Can you help me sell 1000 books before the end of March? I received a message from Josh Baker, the Director of Operations at ThinAir Data and he said, “One down, 999 to go.”
The book is titled “The Resurrection: A Criminal Investigation of the Mysterious Disappearance of the Body of the Crucified Criminal Jesus of Nazareth”.
Here is an excerpt:
“In summary, Jesus broke no Roman Law. I don’t know why His body disappeared. Someone stole it but I can’t imagine who…I imagine that is why Pontius Pilate washed his hands of the whole matter.”
Before Saul could continue, Quintus interrupted, “What do you mean ‘wash his hands?’ We know nothing of that from his dispatches to Rome.”
“Can I assume you know nothing of the actual details of the trial and execution?”
“Yes. Please assume I know nothing and tell me everything you know.”
Saul looked at him quizzically, and then began.
You can learn more about the author, Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino here: http://www.roccoleonardmartino.com/ but I will go into some detail if you want to continue reading now.
Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino wrote the book only HE could write.
Dr. Martino has been knighted five times. Most significant is his Papal Knighthood in the Order of St. Gregory the Great awarded by Pope John Paul II in 1991. Dr. Martino has served on various Public Service, Charitable, and Church Organizations. He served a Vice Chair of the Board of the Gregorian University Consortium Foundation from 1982-1998. He served as a member of various public service Boards, including: St. Joseph’s University from 1989-1998; Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, 1988-2010; Order of Malta, 1999-2005; Vatican Observatory, 1993-1999, 2002-2008; and was Founding Chairman and served from 1985-1989 with the MBF Foundation dedicated to applying computer technology for those with severe physical and/or mental handicaps. Dr. Martino has also served on various Corporate Boards over the past fifty years.
Dr. Martino’s book, “The Resurrection”, was written when one if his sons challenged him to write a definitive book on the Resurrection. At first Dr, Martino thought it was an oxymoron. On further reflection and research he realized there was book of this nature that would appeal to the general public. All the books he examined were scholarly research works more suited to colleges and seminaries than for the casual reader. He chose to write a novel, true to the historical facts. In order to write this historically correct fictional novel, Dr. Martino examined commentaries centered around the political machinations that surrounded the murder of Jesus.
People, ask if the main protagonist in “The Resurrection” is a real person? Dr. Martino answers:
“I studied the history carefully. Quintus, the Roman Tribune sent by Emperor Tiberius could have existed. Such a person would logically have been sent by Tiberius to discover what was happening. His existence is plausible. I am not getting any younger. I share this gift with you.”
Dr. Martino is the author of twenty-one published books, including three novels, as well as scores of papers, and numerous corporate monographs. He is listed in various biographical anthologies. He is a Rocket Scientist and invented the first Smart Phone.
Dr. Martino is a lifetime member of the Union League of Philadelphia, a member of the Overbrook Golf Club in Bryn Mawr, and of the Yacht Club of Sea Isle City. He is an avid sailor, and a Past Commodore of the Yacht Club – 1974 – a member of the Board from 1971-1990, and Chairman 1984-90. He has served as Commodore of the Mid-Atlantic Yacht Racing Association from 1979-1981, and Secretary from 1981-1988.
Note from Gayle Gross, the author of this article:
“When you are called, answer in extraordinary ways.” It is a message I hear almost daily since Rocky came back into my life at the beginning of March. I shed tears of of joy for the value he has shared through his life’s work. I am thankful to have the opportunity to assist him in getting his word out through this book. He struggles daily with his health. He receives a vaccine of attenuated TB virus each week to stimulate his immune system. My dream is to see him well enough to travel again, and sign this book in person. Through this experience I hope to restore my faith in loving kindness.
