Book Review

Windows on Easter by Bill Crowder

This book provides an interesting perspective on Easter. It is view from some of the "other" people who witnessed the capture, crucifixion and or resurrection of Christ: Malchus, Judas Iscariot, the centurion, Joseph of Arimathea, the women disciples, and the disciples on the Emmaus Road.

I am not usually interested in books that provide a "different" view on a traditional topic, however, I found it to be the perfect read for Holy Week. The author uses stories from history, from his personal life, from church tradition, and of course Scripture to give a picture or "window" into the Easter story from each set of the characters perspectives.

I highly recommend reading this book if you are interested in looking at Easter with a different, yet biblical perspective.
