Overview

Anne Catherine Emmerich was born in Germany in 1774. As a child she believed that angels, saints, and the Holy Family visited and talked with her as she worked in the fields. At twenty-four, she had her first mystic vision of the sufferings of Christ, accompanied by stigmata and bleeding. At twenty-nine, she became an Augustinian nun and continued to have visions and stigmata. In her visions she recounted scenes from the life of Christ, which she seemed to have witnessed. These phenomena brought her fame and investigation by both science and the Church.

This book was one of the sources for Mel Gibson's motion picture, The Passion of Christ.

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Encyclopedia
"[Emmerich's] visions go into details, often slight, which give them a vividness that strongly holds the reader's interest as one graphic scene follows another in rapid succession as if visible to the physical eye. Other mystics are more concerned with ideas, she with events; others stop to meditate aloud and to guide the reader's thoughts, she lets the facts speak for themselves with the simplicity, brevity, and security of a Gospel narrative."

    My favorite religious book

    Very Emotional. I'm reading it now for the third time. Written by a nun who was graced with the visions of Jesus' last days and crucifiction. You'll feel like you're there. I constantly have to stop and pause from reading and either pray for forgivness or take some deep breaths to go on reading. It's crushingly painful to read at times.

    This is an excellent book!!

    I read this book a couple of years ago and simply could not put it down. Simply put, it fills in all the details that are left out of the 4 Gospels. Our Lord took Sister Emmerich back to the time of His Passion and she was able to witness it first hand. This book is the diary of these visions. I saw Mel Gibson's movie and was not surprised at all simply because this book prepared me for what I was to see. Actually, Mel Gibson sanitized the movie somewhat. The book goes into much greater detail than the movie. You will NOT regret purchasing this book, you may end up buying extras to give to others!!!

    Inspirational

    The book offers some interesting background to the events surrounding Christ's passion and death. Accuracy of clothing, customs, religious practices are vividly clear, as though you are there. This is not however, an orthodox, scriptural account but the purported visions of an elderly, ill nun who admits to only partial recall.
    Individual religious fervor and personal piety make this a wonderful inspirational piece. One can fully appreciate the blood lust of Roman torture and ultimate cruelty of crucifixion. Be careful not to substitute the Gospel of Gibson for the authentic scripture.

    A must after the Movie or Before

    Indeed, without reading the book where the authors are able to take you to the hearts and mind of Jesus Christ, his mother, Magdalen and others, you cannot fully understand the horrific and necessary sacrifice the Lord did for mankind...after reading this book and seeing the movie, it will make you think 100 times about ever sinning again....Carol, Speech & Lang. student, Springfield, Massachusetts

    Poignant and Inspirational

    When you read this book, you will think that Mel Gibson had teamed up with Disney when he made his movie adaptation. This book is 100 times more graphically violent than the movie. Yet -unlike the movie- the violence does not overwhelm the message of love. There is a superb balance between the depictions of brutality and the immense compassion of Jesus for his persecuters and all mankind. And there is not even a hint of anti-semitism in this book - in fact Emmerich goes in great detail about the conversions of Jesus tormentors and of the Jews who opposed Jesus' exicution. I was struck that an uneducated nun like Emmerich knew so much about ancient Israel and it's customs. She illuminates and fills in gaps in the gospel accounts and beautifully harmonizes the supposed 'contradictory' elements for in gospels. She describes everything as though she were an eyewitness and her style is so simple and straight-forward that you cannot help but to believe it. I am not sure all of the historical and cultural details are correct, but she asserts many times that she doesn't remember every vision clearly and that it is hard for her to describe certain things. Regardless if you read this accout with faith or skepticism, you will fail to be deeply moved by Jesus' love for sinners.

    Readable

    I was interested in something spiritual. I read the whole book but I have a few thoughts. First it is not 'endorsed' by the churc, which was ok until I googled and found the writer used some poetic license. then I wondered what he added to her story because it made a better story. There are many things she did not remember. Otherwise it is very readable and interesting.

    God given

    What a gift from her most precious spouse. To see, know, transport, suffer, share in so many intament moments that her spouses family went through to get to our Divine Christ. It is a marvelous recognition of humanity in spirit without saying the obvious i.e., that our bodies are just a host to something SO much more that we can't readily comprehend in physicality. God and His mysteries ... I can not get enough!!

    The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ

    If you want to learn or know what happened in the last days of Jesus' life without reading The Bible, then this is the book to read. It gives a lot of information.
    The book is good even though I felt at some points that it was overly descriptive and tedious.

    Powerful

    Having seen 'The Passion of the Christ' I wondered about the detail that Gibson placed in his movie. But reading this book you realize that Gibson actually softened the impact of this event. By reading the actual version of these events, you feel the anguish of the witnesses, and understand the impact this vision had on Sister Anne. This book is a visceral account of the sacrifice made, its reason, its cost, and its impact on Jesus, and everyone. It is not light reading, but impossible to put down.
