Item Description...
The two most significant events in human history are the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And no one can uncover their meaning for today quite like Charles Swindoll. From the poignant interactions of The Last Supper, through the despairing events of Gethsemane and the seven last words of Jesus on the Cross, Dr. Swindoll challenges readers with a new perspective on the atoning work of Christ. And in Part Two of this inspirational work, the secret of how the resurrection of Jesus enables Christians to live triumphantly is revealed in a clear yet surprising way.

Publishers Description

Why did it please God that His Son was brutalized? Why does a loving God allow us to hurt so deeply? What made Jesus' death any different from thousands who died just as He did?

Darkness covered the earth that day. The sun fled. From noon until three, the darkness of death hovered over the hill where the Son of God was dying. As Christians, we know the story well―the nails in His hands, the thorns on His head, the gambling soldiers, the taunting thieves.

Charles Swindoll invites us to "return with me to those epochal days when our Lord walked into the awful darkness―which He did not deserve―only to arise into the sunlit dawn of triumph, providing us a victory from which we shall never know defeat." Go with him and you will find that, as only he can, Dr. Swindoll uncovers new meaning in the Cross and the Resurrection for those who face death and darkness today. His fresh perspectives on these core events of faith can help you see beyond the darkness to the new light of dawn.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very moving - a little rambling in places  Feb 18, 2004
Swindoll does an excellent job of outlining the events surrounding the crucifixion, and at times, I was moved to tears. However, it seems that he had a word quota, because at other parts of the book, he just rambles. I also was very disappointed at several anti-Catholic comments, which prevented me from sharing this book with my Catholic friends. I was very enlightened by the information in the book despite my critical comments.
An inspiration to the believer and the unbeliever  May 10, 2002
Charles Swindoll traces the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in his book, The Darkness and the Dawn. He goes into detail about the events leading up to the crucifixion and the hypocrisy of the trials which convicted Jesus. He then describes what a crucifixion was truly like and explains the 7 last words of Christ and their significance to believers. The second half of the book, title "The Dawn" describes the ramifications of Christ's sacrifice and what it means to those who accept it as truth. This is a convincing book for unbelievers and a good lesson for believers.
A book that will bring you to your knees  Feb 20, 2002
Dr. Swindoll has written a book of the last hours of Christ on this earth. Beautifully written, this vivid description of man's anger toward God is demonstrated by the torment that Christ endured. His humanness is there for us to touch, as God He is there for us to revere. This is truly a book that will drive you to your knees - David B. Kiner, Albany, NY
not a classic. but still pretty good  Apr 22, 2001
This book is not as substantial as it might first appear, since a great deal of its space - too much perhaps - is taken up with spiritual poetry. This can be finished easily in a week or less. I found the first part of the book had some very thoughtful and intelligently argued bible scholarship, especially the chapter on the Lord's suffering in the Garden at Gesethemane (sp?), and his precise knowledge of the original Greek is formidable. As the book progresses from the events preceding up to the crucifixion, to Easter, the literary style becomes increasingly anecdotal, evangelical, and sermonized. I found this latter part of the book rather wearing by the end. Had the scholarly tone been maintained throughout, the result would have been shorter, more cohesive, and perhaps less expensive. There was enough original insight to make this a worthwhile study, and at the half way point I was preparing to give this work an unqualified recommendation.

I think the front jacket is well designed and arresting, and serves its intended purpose.
