Genre: Non-Fiction
Publisher: Waterbrook Press
Released: March 21, 2006
201 pages
About the Book:

Sit in the Courtroom as the Savior Testifies.

Witness the disturbing display of events as Jesus stands against His detractors and the unbridled might of the Roman Empire. In this unsparing up-close account, you will experience the greatest injustice in history — the trial and punishment of Jesus of Nazareth — and gain a fresh appreciation for the enormity of the stakes.

His innocence convicted Him .

But you will also travel with Jesus in the years leading up to His final trial as He reveals eternity’s greatest truths in response to hostile questions from the religious leaders of His day.

· Can you prove that you’re the Messiah?
· How can you defend a woman caught in adultery?
· What does it take to reach heaven?
· How can we know God?
· What is truth?

Whether you embrace the claims of Christ or your verdict is still out, you’ll gain provocative insight into the driving passion behind the carpenter from Nazareth. As you take a juror’s seat in this monumental case, you’ll realize that as Jesus answers His accusers, He’s not just talking to them, He’s talking to you.

My Rating & Thoughts:    

I took my time reading this book to absorb what I was reading. The first and last chapters are a fictionalized version of the Biblical account of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus from the point of a Roman officer, the in-between chapters are insights into the teachings and examples of Jesus with Mr. Singer's personal experiences or research added in. The details of the crucifixion was hard to read, but really exposed Jesus' love and sacrifice for us. I enjoyed reading some of the personal stories that Mr. Singer shared but a lot of the other information felt like it was a textbook sharing works from others (the sources are credited). The first and last chapters are the ones that I will remember. 

(I purchased my copy of this book; opinions expressed 
in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
