This is the book that helped inspire Mel Gibson to make the movie The Passion of the Christ. Faithful to the Gospel narratives of the Passion and Death of Jesus, it fills in many details and is edifying and inspiring beyond belief. Plus it is surprising and heart-rending. Perhaps one of the best books on the Passion, it is also wonderful in describing the Blessed Mother’s role in our redemption. Includes a short biography of Sr. Emmerich. A great, great book for the whole family!
