A Time Travel Novel - A Journey to Jerusalem with Christ during Passion Week

"Quest for the Nail Prints" is a time travel novel with a supernatural intervention in the lives of the three protagonists, Elizabeth Stewart, a resident physician, and Pastor Paul Ryann, both from Memphis, and Professor Leonardo Van Eaton from George Town University.

Unrelated Circumstances bring the three together on an International air flight going to Jerusalem. The professor found himself stranded in Jerusalem when his connecting flight for India was canceled. The physician's assignment was not scheduled to begin for three days. Paul Ryann, the minister, was fulfilling a lifetime dream of visiting the Holy land.

The three joined signed up for a local bus tour for a day of sight-seeing in the city of Jerusalem. At the first scenic stop the bus made, Ryann witnessed a criminal act. Soon the trio found themselves in life threatening danger. Suddenly they discovered they were in the midst of a mysterious experience taking them back in time to a Jerusalem at the beginning of Passion Week. They became players with the twelve apostles in the upper room, participating in the last supper with Jesus.

The story that follows takes Dr. Stewart and Pastor Ryann on a spiritual journey with Jesus for the entire Passion Week right up to Calvary. Professor Van Eaton ventures out on an adventure that leads him in another direction.

Reading "Quest for the Nail Prints" became a memorable experience for me. The teachings of Jesus took on a new meaning as the Holy Spirit used Don Furr to bring his Words to the page in a new way as I was transported back in time to follow Jesus and the disciples on the final days leading to Golgotha and the Crucifixion. I found that although I was transfixed by the story line, and Furr's writing I had to take time outs for assimilation and reflection on the purpose behind the message of cross. This is a book that will long linger in my thoughts in a way that will have an impact on my reading of the scriptures in the days, weeks, months, and years to come.

"Quest for the Nail Prints" is an unusual time travel novel with a focus on melding plot, character development, theme, and suspense. Don Furr has a remarkable gift for story telling and riveting writing that leads to a supernatural encounter with Jesus.
