What if you had been in Jerusalem the day that Christ was crucified? What would have happened to you in the immediacy of those turbulent hours? Let the eyewitnesses tell you what they saw, what they heard, and how they felt. This fictional account, based upon the events recorded in the Gospels, puts you inside the day that changed the path of human history.
See these accounts, not as prophetic utterances, but as one might view a stained-glass image or an icon, a work of imagination that allows you to peer into the hearts and souls of the people who were there.
Through the eyes of nineteen witnesses?as varied as the apostle Peter, Simon of Cyrene, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot, and the Lord's mother?you can experience the way God transformed the worst news imaginable into the Good News.
