Books about Our Lord

  Doctor at Calvary: The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ As Described by a Surgeon
Pierre Barbet
[Hardback] Roman Catholic Books (1993)
From an examination of the Shroud of Turin, Pierre Barbet has written a scientific and reverent study of the Crucifixion of Christ.What kind and degree of physical torture did Jesus suffer before and during His death on Calvary? What was the medical cause of His death? These are some of the questions Dr. Barbet attempts to answer in this fascinating, gripping and moving book. To actually read the physical, emotional and psychological abuse inflicted on Jesus - from His Agony in the Garden, scourging, and death on the Cross -is to recognize that no matter what we have ever learned about the Passion pales in relation to what actually took place. Christ suffered beyond anything that humans can comprehend. Dr. Barbet's reconstruction of Christ's terrible agony is presented in language that cannot fail to move the heart.
