Insight Into The Most Important Day For Christians
24 Hours That Changed The World by Adam Hamilton is an important book for Christians to read because it thoroughly examines the 24 hour period before Jesus Christ was crucified to save the world. This book goes past the surface aspects of the Last Supper, praying in the garden, betrayal and death on the cross to present the underlying cultural and spiritual significance of Jesus Christ’s last day in his earthly body.

Although I have been a Christian for my years and know the majority of the content outlined in this book, there were quite a few cultural aspects that I had failed to understand when reading through the gospels that were explained beautifully.

The narration was solid, I don’t remember thinking it was bad but it wasn’t particularly outstanding either but this is fine because the focus should be on the content of the book, not the person reading it.

This audio book is a fine read, especially around the time of Easter when we are asked to reflect on what Christ did for us on that Roman cross all those years ago.

This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. More information can be found about this and other Christian audio books at christianaudio.com.

Informative and Inspiring
Each of the four gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - dramatically slow down during the last week and day of Jesus' life. Adam Hamilton, pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, traveled to the Holy Land while studying the final day of Jesus' mortal life to uncover why. The result is this readable, informative and inspirational account of "24 hours that changed the world."

This book will add few new insights to pastors and others familiar with an academic study of the historical Jesus, this is an excellent resource for most lay people.

The audio narration is adequate, neither riveting nor tedious. I would prefer if Hamiton himself had read his text, but this narration is suitable.
