Six Hours One Friday, Anchoring to the Cross
I found this book to be very encouraging. Mr. Lucado does a great job of bringing life to the people in the bible. He recounts stories such as the raising of Lazarus, the raising of the Widow's son, the woman at the well, as well as others, and explores what their encounters with Jesus might have been like. He also takes events documented on the day of the crucifixion and how they may have affected the centurian and other onlookers. This book is not a deep theological treatise. It did, however, cause me to look into my heart and check my faith. It restates the anchor points for a strong faith. In my copy there is also a study guide in the back of the book that could be used for a devotional study.
