thoughts on that day. Christians noted that they could see the power of the cross in this book. We believe that this is a great book for all and believe that not only is this is a good book that will entertain, but that this is a novel which is heartwarming and transforming. This is a recommended buy for those looking to complete their bookshelves of the different voices of what happened and what was experienced on the day Christ was crucified.
