Within two years the little booklet called “His Last Week” has made its way into nearly a quarter of a million homes, and to every part of the English speaking world. To assist the reader by reverent interpretations, and the compilation of a series of notes covering the topics in this day-by-day study of the Passion, this larger book has been prepared. The editors have made use of all the suggestions that have reached them from those who have used the smaller book, and they send this out with the sincere hope that it will assist very many readers who follow our Lord in the study of these days of His Passion.

The editors have not intruded their own interpretations between the portions of the Scripture narrative. Those who wish may still read the simple Gospel story without note or comment. But for the teacher, the invalid and the student at home, as well as for Christians gathered in nightly meetings, these notes and meditations may be found to have real value. .

The effort has been to make this book of service, not only for the time of the Passion, but for the whole year. While the labor involved would have justified its publication in expensive form, the publishers have met the desire of the editors in presenting it at the lowest possible price, and in styles suited to popular distribution and permanent preservation.
