Publishers Description You can tell a lot about a person by the way he dies.
In the last week of his life, Jesus deliberately sets his face toward Jerusalem-and certain death. This is no ordinary week. Even the angels are silent as they ponder the final days of Jesus Christ.
This is no ordinary walk. Jesus doesn't chatter. He dosen't pause. He is on his final journey.
He walks determinedly to the holy city, angrily into the temple, wearily into Gethsemane, painfully up the Via Dolorosa. And powerfully out of the vacated tomb.
Master storyteller and best-selling author Max Lucado invites you: "Let's follow Jesus on his final journey. For by observing his, we may learn how to make ours. And discover what matters to God."

Reviews - What do customers think about And the Angels Were Silent: Walking with Christ Toward the Cross (The Bestseller Collection)?
angels Apr 25, 2009
This was an an wesome book. The depiction of the Easter Week made me feel as though I was reading an enlightening biography about a person I only knew slightly.
More a review of Amazon than the item... Dec 26, 2007
I ordered this book for someone who can only receive paperback books, and this site sent a hardcover. I went through the customer service process with this site and their return procedure was great. They gave me a credit even though it was over the 30 day return period and were very helpful in sending out another book. ANOTHER hardcover. So the person still has not been able to read the book. Better luck next time, this site.
Thought Provoking Dec 21, 2007
Perfect for a morning devotional. Each chapter will mean something different to each person. Although it is about the last week of Jesus' life, every word made me stop and think. Everyone I have recommended this book to has been touched in a different way.
Will make you think. Oct 30, 2007
Max Lucado wonderfully weaves modern day stories with Jesus' last week in And the Angels Were Silent. I think almost everyone will find nuggets to take away from this book to help with their daily walk and, while this book is short and could be read in a sitting or two, I think it is better read in short spurts and then pondered on. There is also a Readers Guide with questions to prompt further thought about each chapter along with bible verses to direct further study.
Much like the other book of Mr. Lucado's that I have read, Facing Your Giants, it might be a good book to put on your nightstand to read a few chapters each evening.
Amazing! Jan 8, 2007
This book was very moving and had great stories to tell. I really enjoyed reading it and I was moved to tears several times!
