Where does The Last Week rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In the middle. I liked being able to knit on my prayer shawl while listening, but I wished I could highlight and underline. A little too scholarly for a casual listening.
Would you be willing to try another book from Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan ? Why or why not?
I would definitely read other books from Borg and Crossan. Very thorough. Borg & Crossan's review of Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem is thoroughly scholarly and inspirational. I especially appreciate the fact that they acknowledge the traditional interpretations while offering new perspectives.
Any additional comments?
I love audible books, but I would buy this one for my Kindle next time!

I first read this book at the recommendation of a former pastor during the spring of 2010. I had just retired and was caring for my wife during her last days. The word 'blessing' is used to often these days, but this book was truly a blessing during a very difficult time. Now listening to the audio version gave me great comfort and additional insight to the past few years. This may become an annual lead in to Lent for me.

I recommend listening to this audiobook again and again until the excellent discourse on Holy Week has been comprehended. It’s exposition of the political as well as the personal Jesus in his last week is very intriguing and makes one think of how the social justice aspect is sadly missing from mainstream Christianity, the church being pretty much aligned with the powerful establishment.
