Item Description...
The New Testament opens with four gospel accounts that introduce the reader to Jesus Christ. From the very beginning, the redemptive drama moves toward the cross. The final week of Jesus's life, Passion Week, takes up nearly 40 percent of the entire narrative. The canonical gospels provide four different perspectives on the life of Jesus. He is portrayed in this fourfold account as King and covenant keeper (Matthew), as obedient Son-servant (Mark), as the perfect Man among men (Luke), and as the eternal Son of God (John), the only person ever born whose central purpose in living is to die. The gospels are Passion narratives with extended introductions. This is the governing principle of the present work as Jesus moves toward the culmination of his saving mission. From early adumbrations to deepening shadows to direct predictions and finally to the detailed narratives of Passion Week, the gospels follow the Lord's inexorable journey to the cross. This synthetic study, which follows the life of Jesus in a chronological sequence while attempting to preserve the unique contribution of each of the four gospel accounts, draws upon the long-established tradition of harmonies of the gospels, dating back to Tatian's Diatessaron (AD 170). The ordering of the data follows, with minor rearrangements, The NIV Harmony of the Gospels edited by Robert L. Thomas and Stanley N. Gundry (San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1988). In The Passion of the Servant, eighteen chapters with thirteen maps trace the geographical context of Jesus's ministry. Biblical quotations are taken from the English Standard Version (ESV) except where otherwise noted. The chronology adopted in this work, one that assumes a spring AD 30 date for the crucifixion, is appended, along with a brief bibliography of works that have been particularly helpful to the author. The front cover of this book portrays the risen Lord instructing the two disciples near Emmaus that the events surrounding his death and resurrection fulfilled the sacred prophecies of the Old Testament (Luke 24:25-27).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The body of Christ is most fortunate to have such a refreshing focus on the attitudes of a Biblical leader. This is most needed when the ministry of Jesus Christ has been reduced to the business world's pragmatic approach and the re-defining of success. Don Howell, Jr. communicates clearly from a scholar's mind with a warm heart. Most books are either too academic or too warm and fuzzy at the expense of truth. This biographical analysis of eleven leaders in the Old Testament and seven in the New Testament manifests the most comprehensive grasp of subject matter this pastor has ever read, and yet it is expressed in the clearest of terms.

This offering is worthy of the best seminary classroom study and at the same time useful for an inexperienced Sunday School teacher's devotional reading. The beginning chapter might have been better placed at the end of the book so as to not discourage the uninitiated in a well reasoned Hebrew and Greek word study. But that aside, I have never read any book with which my mind agreed more or my heart rejoiced so much. For Christians in the "It IS about ME" generation, a suitable correction is afforded those open to growth and change. For faithful servants who have decreased so that Christ could increase, this is priceless encouragement.

The treatment is so thoroughly Biblical that no honest person can read it and conclude that the substance and essence of the book is just the author's opinion.

This is a GREAT Book. . .  Jul 5, 2004
I was so excited to learn that Dr. Howell had written a book on leadership! He was one of my professors when I was in seminary. He lives what he preaches and teaches! This book is a character study on the lives of many of the Old and New Testament heroes. Dr. Howell's clear and precise writing cause one to ponder his/her theology of leadership. He encourages his readers to make sure that their theology of leadership is thoroughly biblical and kingdom-oriented. There are an abundance of leadership books available, but very few of them do as good a job as Howell does when it comes to a truly biblical worldview. I am very happy with the book.
