About-

The Passion of Christ is observed by people all around the world as one of the more significant days on the Christian calendar. In certain parts of the world, such as the Philippines, the re-enactments of the crucifixion can go so far as to include actual nails driven through the hands of participants as they wail in pain. Is this the way we are to learn about the crucifixion? Will a re-enactment teach us the truth of the cross?
The text of John 18 and 19 teaches us clearly the facts of the crucifixion and is surrounded by intrigue and mystery. For too long, Protestant Christianity has neglected the years of scholarship in pre-reformation and post-reformation Roman research. In The Trials and Passion of Christ, Michael Cannon brings together the best of Protestant and Roman scholasticism to uncover significant details surrounding the trials and the drama of the crucifixion on Golgotha. This book is a journey, reading nearly like an eye-witness report, through the trials, the suffering, and the passion of Christ.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Michael Cannon is a master of biblical exposition, framing each chapter of The Trials and Passion of Christ with the perspective of a watchful first-century eye, blending the colors and tones of historical details and biblical insights with just the right shades of illustrative material to illuminate a vivid and compelling portrait of the suffering Lamb of God."
--R. J. Gore Jr.
Professor of Systematic Theology
Erskine Theological Seminary

"Michael Cannon has written The Trials and Passion of Christ with scholarly attention, pastoral awareness, and devotional sensitivity to help the disciple of Jesus move closer to the divinely inspired revelation of the anointing work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. In writing this, the author helps us also move closer to Christ Himself. For this reason alone, though there are many others, I am bound to commend this work."
--Michael A. Milton
James M. Baird Chair of Pastoral Theology
Reformed Theological Seminary

"The Trials and Passion of Christ reads as easily as a series of sermons and is written by one who clearly has a pastor's heart for relating the Word to life for the sake of encouraging discipleship."
--Daniel M. Bell Jr.
Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary

"The Trials and Passion of Christ brings you into the presence of each event as they unfold. Michael Cannon has written an insightful and inspiring treasure that will benefit Christians all over the world. His approach makes it easy to follow and allows the reader to gain tremendous revelation of John 18 and 19. This book should be used by ministers, adult class teachers, and Bible teachers. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to get my copy!"
--Albert L. Downing
Senior Pastor, Oak Grove Baptist Church
Pontiac, South Carolina

"Mike Cannon's The Trials and Passion of Christ is a wonderful study of our Lord's last moments on earth. His down to earth stories are those that many readers can relate to. I was able to close my human eyes and see the examples via 'spiritual eyes.' The study will be valuable to any minister preparing for sermons or Bible studies during the days leading up to our Lord's triumph over the grave and death. Any reader will be inspired by Jesus' suffering endured on our behalf. I strongly recommend this work."
--Samuel J. T. Boone
Chaplain (Colonel) USA--Retired
