Prepare for a life-changing encounter with Jesus, seeing him afresh through the eyes of three women who worship and adore him.

Final Words, by Adam Hamilton narrated by Sean Runnette

Publisher’s Summary:

In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words” statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:
• Father Forgive Them
• Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother
• My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?
• Today You Will Be with Me in Paradise
• I Thirst
• It Is Finished
• Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit

In 24 Hours That Changed the World, Adam Hamilton took us on a Lenten journey through the last day of Jesus’ life. Now in this inspiring follow-up book, Hamilton explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross. Each chapter begins with the biblical account followed by a first-person story as might have been told from the viewpoint of one of the characters at the cross. Then the chapter explores the meaning of Jesus’ dying words for our lives today. Following the last statement, a postscript recounts the words Jesus spoke following his resurrection, including what truly were the final words Jesus spoke while walking this earth.
