Newly released in paperback, Adam Hamilton guides us, step by step, through the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life in his popular, heartbreaking, and inspiring book.

No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. In this book, Hamilton will help you experience and understand the significance of Jesus’ suffering and death like never before. He retraces the day that changed human history in his usual straightforward yet easy, conversational style that speaks to both long-time Christians and those who are simply curious about the story of Christ’s crucifixion.

This new edition includes devotions for each chapter and travel notes from Adam's trip to the Holy Lands.
Support materials include Leader Guide, a DVD, materials for all ages of Youth and Children’s Ministries, plus many more resources.

Adam Hamilton combines biblical story, historical detail, theological analysis, spiritual insight, and pastoral warmth to retell the narrative of Jesus’ last and greatest hours.
- Leith Anderson, author of The Jesus Revolution

Adam Hamilton’s 24 Hours That Changed the World delivers solid scholarship describing how the day of Christ’s crucifixion unfolded. It also suggests that our response to Christ’s work – when it appears evil has the upper hand – can be one of courageous hope and great courage. Read this book! - Mark Beeson, Lead Pastor of Granger Community Church in Granger, Indiana

Adam Hamilton is, in my opinion, a national treasure. He embodies the kind of generous orthodoxy so many of us have been dreaming of and praying for.
- Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christian

Adam Hamilton opened my eyes to the last hours of Christ, before his resurrection, in a much deeper way. He provided insight into the culture, geography, worldview, religious caste, and the way Jesus suffered for us. My church used this book during the Easter season, and it was a terrific inspiration for us. The book itself if wonderfully written. I finished it in 3 reading sessions. I do plan on reading it again. Get a copy and read it, it will add a new depth to you knowledge of Christ and that he loves us so much.

This was a good Lenten devotional book. My wife and I both enjoyed taking in the last 24 hours of Christ over the course of the Lenten season. It was nice to slow down that last 24 hours and reflect on the many different aspects of what Christ went through.

This book takes you from the Last Supper through the Resurrection and beyond. It goes through all the events of the betrayal, arrest, trials, beatings, crucifixion, entombment, and onto the Resurrection. What I enjoyed about the book is how each event that occurred in Jesus’ suffering correlates to my life. How I should treat people in my life, how do I deal with the good and bad events in my life, and what it all will mean at the end of my mortal life.

I used this book in conjunction with CD course taught by my pastor and a 40 day devotional book, both of the same name. I thought the combination an excellent way to look at the last few days of the life of Jesus Christ. I learned much about the culture during the days of Jesus and was able to think about the related scriptures in a new way. The CD enhanced the experience with short movie clips of the author moving through the places traditionally thought to be where certain actions happened. The book gave a lot more information than the CD or devotional. If only using one of the three, I think would this book to be the most valuable.

This book will change how one feels about the death of Jesus Christ. It will literally put the reader at the table for the Last Supper. The reader will be with Jesus when he prays so hard drops of sweat turn to blood. One can feel the thorns, the spit, the agony of the cross. You will not be disappointed. You will want to read it more that one time. You will realize what it means to have God in human form through His son, Jesus, die for your sins.

Reverend Hamilton once again gets right into the heart of his subject matter with his keen interpretation of events. This time the events occur during the 24 hours before Jesus Christ is crucified. This is a participant's book that goes along with the DVD and leader book.I have enjoyed reading it in the weeks leading up to Holy Week. There are lots of things to examine and ponder that I never thought about before.
