Years of rebellion led Don to work in the pornography industry. The fast-paced life of Southern California, along with addictions to alcohol, drugs and porn had him bound. Then, on September 29, 1990, Don had a supernatural encounter with the Almighty God who was not intimidated by his sin. Don had found the Jesus of his salvation. As Don began to experience the reality of the God who saved him, he took his first missions trip to Russia. Immediately he was hooked. It was clear that God was calling him into the mission field. Several countries later, he was led to Haiti--a nation consumed by demonic witchcraft and Voodoo. Yet, the Lord revealed Himself to Don and miracles broke out. God used his background to set the captives free. Soon after that, Haiti became home for the Adamsons. Don quickly found that the same Jesus that saved him was also the Jesus of his calling. The challenges of working in third world missions and the demonic attacks on his family and life made it clear to Don living out his salvation and calling came with a price. Walking through fiery furnaces is something every Christian must face. It was in those dark experiences Don discovered that God not only never leaves us, but He walks in the fire with us. He learned that the Jesus of his salvation and the Jesus of his calling was also the Jesus of his agony. The Jesus of My Agony is meant for anyone who has experienced the fiery trials of life. It is a book of hope and encouragement that God is faithful and true through all ages and to everyone who puts their faith in Him.

The Final Days of Jesus

The Final Days of Jesus is not only a book about religion, but also of Roman history. The events which took place during the Passover of 33 AD may have changed the course of the entire western world, but it is important to recognise that our understanding of them have been shaped by almost two thousand years of faith, studies and oral and written tradition. For the people of the time however, the significance of Jesus’s final days remained largely unacknowledged. Mark Smith, a classical historian and an expert storyteller, vividly depicts the final days of Jesus, writing with a keen focus on historical fact: what really happened, and who was involved? Pontius Pilatus is typically considered to be one of the most justly hated men of Christian history, but was he really a despicable tyrant, or was he just a man with a lack of foresight, constrained in a difficult situation, trapped between the Roman law and higher political powers? Who were Annas and Caiaphas, High Priests of Jerusalem, and how did they become embroiled in the decision to crucify an obscure teacher from Nazareth? This book compellingly explores the role which politics played in the execution of the “King of the Jews”.

Investigating Vatican II is a collection of Fr. Jared Wicks’ recent articles on Vatican II, and presents the Second Vatican Council as an event to which theologians contributed in major ways and from which Catholic theology can gain enormous insights. Taken as a whole, the articles take the reader into the theological dynamics of Vatican II at key moments in the Council’s historical unfolding. Wicks promotes a contemporary re-reception of Vatican II’s theologically profound documents, especially as they featured God’s incarnate and saving Word, laid down principles of Catholic ecumenical engagement, and articulated the church’s turn to the modern world with a new “face” of respect and dedication to service. From the original motivations of Pope John XXIII in convoking the Council, Investigating Vatican II goes on to highlight the profound insights offered by theologians who served behind the scenes as Council experts. In its chapters, the book moves through the Council’s working periods, drawing on the published and non-published records, with attention to the Council’s dramas, crises, and breakthroughs. It brings to light the bases of Pope Francis’s call for synodality in a listening church, while highlighting Vatican II’s mandate to all of prayerful biblical reading, for fostering a vibrant “joy in the Gospel.”

In the light of Jesus’s ministry as a whole, his agonized prayer (Gethsemane) is troublesome. He failed to meet the standards of dying “like a man.” How did the first centuries of Christians come to terms with this embarrassing story?

This book was the last that St. Thomas More wrote in the Tower of London before he was executed for standing firm in his Catholic faith. In it, he explores the Gospel passages that depict the agony of Our Lord in the Garden of Gethsemane. He depicts Christ as a model of virtue in the face of suffering and persecution. And along the way, he includes valuable and eternally relevant reflections on prayer, courage, friendship, statesmanship, and more. Here is an excellent resource for Lent or anytime!

Here for the ordinary reader is an unforgettable moment-by-moment account that brings to vivid life the powerful events that transpired between Jesus’ Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and His death on the Cross at Golgotha. Told accurately and in a manner in¬teresting and intelligible, it actually provides a fuller treatment of the Passion than is found in the Gospels. You see, those Gospels were written for first century readers already familiar with many of the persons, places, parties, and politics that colored events in those long-past days. Not so modern readers, twenty centuries later! Which is why Fr. Ralph Gorman has here crafted for us a single detailed narrative out of the four Gospels, weaving into his narrative relevant Old Testament passages and prophecies, and facts from Jewish and Roman history, laws, beliefs, traditions, and practices, plus helpful first century military, political, geographical, and archaeological information. Faithful to the Gospels while drawing on the best commentaries on them in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian, these rich pages provide you a refreshing reading of the Gospels supplemented by reliable archaeological, historical, and theological information about the period, places, and persons in¬volved. Plus, you have the benefit of Fr. Gorman’s keen depictions of the Gospel places based on his three years’ residence there. You can read this book straight through, or one chapter a day as spiritual reading before Mass or during Lent. Either way, you’ll come to understand better the malice of the crowds, the dismay and confusion of Christ’s friends, and the speed with which the deadly events unfolded. Most of all, you’ll come to grasp anew the depths of Christ’s love for you, awakening in you greater devotion to Him than ever before. How about it? Wouldn’t it be good for you, by reading and meditating on the contents of this book, to spend with Jesus His last hours? From these moving pages, you’ll come to learn scores of new – and sometimes surprising – things, including: The exact moment that Satan entered Judas: can you name it?The most terrible words Jesus spoke during his life on earth: do you know them? (Pray they will never be said about you.)The real meaning of the agony in the garden (Hint: it was more than suffering)How Jesus failed to fulfill popular hopes about the MessiahThe dangerous political currents in Palestine that fueled the fatal events of holy week: Fr. Ralph Gorman explains them allThat naked man who fled before Jesus and the soldiers after Jesus’s arrest. Was it really St. Mark, as some say?Annas, Caiaphas, Herod the Great, Herod Antipas, Pilate, the High Priests, the Sanhedrin, the Sadducees, the Scribes, and the Pharisees: learn which of these many overlapping (and often conflicting) authorities and groups ruled what . . . did what . . . and whyWhy the groups that hated Jesus did not just kill him secretlyThe many — and often shifting — charges made against JesusWhy Jesus refused to answer many of His accusersThe moment that, under oath, Jesus declared himself to be God: do you know when that was?Pontius Pilate before and after Christ’s passion: where he came from and what happened to him afterwards“He burst asunder and all his bowels gushed out”: St. Luke’s little-known description of the death of JudasThe incestuous marriage that led to the death of John the BaptistPontius Pilate: why he admired — but condemned — JesusWhat Barabbas really did, and why that led the crowd to demand Pilate release him instead of JesusWhy, so quickly, Palm Sunday’s “Hosannas” led to Good Friday’s “Crucify him!"Who Christ blamed for his plight, and to what extentThe likely location of the crucifixion, and that spot in particular was chosenThe statue of Venus erected over Golgotha and of Jupiter over the Holy Sepulcher: who did it and how it helped later generations of ChristiansHow Roman methods deliberately increased the shame and pain of crucifixionHow Christ great sufferings on the cross confirmed — rather than falsified — the truth of his divinityWhy, after His death, the Sanhedrin still feared JesusAnd much more to enrich your knowledge, understanding, and love of Jesus!
