The Longest Week
As an addition to my assault on Mark I've read ( in 2 days!) The Longest Week by Nick Page which aims to put the last week of Christ into historical perspective for both believer's and non-believers, e.g the politics behind the actions of Pilate, High priest and others, the lives of soldiers and ordinary people, why what Jesus did upset the Roman's / Jewish Authorities and often the disciples. I believe he's a protestant but getting any further info from his website or google drew a blank. Found it fascinating but couldn't find a Catholic review of it on the web. Anyone know of one or read it for themselves?
