For Lent, I’m going to lead a book study of “The Last Week” by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. I highly recommend this book. It taught me a lot about the Easter story. The book uses the Biblical book of Mark to walk through the 8 days of Holy Week (Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday). Just the first chapter alone is worth the price of the book as it gives new meaning to Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on what we know as Palm Sunday. I’m looking forward to discussing the book with my church community.
