    1. I could read these series of books over and over and over again. Andrew C. Skinner is one of the guys you see on Sunday morning on PBS doing the scripture round-table discussion. He offers amazing insight and each chapter I took something new with me. I loved loved loved these books!They are all about the Savior and the need for an atonement, and how truly a great and marvelous gift it is!Read it! :)


    2. I had no idea this book was part of a series. I am anxious to read the other two books! It was an incredible and humbling read for me. It helped to personalize the Atonement for me. It has touched aspects of my life I previously had not thought of within the realm of the Atonement. It's an easy read, but I couldn't get through it quickly; I stopped almost every paragraph to ponder, look up scripture, and give thanks to my God.


    3. There are 3 books in this series. Gethsemane, Golgatha and the Garden Tomb. I really enjoyed all three. They are very descriptive and give a detailed description about what it would have been like for the Savior to experience these sufferings. If you are a feeler you will be even more touched by the books.


    4. I LOVE this book! So easy to read, but so much great information! I understood and had a testimony of the Power of the Atonement, but this book really helped me gain a testimony understand how it applies to me personally!


    5. This is an awesome book. I recommend it to every and anyone. Very insightful. I especially loved the section/information of the Mount of Olives and the symbolism of the olives.A must read!!


    6. A very poignant yet readable explaination of the importance, the symbolism, and the effects of the atonement of Christ. Awesome!


    7. This is a great book! Enlightening - I would recommend it to anyone. I read it the first time right after high school, and recently re-read it.


    8. A very insightful account about Christ's last night on Earth. Full of good thoughts of Skinner as well as church leaders.


    9. This is part of a 3 part series and I absolutely loved these books! Very educational but not too doctrinal or dry.


    10. Great insights to the events of Gethsemane. Easy to read and understand. It gave me an expanded view of what our Savior suffered during his time in the Garden.



    11. This book is awesome. I know it's not scripture but it gives some really good insights and stuff to think about and I really enjoyed it.


    12. A little repetitive and less scholarly than I was hoping for. Not bad, but not much different from every other book on the subject.


    13. In an attempt to recognize The Lord in my life for the Christmas season and to acknowledge what His life means to me, I decided to read some non-fiction about what His life means, and I started with Gethsemane. This is a lovely, concise, clear book about what the purpose of His suffering means and why we suffer, "God will feel after you, and He will take hold of you and wrench your very heart strings, and if you can not stand it you will not be fit for an inheritance in the Celestial Kingdom of [...]


    14. I thought this book was well written. Dr. Skinner is certainly qualified being the Dean of Religious Education and professor of ancient scripture at BYU and holding a master's degree in theology from Harvard and a Ph.D in history from University of Denver. I think the value of this book comes from the historical and symbolic content rather than spiritual insights - although sometimes its impossible to separate the two.Dr. Skinner uses his knowledge of ancient languages, symbolism, and scripture [...]


    15. This is a short description of what happened in Gethsemane. It is short on conceptual, or philosophical discussion, though it does have some personal application. It has some nice historical quotes explaining basic LDS perspectives on the events in the garden. There was also a chapter on the significance of olive trees.


    16. Andrew C. Skinner did a very good collection of information. I was informed on things that I didn't know and that is always good in a non-fiction type book. I hadn't thought of the term "awestruck" or "surprise" as one of the descriptions that Jesus had when he suffered the sins of the world in Gethsemane. But it made sense when the author brought out some very good points. How else could a perfect being who never experienced sin feel when the sins of the world were upon him. To quote the author [...]


    17. For such a short book, the implications presented in this book are nothing short of astounding regarding the role of Christ in Garden. This book attempts to place the acts of the Atonement in a perspective of importance, as it relegates the Crucifixion as an anti-climatic. There are some valid points to consider, but the balance the weight of the Atonement so greatly on the events in the Garden, the author implies that the Crucifixion and Resurrection are forgone conclusions.This book makes me w [...]


    18. Andrew C. Skinner compiles a rich collection of information from Ancient Scripture and Modern Day prophets to paint a well charted exploration of the significance of the suffering Christ underwent in Gesthemane's garden. He examines the scope of the atonement's reach as well as the precursing practices to the Lord's great sacrifice. Although most of the content served as a good review, it did include some new insights for me. Of great interest to me was the segment discussing the symbolic links [...]


    19. I loved this book! It really made me think and taught me a lot about the Atonement and how much Jesus loves us. I think if I learned anything I learned that. This is a very moving book, especially the opening. I had tears in my eyes many many times through out reading this. This is a 3 part series. I have ordered the other 2 books which I will read next. This is a very easy read as well. If you want to come closer to Christ and learn more about his love for us I definitely recommend this book.


    20. This was my second try at this book. I think I wasn't in the right place to read it the first time. I wanted to rush through it as I was reading it my second time, but found that taking my time and pondering what I was reading was more valuable. I was supposed to be finished by Easter, but it is now mid-July. I think with the 2 other books I will start around Easter, but take my time with those as well!


    21. Fantastically insightful. Really, I'm floored. I've always fancied myself a spiritual, religious, and relatively pious person who thought deeply on the Atonement and Jesus Christ, but this book taught me otherwise. Every time I read this book I was left thinking about things I had never considered before. I have to say that I'm grateful to have read this book, regardless of how cheesy or overstated that may sound.


    22. Some really great concepts which I found worthy of spending extra time thinking about. However I found some other parts very tedious and often repetitive.On the other hand, it was a fairly quick read and helps us understand on a broader scope what actually Gethsemane is/was, and the part it played in Jesus' ministry and the Atonement. I think a lot of people don't understand how this fits in with the Atonement and could benefit from reading this book.


    23. I really enjoyed this book. It really puts into perspective the sacrifice Christ was willing to make for us. More importantly I felt as if I really came to know him on a human level. It was a wonderful book. There are 2 more in the series that are just as inspiring. Excellent read for anyone who wants to learn more about Christ and the Atonement.


    24. This is a great book, but suffers from a common malady of LDS non-fiction--it could have been (and should have been) done in half the page-count. The author tells you something, rephrases it, and then summarizes the telling and rephrasing together. The retellings make a somewhat tedious read of something that could be succinct and compelling.


    25. loved this in-depth look at the atonement. all based on scriptures and the words of the prophets. really helped define the concept of christ's infinite atonement, how it works, and what it covers. amazing.


    26. A wonderful book to read with Golgotha and The Garden Tomb. During this time of turbulence and trials for so many, these books were a calming influence and a vivid reminder of what is most important.


    27. This was a difficult book to follow. You really need to concentrate and refer to the scriptures. I think I need to read it again. Before I do that, I need to read the other two books in this series.


    28. An in-depth look at the Atonement, focusing specifically on what transpired in the Garden of Gethsemane. Very accessible and clear while doing justice to such an important topic. I'm so glad I read this.


    29. Brother Skinner has written a book that helps one come just a bit closer to understanding the atonement and exactly what it is our Savior did for us. He has achieved much in doing that. I spent a very ponderous week and a half reading this book and I am grateful it was put in my hands.
