The idea for this book really started when I heard a story on the internet concerning Logan and how he had to put down a calf because its mother couldn't provide the necessary nourishment. Logan was just a ten- or twelve-year-old at the time and a son of a farmer. I don't know if that internet site is still active as you read this, but it was a sad tale from a young son of the farmer, and the calf was basically his responsibility. He was a wise young man for his age, however, and reflected on the task as being similar to God having to put down his son. He made the comment that he couldn't imagine how God felt when his son was put on the cross. Since I have difficulty knowing how God felt as well, I accepted this lack of understanding as a challenge for writing this book. I chose the last days of Jesus here on earth as the inspiration. I wanted to see if I could put this sacrificial act into a perspective that I could understand. Although I didn't use every act, the ones I chose were selected to determine if I could put myself into Jesus's situation and respond as Jesus did or at least respond according to my understanding and interpretation of how Jesus responded.
