Book Selection: “The Passion Behind the Passion”

By: Doug Lawrence, 2004

A thoroughly Catholic study of “The Peculiar Theology of Redemption”.

Inspired by the movie, “The Passion of the Christ”.

The amazing, true story of the supernatural love behind the Passion and death of Christ, including an in-depth reexamination of the foundations of our faith. 

In an effort to understand precisely how Christ’s death on the cross, at the hands of men, actually served to redeem mankind, to determine precisely why it was necessary for Jesus to so grieviously suffer, and to discover the reason(s) why only the Son of God could do the job, the author pulls together 2000 years of authentic Christian theology, along with the writings of St. Augustine, St. Anselm, St. Thomas Aquinas, and others. Then, he painstakingly correlates all the information with the Gospels, and with the Catholic Catechism, adds a host of interesting, little known Bible facts and commentary, and illustrates it all with classic 19th century Bible art.

An easy read. A great, and absolutely true story.  For all ages. 241 pages. Letter size, loose leaf format. Available from AskMeAboutGod.Org for $20.00.   

The reader should come away with a fresh and more practical perspective on the Christian faith, and a greater appreciation for the Church, the Priesthood, the Mass, the Holy Eucharist, and for God, whose total self-giving for our salvation, made it all possible.

Key concepts

Why we all need redemption. Exactly how it works.

How can God’s own death, at our hands, pay a debt we owe to Him?

The surprising role of the Church.

Why our children continue to be born with original sin.

Where is it written? By whom? When?

How this present world age will come to an end, some day.
