A beautifully-presented, tabletop book in hardback edition with full colour throughout. Looking beyond His approaching suffering to glory, Christ “stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem” (Lk 9.51). Approximately six months later, in fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy, He rode triumphantly into Jerusalem upon an ass, declaring Himself to be Israel’s Messiah. This book seeks to capture, in roughly chronological order, what took place within that six-month period. During this stage of the Lord’s public ministry large crowds followed Him, many professed to believe on Him, and there was a growing expectation that the Kingdom of God was about to be established on earth. At the same time, He faced increasingly dangerous opposition. Despite this, the Saviour persisted on His course, retaining a joyful disposition and a vibrant personal prayer life. He taught His disciples how to pray, spoke candidly to friend and foe about His approaching sufferings, warned of eternal punishment, exposed the danger of riches, explained that true greatness is self-sacrificial service for others, and assured His disciples that no sacrifi ce they made for Him would go unrewarded. Every word which He spoke and every step He took in His journey to Jerusalem glorifi ed God and displayed His moral excellence.

If you are attracted to this book by its colourful, hardback cover you will not be disappointed by the high quality of its spiritual content, which is solid, expository, and practical. Arranged in short, byte-sized chapters, covering a broad range of topics it is easy to dip in and out as necessary in a “coffee table” book. The exposition is incisive, and the style is pleasing with alliteration, quotable quotes, and chapter summaries. Perhaps a final chapter on the Lord’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem would be a bonus and fitting conclusion to an excellent book that provides a most useful overview of the Lord’s life and teaching during His journey to Jerusalem.
