This book is something of a nonsense. It is almost the opposite of its title—Sensing the Passion. We will focus on the final hours of Jesus Christ by choosing some events for their sentient power. By looking at the Passion ofJesus in such a relatively isolated way, I am asking you to commit a “non-sensical” act.
Why is it non-sensical? In each chapter of what follows we will look at the Passion through one sense only. We will progress through sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. And with each progression we will lose another sensation. But losing a sensory power, or indeed gaining one, does not make a person any less a person. A person is whole, complete, irrespective of the number of functioning faculties.
