About this item
The Gospels reveal only the barest essentials about the pysical suffering of Our Lord. But in this mind-opening book, Dr. Pierre Barbet relies heavily on his close analysis of the Holy Shroud of Turin to recreate every stage of the Passion with heartrending precision and detail. The result: a minor classic of spirituality by a modern layman. For Lenten meditation, this volume is unsurpassed.
Dr. Barbet was a devout Catholic who knew the spiritual value of his findings -- and he encouraged priests to use them in homilies: "It is largely with a view to these clerics that I have wished to divulge my ideas, so that they may nourish their devotion to Jesus crucified and may bring it out in their preaching."
