GREAT READ Jan 10, 2007
THIS BOOK IS VERY WELL WRITTEN. I LIKE THE MAIN CHARACTER BECAUSE HE IS HUMBLE AND DOWN TO EARTH. JESUS IS VERY WELL DISPLAYED. YOU WANT TO STEP INTO THE BOOK AND MEET THESE CHARACTERS. SCRIPTURE IS PLAYED OUT PERFECTLY.
A Powerful and Thought-Provoking Read Oct 12, 2006
I keep a list of books that have made a strong and marked impact on my life, and this book is very near the top of the list. I found this book in a catalogue and started reading it without any expectations of greatness, but this book made a large impact on my life. Weaving the familiar story of Christ into a person's life, Brouwer threads the pages with truth about God and His love and power. It is not a fast-paced book, but an almost relaxing read. Of course, there are plots turns that will keep your attention, but the soothing way the words flow as you read of the struggles of Simeon is beautiful. I have read this book many times, and I still love it.
Great story--a different perspective. Jan 13, 2006
This is a great novel--and I'm not too much of a novel reader. I could tell you about the story, but you can read the comments provided by this site to get that. I don't have anything else to add to that part. I write the review not to tell you the story, but to tell you that it's a great novel.
I picked this up off a 2-dollar shelf or something--I assure you that this is not the kind of book I would look at and say "Mmmm...now THAT looks interesting." Rather, it is more likely that I would look at this book and think "Mmph...not for me." In retrospect, it is quite remarkable that I bought it at all--regardless of the low price.
So, since I now had the book, I might as well read it, right? So I did. In two days. I don't think I put it down when I had free time. The book is such an easy read, and very entertaining. I was truly impressed by the book. I guess it is one of those books I could call "heartwarming," or "precious." Believe me, coming from a guy, that's quite a compliment (winks). I think I even teared up at the end. Again--coming from a guy, that's kinda impressive, don't you think?
I'm sure the girls are ready to buy it now...just because it made a guy cry...
But guys--don't be turned off becuase I used patty-cake terminology like "precious" to describe this book. It's a great book. It's an entertaining read. It's captivating. It's interesting. It's good. It's not a long book, and I'm pretty sure that if you pick it up, you won't put it down...at least not until you finish it (or it makes you cry too).
Because He lives! Unconditional love. Awesome! Feb 24, 2005
This might be one of those you look at and a big question mark comes to mind. When my pastor's wife loaned it to me, I'll openly admit it wasn't exactly my first choice of what I wanted to read. We'll, it IS a first recommendation from myself! What a picture.
We join a man named Simeon. A desperate man, to be blunt. To himself, a pathetic man. He has the scars to prove it. But while visiting his cousin, he meets Yeshua. He observes some of his followers, like Peter, and observes the crowds around this amazing man. It is close to Passover. We even get a picture of Pilate, Judas, and many more!
This takes you to the cross. And beyond! You can face tomorrow, people! This actually comes close to "The Passion", but it still touches the heart and pierces the soul.
My final thought is this: If someone loans this to you, read it. Not just another book! I loved it. And it isn't complex, so it makes for an easy read. Wow!

I am not extremely emotional. This book got me. I read it in one sitting, I was on the verge of tears, and when the book was done, I promptly brought it to my friend and gave it to her to read.
The last week of Christ is masterfully tied to the "last week" of another man. Sigmund Brouwer writes this story's sentimental string through letters of the latter man to his wife.
Read if you are in a mood desiring sentimental love and sacrificial love.
