Shrouded in Silence
The Townsends don't realize how vulnerable they are to attack from two sides: Dr. Albert Stein, a German scholar envious of their successful projects and a terrorist group known as the "Scorpion" which wants to rid Italy of all Americans. Even when a bomb destroys the Townsends' office, Jack Townsend holds firm to a belief that humanity's struggles are the only way healing will ever come to the world.
In a riveting final confrontation beneath the baptistry of the Church of St. John of Lateran, an unexpected surprise is revealed about the ending of Mark's Gospel and the value of redemptive suffering.
