Quest for the Nail Prints


Nail print touches every page of new time travel novel
by Memphis author, Don Furr

Haven’t we all dreamed of walking with Jesus? Wondered what it would be like to talk with Him as He peers into our eyes and tells us the secrets of why? Do you long to touch His face and callused hands, knowing full well that your only response could be nothing more than a trembling smile as He brushes away your tears and gazes into your soul? What if you could touch the scars . . . trace the outline of the nail prints, like Thomas?

Quest for the Nail Prints is the story of three ordinary people chosen by God for an extraordinary journey. A journey so amazing even they have a hard time believing that it is real. Through unrelated circumstances, Dr. Elizabeth Stewart, Reverend Paul Ryann, and Professor Leonardo Van Eaton find themselves sharing a journey to the Holy Land . . . when suddenly they are thrust back in time nearly two thousand years and find themselves face to face with the rugged, radical rabbi known throughout the region as Jesus of Nazareth.

This is the story of how a personal encounter with the living Christ in His time creates the journey of a lifetime! Not only for the characters traveling within the pages of the book, but for all who take the journey with them.

With thousands of books on the market, what makes this one different? There is literally a nail print individually hand driven through the entire book, from front to back. Why the nail print?

“The idea of the nail print surfaced during the first draft,” says Don Furr. “From the very start, I knew the part the nail prints would play. The idea quickly flourished into the nail prints marking every page, much in the same way I picture the nail prints touching every page of our lives.”

  1. I had the honor and privilege of reviewing "Quest for the Nail Prints." I plan on purchasing the book to read again. I want to "feel" the difference when reading it with the nail print throughout the book. This was truly a remarkable and a must read book.

  2. I also had the honor and privlege of reviewing "Quest for the NailPrints" and I was amazed at the level of pure excitement I felt as I read the pages of what I can only pray becomes the next great work of Christian writers. The author took us on a personal journey back to the time of Christ. I laughed in parts and I cried in parts. I can not wait to take the journey
