Since no man knows the future, who can tell him what is to come? || Ecclesiastes 8:7

If you’ve ever dreamt of spending time with Jesus during his earthly journey, this forceful and ultimately gut-wrenching thriller will, perhaps, be the nearest you’ll ever come to.

At first glance I was deeply intrigued, not because it was something which I was looking for, but for the unusual title and the setting of the story. I was led to presume that it would be a boring fare, with undecipherable scenes and jargons employed to finish the product that it is. But in the end, I was left wanting for more…

Quest for the Nail Prints is a truly new concept of story-telling which is both engaging, edifying and enriching. Though I have shied away from reading secular novels with time-traveling as a theme, Don Furr’s unique style and narrative, coupled with the setting of the plot from known historical documents and Bible scriptures we are familiar with makes it an interesting and fascinating read.

The book is set in the final days of the life of Jesus Christ and centers around three twenty-first century travelers who are transported back in time to Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday where they come face to face with the Nazarene Jesus – a young female doctor, a professor of religious studies and a pastor.

Quest for the Nail Prints is the story of how their lives intertwined and how they were changed when they encountered Jesus Christ.

Equally unique, if not more, was the hole shown on the cover. It was punched right through to the back cover. The book and its unique story is mostly likely to fill that gaping hole in your life.

Personally, Quest for the Nail Prints is a life-changing book which has made me to sit up and look at the Master as the bridge between my head and my heart.
