Description

This richest series of studies on the sufferings and death of Christ is one of the great devotional classics of all time. Its dramatized discourses majestically and reverently interpret and portray the last days of our Lord--the last supper, Gethsemane, the trials, and the cross.
The vividness and beauty of Krummacher's style, together with his crystal-clear simplicity, make this a volume entirely free from theological verbiage, and suit it for the average Christian. At the same time it is an incomparable source of teaching and preaching material for the advanced student of the Word of God. It throws brilliant new light on every detail of the last week of Christ's earthly ministry. For example, seven of the fifty-three chapters are devoted to the seven words from the cross, revealing greater riches of truth than are usually bound in books exclusively devoted to this one subject.
The author gives the believer inspiring motivation for reflection on the suffering Savior. "Here we learn to understand what is implied in the words: 'Who spared not his own Son, but freely gave him up for us all.' 'The Lord hath laid on him the iniquities of us all.' 'I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.' 'Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.' 'God made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.'"
"From the most appalling scene the world ever witnessed, a paradise of peace springs forth. From the most ignominious sufferings, we see the most glorious triumph emerge; and from the most dreadful of deaths, a divine and never-fading life arise. . . . When the consolation of human affection no longer reaches the heart, may He then accompany us in our solitary path, in His purple robe and crown of thorns, and all that is dark around us will be changed into heavenly light and glory!"
