    1 thought on “Crucify!: Why the Crowd Killed Jesus”

    1. I went in skimming, slowed down to actually read what the author wrote, and came away impressed by how the author had put together things in the Gospels I hadn't fully thought through yet. If you can get a free copy on , it'll certainly make you think more about Jesus' uncomfortable and sin-challenging gauntlets thrown down at the crowds. If you can't get it free, I'd recommend buying it. It would be worthwhile to show to people who think that the Pharisees and the Sadducees were the only ones w [...]

    2. I don't usually review books because I think others do a much better job, but I wanted to give the author some props for this well written book. I liked the narrative style this book was written in and the insight into the psychology of both the Jewish leaders, Jesus and the disciples. Even though I've read the Gospels many times, I was still able to learn new things that I had previously overlooked. Whether you're a seasoned Christian, someone new to the faith or just merely curious about Chris [...]

    3. A Fresh Look at an Old StoryThis book broke my heart, brought me to tears and gave me a new perspective on story I've heard my entire life. Reading from a Christian standpoint I have never read a book that put gospels in the context of history and culture as this one did, leading me through Jesus's life not just as a story or teaching but as a search for what rang true and why.

    4. Fascinating and well researched details in this intriguing book not only invite readers into Biblical time and place, but also verify the legitimacy of Luke as a great historian, and of the other gospel writers as honest recorders of what they knew. Why don’t we hear of Jesus childhood – surely important to the mythology of such a great figure, if he were myth? Why don’t we hear of him living in Bethlehem as prophesied – wouldn’t this have been hugely important to the writers? Why does [...]

    5. When the author watched The Passion of the Christ, he began to wonder how crowds could sing and dance upon Jesus' arrival to Jerusalem on a Sunday, and then cry out for his crucifixion a mere five days later.This book begins with Jesus' ministry to set the scene and provide background information. It then focuses on His final days of life. Throughout the book, the author respectfully discusses how his views of Jesus and his contemporaries differ from those in Reza Azlan's popular book, Zealot: T [...]

    6. This was a really good read. It was eye opening for sure. As someone who has grown up in the church it puts things into perspective. It sure makes you look at what you would have done back in that time.

    7. A brilliant look at the greatest story ever told as this must be the best book I have read on the subject of Christ. It is exceptionally well researched and takes a fresh look at the gospels. I have read quite a number of books on this subject but I must admit to being absolutely blown away by this book. Mr Stoner really brings the times alive, the poverty and the disease and the healing in Christs short ministry. This book has to be read.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

    8. Amazing bookThis book is the best I have read on the crucifixion. It made it so vivid like I was there. Really gives the motivations of the leaders and in the end the crowds. I am so thankful I was led to it. I just can't say enough. Thank you Mr. Stoner for gifting us wit it.

    9. Decent book with an interesting perspectiveOn Palm Sunday, the crowds cheered for Jesus. On Friday morning, they screamed for His death. What could cause such a dramatic change in their attitude toward this young rabbi? This is the central question of Stoner's book, and to answer it he examines the entire life of Jesus. In doing so, he points out numerous instances where Jesus raises expectations and hopes only to dash them. At the heart of this repeated rise and fall of the crowd's hopes is a p [...]

    10. This book was such a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to further their knowledge of the Gospels, even if you have read them countless times there is always more to discover and this book will ad you in that discovery.The book paints a strong and vivid picture of the times Jesus was living in and why what He said and did caused such offence.The author draws you into understand and reflect on the accounts of the Gospels in ways you might not have reflected on befo [...]

    11. First Row Witness/Testigo en primera filaThat's what I fell when I was reading "Crucify" ,that I was watching the Pasion unfold in front of my eyes,with all of the details of the front row witness.I love itEso es precisamente lo que senti cuando estaba leyendo "Crucifiquenlo",era como un testigo en primera fila observando la Pasion del Senior desarrollandose delante de mis propios ojos con todos los detalles.Me a gustado mucho y lo recomiendo (es en ingles)

    12. PowerfulThis book sets out to answer an important question, how could a people who celebrated Christ's arrival on Palm Sunday call for his death less than a week later? The arguments are well reasoned and backed up by scriptures and rebuttals for counterargument. It was tough reading emotionally but very important.

    13. thought-provokingWhy did everyone turn against Jesus? Why did Jesus go out of his way to obscure his identity and mission? This book goes through his life exploring these questions, and provides reasonably satisfactory answers. Gave me a few new ideas. Definitely worth reading.

    14. A must readmuch of this I had either read or had been told by a Jewess I once worked for. Understanding the different aspects of a situation is necessary to truly understand the situation. This book opens up many avenues that I don't think many are aware of.

    15. Great book concerning the scandal of grace and why thousands of adoring people yelled crucify in the end.

    16. Stunning!A true work of art about the most pivotal days in human history. A secret is brought to light and answered with the revelations in this book.

    17. Helps one to understand who by and how Jesus was crucified. Well written, well thought out. I will be rereading soon.
