I can only hope that my brothers and sisters in Christ, once they read this book, go out and spread the word of the greatest sacrifice of all times....he died for us, for our sins.
The writings of Anna will bring a more closer relationship with our saviour. Read the book, its wonderfull.
I cannot recommended enough. May God Bless you all.
That's why Anne Catherine Emmerich's visions of the final 12 hours of Christ's life and love, compelling and powerful as they are, are ultimately ancillary. Scripture accounts are as nourishing as terse: "But these have been written so that you may believe Jesus is the Christ..." But this simple German nun, devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and allowed to vicariously receive some of Christ's mystical pains and wounds, was allowed this chilling, exhausting retelling.
Those aware of "The Passion" as inspiring Mel Gibson's landmark 2003 film, and thinking his film graphic, will learn from this book. Sr. Emmerich's goal, or God's goal through her, was bringing the reader as close to Jesus and Mary's deep, shared love and physical pain as any written work could other than the Gospel. The book is separated into daily meditations of a few pages each (perfect for Lenten devotions), walking deliberately and painfully through Christ's interminable suffering with overpowering detail. It is meant to be over the top, to bring a reader to tears, guilt, amazement, and repentance.
It's for fault of familiarity we cannot read the original Gospels and see the events and characters in as rich detail, with the character motivations Sr. Emmerich provides. But not one word conflicts with the Gospels: Judas, the Pharisees, and Pilate are more villainous for the extra words about them, with Satan the ultimate force of evil in battle with Christ.

Mel Gibson used this book for his famous movie, and reading it, you understand why. The book is surprisingly full of details and things that were afterwards confirmed by scientists and historians. I don't know which things exactly as I haven't done research on that, but there is so much in the book that could be confirmed/proved wrong that were a historian to work on the book, he'd find a lot of material.
The Gospels don't contain very much about the Passion, by which I mean that details aren't given and that they're all fairly concise about this episode. With Emmerich's account of the Passion, you can flesh it out with this stupendous writings. Reading this, you will have a fresher, and certainly more accurate (in that it's much richer), sense of the ordeal that the Passion was.
I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Passion, and to any Christian who'd like to know more about his Saviour's sufferings. The book is absolutely splendid, with a hardcover with beautiful leather, a ribbon to mark your page, etc. This is to be expected with Baronius, and I wasn't disappointed.Read more ›
I find it even more amazing that the negative reviews, especially those who found the book anti-semitic, were written after the movie's opening (Feb. 25, 2004). I have to wonder if those reviewers have actually read the book. My guess is that they have not.
