Here for the ordinary reader is an unforgettable moment-by-moment account that brings to vivid life the powerful events that transpired between Jesus’ Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and His death on the Cross at Golgotha.
Fr. Ralph Gorman has here crafted for us a single detailed narrative out of the four Gospels, weaving into his narrative relevant Old Testament passages and prophecies, and facts from Jewish and Roman history, laws, beliefs, traditions, and practices, plus helpful first century military, political, geographical, and archaeological information.
You can read this book straight through, or one chapter a day as spiritual reading before Mass or during Lent. Either way, you’ll come to grasp anew the depths of Christ’s love for you, awakening in you greater devotion to Him than ever before.
