Meditations on the story of Holy Week and the things Jesus did, from his entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday until his arrest on Maunday Thursday. One extraordinary week. Jesus rides a colt into Jerusalem. He shows righteous rage in the temple. He eats with the wrong sort of people. He lets a woman anoint him with oil. He washes his disciples' feet. He breaks bread and shares wine. He prays passionately in the garden. He allows himself to be arrested. Jesus stands in the prophetic tradition of those who embody what they teach. The things he did were carefully planned. And in this riveting book, Stephen Cottrell draws out their political and religious significance as Jesus moves towards his greatest and final act - his death and resurrection.

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Stephen Cottrell

Stephen Cottrell is Bishop of Chelmsford and was formally Bishop of Reading. He has written widely about evangelism, spirituality and discipleship. Among his recent books are Walking Backwards to Christmas (2014), The Things he Carried (2008), The Things He Said (2009), The Nail: Being part of the Passion (2011) and Christ in the Wilderness: Reflecting on the paintings by Stanley Spencer (2012), all published by SPCK.

Walking Backwards to Christmas (2014) Both beautiful and useful . . . All [the first-person narratives] are rendered in glorious physical language, a strange but apt mix of Scripture and modern idiom. The result is revelatory. * The Tablet * Christ in the Wilderness: Reflecting on the paintings by Stanley Spencer (2012) Beautifully written. * The Lance * The Nail: Being part of the Passion (2011) This little book will be worth its weight in gold for clergy or lay people looking for inspirations for Good Friday services. * Expository Times * The Things He Said: Reflections on Jesus' sayings between resurrection and ascension (2009) Energizing to read, conveying the Easter story in imaginative and atmospheric writing. * Church of Ireland Gazette * The Things He Carried: A journey to the cross. Meditations for Lent and Holy Week (2008) In these studies the author takes no prisoners. I felt as if he'd grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and made me follow Jesus every inch of the way . . . * Christian Prayers and Resources * Spiritually probing and biblically insightful. * The Church of Ireland Gazette * An effective and energetic extended meditation. * Methodist Recorder * A lively and challenging exercise of the sanctified imagination. * Church Times * Thought provoking and challenging. * Reform *
