I’m not sure how to tactfully write this. The Roman rulers? Were pervy. Shame on them! And ferocious. Back then rulers killed people like they were getting points for creativity. We are sneaking up on the Lenten season, when Jesus’ death is magnified, and I’m here to tell you this book magnifies the crud out of our Savior’s crucifixion. It’s as gruesome and painful to read as it is important. I’m telling you because I wish somebody would have warned me about the gory parts of the book.
If you’re going somewhere tropical and beach-y for Spring Break? Take some Janet Evanovich. But, if you want a historically accurate, thought-provoking book to pick up this Lent, pick up the aforementioned book. The one with the crummy title.
