e-Sword Version:

About the Schilder Trilogy
These superb works are without equal in modern literature. Schilder ''brings the reader into touch with the spiritual and temporal forces which converged during the Passion Week. He is careful to keep Christ central, and he blends in a masterful way this culmination of our Lord’s earthly life with historical facts and psychological realities'' (Cyril Barber, The Minister’s Library).

Abounding in exegetical illumination and challenging insights, this monumental trilogy on the suffering, trial, and crucifixion of Christ is the most complete single-author work available on these aspects of the incarnation.

The three volumes, chronologically, begin with Peter's confession and end with Jesus' burial:

1) Christ on Trial: Gethsemane to the Condemnation—550 pages
2) Christ in His Suffering: Through the Garden Scene—468 pages
3) Christ Crucified: Christ on the Cross; the Seven Words—562 pages (totaling 8 megabytes of text when uncompressed)

Volume one describes the suffering of Jesus in its initial stages, ending with the Garden of Gethsemane.

Volume two covers the Lord s Passion until He was condemned to be crucified.

Volume three continues the study through His burial.

With a profound and unusual awareness the author analyzes the recorded words, gestures and deeds of the Christ from the time He passes through the gate of Jerusalem on His way to Golgotha to the moment of His death. Only a theologian who is a psychologist could have traced with such sensitiveness the progress of the redemptive activity within the soul of the Savior.

While the author keeps the Christ ever at the very center of his discourses, he focuses a searching light on each of the characters who emerge into prominence during the events of that first Good Friday; not because of an interest in them as isolated individuals, but because of the significance of the relationships that exist between them and the Man on the cross.

No child of God is completely mature until he or she has gone to Gethsemane and followed the trail of Christ as He approached the hour when He must endure unspeakable humiliation, pain, and the suffering of momentary loss of the Father’s presence with Him. It is no wonder that He sweat blood at the prospect, for He was not ignorant of what He must go through in order to provide salvation for His sheep: ''The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep'' (John 10:11).

No one will better draw you down to the depths of this drama, a scene which only one Person could have endured, than Schilder. You will not be the same after you have followed Christ through these stirring looks that Schilder gives you – you will be a better Christian, by far.

Cyril J. Barber, author of The Minister's Library:

When Dr. Klass Schilder’s ‘Lenten trilogy’ first made its appearance in English nearly forty years ago, it was immediately welcomed by evangelicals of all denominations as a work of outstanding merit. In fact, it was found to be without equal in modern literature.

Theologically accurate, abounds in suggestive insights, and provides exegetical illumination for a score of Easter sermons. It is a classic treatment on the passion of Christ. [It} deserves a place in every pastor’s library

***For the reprinted version, Cyril Barber wrote the introduction to volumes 2-3. He also gave volumes 2-3 an asterisk in his book, the Minister's Library, which is the highest recommendation he can provide.

Dr. Harold J. Ockenga says,

“In all Lenten literature known to me there is no work comparable to the trilogy of Klaas Schilder. The Schilder Trilogy includes these unsurpassed volumes.

About Klaas Schilder
Klaas Schilder graduated from the theological school of Kampen. After having served several churches he studied at the University of Erlangen, Germany, and received the Ph.D. degree, summa cum laude. He was appointed shortly after, by the Reformed Churches of the Netherlands, to the chair of dogmatics and ethics. His distinguished career included the editorship of the religious weekly De Reformatie.

Schilder was a man of many gifts, without any doubt. Anyone who has read his writings, even some of them, will readily acknowledge that he possessed the ability to look at various theological questions in different ways and to express his ideas in sometimes eloquent ways which were often fresh and new.

Hi Josh,

To read over Easter. Why just Easter?! I say "read all the time." This kind of thinking came as a result of an ad on t.v., over here for the A.S.B. (Auckland Savings Bank).


Has to be a bit of a worry taking things from and ad., eh mate! :))




I wonder why a large portion looks like it has been redacted.

And you sure can not hold it up to the light to read between the lines eighter.

Is there some reason why this is the case I'm not aware of?
