What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Dr. Jose Norberto, an accomplished cardiovascular surgeon, has written an interesting treatise on the crucification of Jesus Crist from a physician surgeon perspective. Readers will find his observations thought-provoking. His unique insights into the aspect of the unbelievable trauma to the human body of Jesus, as reported in Scripture, and his thoughts about the resurrection, are worth the reader’s consideration and attention." -G.B. Snider, MD, FACP

"Scientists and physicians may feel troubled by the concept of faith and be reluctant to accept religion. Dr. Norberto has embraced the mysteries of faith and launched a medical investigation into certain biblical teachings. The Physical Death and Resurrection takes you on a scientific journey to the time of Christ. Beginning with the Shroud of Turin, Dr. Norberto explores the scientific evidence that links the Shroud to Jesus. In the second section, Dr. Norberto presents an intriguing scientific explanation of the crucifixion and the resurrection. The presentation is thoroughly researched and well written, offering its readers the historical and scientific evidence to support the resurrection." -Margaret S. Sawyer, M.D

Dr. Norberto brings an interesting perspective to the passion. I found his book to be very easy to read and his simplified and practical analysis of his research kept my interest peaked to the point I read the book in two sittings.

Hi Jose J Norberto, MD While on vacation I just finished your book. The Physical Death & Resurrection. It's an awesome quick read, only 3 hours, and I recommend it to believers and non-believers alike. For me it's shed some light on the impossible comprehension of Christ's Death and Resurrection from a clinical point of view. Now I'm going to tell my whole family to read it. Thank you my friend and God Bless you! Patrick Hunter

If you've ever wondered what the death and resurrection of Jesus was truly like, you must read Dr. Jose J Norberto's first published book. He put a lot of research into his writing, from the medical effects, physiological happens for Jesus and his followers and the not believers. Dr. Norberto went as far as to research, outside of the Biblical accounts of these events, both by believers and non-believers. It is written in detail, yet in such a way that everyone will comprehend the content and intent of his work. It will leave you in tears at some points, and actual snickers, at other times. It is my opinion that EVERY CHRISTIAN should read this...the understanding of Christ's true sacrifice and horrific death he endured, as God's only son, just to save us from our sins. I also recommend any/all non-Christians or 'Doubting Thomas's', to read this book - as it will set in your mind, historical events and explain many of the events that have always been difficult for some to understand, believe or comprehend. Well written, well researched and deserving to be held, read and contemplated by as many people as possible. It's not a 'long read' and I plan on reading it has lit a passion in me that no other book, outside the Bible, as been able to do. You WILL NOT REGRET READING THIS WORK OF NON-FICTION....I PROMISE.

What a great and awesome book to describe what our Lord and Savior went through for us. I truly enjoyed reading this book and at many times felt very moved and saddened and it was like I was actually there witnessing what was taking place. The book also made me understand a few things that I had also found mysterious surrounding the events during the Resurrection. To think that Jesus endured such great physical and emotional pain and suffering and it was all for us - The Believers of Jesus Christ. Great work Dr. Norberto !!

Dr. Norberto’s ability to merge the biblical accounts of the death and resurrection with his medical expertise is truly awe inspiring! As one of faith, I find the events that occurred in those three days to be the single most important piece of history there is. This book adds another layer of reality to those events and gives a deeper understanding of the sacrifice He made for us all.
