More About Catherine Emmerich, Anne Catherine Emmerich & Emmerich
Anne Catherine Emmerich was born to poor parents at Westphalia, Germany in 1774. When she was twenty-eight years old she became an Augustinian nun at Dulmen, and apparently began to experience ecstasies as a result of spiritual favors. She received the Stigmata in 1813, confined to her bed, and reportedly convinced a vicar-general, Overberg, and three physicians of her sanctity. She later reported that she had seen visions of Christ and the souls in purgatory as a child, as well as a circular core with three sections representing the Trinity. She is the author of "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ," "The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary," "Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations," and "The Bitter Passion and the Life of Mary." Anne Emmerich died on February 9, 1824 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004.
Reviews - What do customers think about Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations (4 Volumes)?
What these revelations meant to me Feb 25, 2006
I read these books 45 years ago but gave them away when we moved to another location. After finding out that "The Passion of Christ" movie was based on Catherine Emerich's cloistered life of visionary expierience, I wanted to read them again. As they had been out of print 45 years ago - I didn't expect to find them now - but God bless this site.Com for having them available. The details contained in the Life of Jesus Christ revealed in these documents are awe inspiring and deeply revealing to the true nature of Christ and His Mission. This knowledge balances out that of an anti-christ philosophy that one finds prevelant in today's society. I recommend them highly!
A must read for all Christians Nov 8, 2005
This four volume set is an absolute must read for all Christians.The information in these four books is so amazing that you will not put them down.These books answer all critics of the bible who say that the information in it is not reliable. Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich gives a detailed account of the ministry of Christ with a tremendous amount of information not given in the New Testament. Among the things that she reveals is Christ's journey to Cypress and his preaching the Gospel to Jews and Pagans there. When reading these four volumes you feel like you are watching a video of Christ's life with so much detailed information about people and places not mentioned in the New Testament. A detailed history of Salvation is given from the time of Adam to Mary's death. An absolute must have for your library.
An excellent book that provides many answers Oct 21, 2005
This book is simply great! It fills in a lot of gaps in the Bible accounts of the prophets and Jesus. The energy expended by Jesus and John the Baptist in their ministries is captured in full colour with details of places, the customs of different peoples, in rich description, which makes it all the more convincing since the visionary had never known to have been at those places or known these sitting in Germany! At the same time there is no indication of someone else of more sophisticated knowledge having written these things as her simplicity shines through at times that only serve to authenticate the book. I was particularly touched by the accounts of John the Baptist and came across with a feeling of awe for the tremendous workaholic (if you can call it that) spirit of our own Lord who never seemed to tire of doing His work. A book that will definitely deepen your faith and give wonderful and beautiful details not found anywhere else. When I first started, I found the initial accounts between creation and Abraham a little hard to believe but found that the author actually cross references the same later on in the next three books, in another period as actually influencing pagan beliefs. But the rest is such easy reading especially when trying to understand the gaps in the four Gospels. I also found the reason that the visonary "sees" for God allowing creation to continue uptil the present time from the fall of the angels very convincing. An excellent set of books worth every penny, absolutely worth reading over and over to understand the contributions of the holy men of old.
Second reading Aug 24, 2005
I read this book set 15 years ago, when it was in a smaller print. I was half way through when I resolved to mark the most interesting things the next time I read them (highly recommended). These books are some of the most unique reading that I have ever done. The books start with creation and the fall of man, and end with redemption, but with details that are nowhere else available. The names and relationships of many, many people are given, along with customs, dress, landscapes, colors, smells, temperatures, and many other details that are available only to one who was actually present at the time. Many times, the current state of things are compared to what they were 1900 years prior. The biggest impact of reading these books is the realization of the incredible energy that Jesus expended in teaching, exorcising devils, and curing all sorts of diseases of both body and soul; and how His enemies, the Pharisees, chose to kill Him, rather than lose their cushy, powerful and prestigious positions. The Biblical revelations are nothing short of incredible. The most interesting Biblical revelation for me is the detailed description of the contents of the Ark of the Covenant, and how one item from the Ark was used at the conception of Mary.
Making the Gospels Come to Life Jul 11, 2005
Jesus told Anne Catherine Emmerich that she is the greatest visionary to ever walk the planet, but this did not effect her humility. She is a very holy nun who gives us a new perspective on Jesus and fills in the information the bible leaves out. For instance, the sinner who Anoints Jesus with costly perfume is Mary Magdelan, and she is the sister of Martha and Lazarous. Buy the books they are worth every penny. I am living in Germany and paid the international shipping. My order got messed up and I only received the second book. It took me a week to read it. this sites customer service was great, they reordered the four volume set and paid the shipping, the next time I only received the first book, finally they reimbursed me and told me I could keep the two books. Hopefully they have fixed the problem by now. I am waiting for a reseller to sell the 3rd and 4th books singularly. If this doesn't happen, I plan on reordering the entire set.
