Item Description...
This is a rich, imaginative and very informative companion to reading the story of the passion of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. In six chapters, Matthew Byrne takes the reader from the Last Supper to the Burial of the Lord adding in all the background colour and detail which makes the story come to life in all its horror and sadness. He also draws very interesting pen-pictures of many of the characters involved from Judas, to the High Priest to the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. Ideal reading for Lent of Year C (2004).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A companion on the way  Nov 18, 2004
The Columba Press often presents wonderful, short volumes for contemplation, reflection and spiritual growth, and this volume by Matthew Byrne is no exception. This book follows in some ways the same story that the film 'The Passion of the Christ' followed, save that this follows directly from the biblical witness of the Gospel of Luke, from the feast of the Last Supper (Luke 22) to the crucifixion and burial of Jesus (Luke 23).

It is somewhat sobering to realise that this story, all-important to most if not all Christians throughout the world and throughout history, is contained in a mere two chapters of Luke (with parallels, of course, in other gospels; Matthew and Mark also take only two chapters each for the story). Byrne does not try to compare the gospel stories here -- the reader is left to do so (or not) on her or his own. It is not intended, as per the author's own admission, as a critical exegesis or scholarly investigation, but rather a reflection on the feelings and insights that derive from the story, with some attention given to historial, political and cultural issues around the text. These six chapters originated from a series of radio broadcasts, expanded somewhat to take advantage of the greater flexibility of print media.

Byrne has a gift for description. Perhaps the fact that radio broadcasts had to paint visual images in the imaginations of the listeners helped Byrne to craft the text. He goes into good detail about the events and people without overpowering the reader with unnecessary detail. He introduces information to fill in the gaps, and gives possible explanations about what people could be thinking at different times in the narratives, but always stops short of insisting that his interpretation, or any other, must be the one followed.

Byrne's writing is clear and concise, interesting and broadly drawn. While the text lacks a certain depth academically, it is certainly a useful text for devotional and bible-study purposes. One could easily incorporate the six chapters here into a six-week series during Lent, looking toward the event of Good Friday.
