The 8 Days of Holy Week is a fantastic resource for anyone who has ever read the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and were left feeling a bit confused and disoriented by their differing arrangements of the events and parables.
Earl has taken on the painstaking task of "lining up the history" of the four gospels as it happened, chronologically. This makes it so easy and enjoyable for the reader to learn and gain insight from the varying authors as presented, side by side.
He has also included pages of background information, geographical explanations with very informative (and essential) sidebar notes. This gives the reader a much clearer picture of the scriptures that makes sense in their context! The additional graphics are an enormous asset.
My favorite aspect of reading this book is that, I am learning things about the gospels that I didn't even think to question or know there was a background story that even existed - and I've read the gospels many times over!! This by far, is my favorite bible study I've ever done before. It's all meat and potatoes here!!
