Reviews - What do customers think about The Crucifixion of Jesus, Second Edition, Completely Revised and Expanded: A Forensic Inquiry?

Powerful insight into an emotionally-charged topic  Apr 18, 2008
I actually used this book as research for my own work, and found it to be quite comprehensive and relatively objective in its approach. Granted, some details are assumed based upon scripture and other historical data, so one hsould not mistake this as an absolute, factual account, but for those interested in having a more starkly detailed portrayal of what might have happened during Jesus' crucifixion, this is a valuable resource.
 
A serious study of the crucifixion  Oct 11, 2007
This book is a great book for the serious student of the cross. The doctor does several studies of the crucifixion process. He reveals some truth that will break some common myths about how Jesus died. Not for the casual student.
 
Incomparable  Aug 31, 2007
I'll try to be brief. This is surely the most balanced point-and-counterpoint book to date, about forensic archaeology and the Shroud of Turin. Scientifically, nothing else I have seen comes close.
 
Moving  Jan 9, 2007
Dr. Zugibe has done a spectacular job of research over the years. Although this book is difficult to read (emotionally), it is one that should be read. I always knew that Christ suffered greatly, but never to the extent that He really did. This account has opened my eyes and has changed my life. Since I read his book, I have not been able to think of anything except what love Jesus has for us all. Everyone should know what He truly endured for each one of us. The book is life changing.
 
5 Stars for one reason only...  Jun 25, 2006
I agree with the other reviewer here that the book is rather disorganized, but its one unimpeachable value is the author's brief explanation at the beginning about his attempt to help Mel Gibson get it right, and his logical and commonsense dismissal of the outrageous and exaggerated unrealism of the Gibson portrayal. Too bad Gibson didn't listen.

Interestingly, Pierre Barbet makes an observation in his book on the medical aspects of the Passion that would have also served to rein in Gibson's blood lust and helped him, perhaps, produce a film far truer and more powerful than what has been claimed for it: Speaking of visual art of the Passion, Barbet writes:

"Actually, those pictures which are meant to be the most realistic are the ones which contain the most blatant physiological errors...When a crucifix is designed to stir our emotions by displaying to us the atrocious nature of the torment, so much the further is it from the truth. I know I shall be attacked for this, but still, it has to be said; if from the artistic standpoint I am able to appreciate the pictorial values of a Grunewald [he is here referring, I surmise, to the Isenheim altarpiece, one of the most gruesome potraits of the Crucifixion ever produced], the contorted way in which he paints the Crucified seems to me to be purely grotesque. I can assure you that the Passion was both more simple and infinitely more tragic than that," (page 28, 1963 Image paperback edition of "A Doctor at Calvary").

For all their disagreement with each other, we can assume that Zugibe and Barbet would be completely one in critcizing Mel Gibson's allegedly "most realistic" presentation of the Passion as grotesque nonsense, and I'm glad Zugibe could go on the record as a medical expert and say so.
