Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096733280X, Paperback)Based upon the latest historical, archaeological and medical research, and fully grounded in the teachings of the Catholic Church, this book takes you back to ancient Palestine and places you at the scene as Mary is greeted by the Angel Gabriel, Jesus spends his last week on earth, the disciples encounter the resurrected Jesus, and Heaven welcomes Mary home when she is assumed body and soul from her resting place on earth. [From the Agony in the Garden]: Midnight came. The Last Supper was over. They sang hymns of praise and thanksgiving, strong voices filled with sincerity and hope and love. Then Jesus led them out of the house, down the stone stairs on Mount Zion within shouting distance of the palace of Caiaphas and out of the city through the Fountain Gate. The moon was high and full and cast their shadows at their feet as they walked through the Kidron Valley, past the great white stones of the Temple Mount towering hundreds of feet above them. Jesus walked more slowly than usual, and seemed agitated. The still of the night pressed down ominously all around the little group of twelve men. The sound of their sandaled feet scuffing along the road was unnaturally loud, seeming to thunder their passage to the disapproving darkness. The men shivered against the cold and a terrible feeling of dread. They turned off the road and crossed the arched bridge spanning the little brook murmuring of a rainy season past. The garden of the olive press lay hushed and foreboding amid deep, mournful shadows. Olive trees with gnarled trunks and lacy, silver-green foliage stood motionless among outcrops of craggy, limestone rock. The whole world seemed to be holding its breath.
