Reviews

'Herein lie keys to the Christian Mysteries, veiled in apparent simplicity. The results of serious meditation upon the Seven Days of Holy Week are both profound and life-enhancing.'
-- The Inner Light, Vernal Equinox 2011

'Bock writes with great reverence and clarity. His storytelling is luminous and vivid. He has the ability to transport the reader right into the events and places described, drawing our attention and holding it with gentle care. It is clear that he knows intimately the geology and geography of where the stories took place. His deep involvement with Christ's life; his truthfulness towards events and his love for this Being are palpable throughout the narrative. He has the ability to describe everything to us in such a way that we become witnesses on all levels: spiritual, earthly and human. His writing is secure and confident but never overbearing; authoritative yet uplifting. He serves his subject in great humility and provides a service to all who are seeking to deepen their understanding and relationship to this Great Week, as it is also known. Bock makes the most profound mystery understandable and intimate. What is hugely complicated is made to sound simple, because he seems to tell the truth and the truth simply is.
This is a good sized hardback volume with a bookmarker attached to keep track of the pages as you progress through the week. It is bigger than a pocket sized book but small enough to fit comfortably on a bedside table and, with its handsome loose leafed cover, would make a special present for anyone.'
