From the Author
This is my most important book because it has to do with the most important issue in life - life and death. I'm a journalist by trade. I do the best I can to give you the facts, pro and con. I would be derelict in my duty if I didn't. Both sides enables YOU to make the call.
The Shroud of Turin is a scientific mystery - not a religious tract. After 100 years of scientific inquiry in the relic science has not been able to solve the shroud's mysteries. It's greatest proponents are scientists - not religionists. Carbon 14 tests made in the 1980s were wrong. You can read why in the book. The more scientists examine the facts of the shroud, the more mystery they uncover.
If you like true mystery, if you are in anyway concerned with history and religion, if you are a Christian and are interested in the history of your faith, The Truth About the Shroud of Turin will be well worth your time. Whatever you are or believe, this book will challenge you to come up with answers. And if you do, please let me know.

Prior to reading "The Truth About The Shroud of Turin" I had only a rudimentary understanding of the shroud. I had very little understanding of the many wide ranging theories about the origins of how the faint image of a man was transferred (created) on to the shroud.... thought by many to be Christ. The bedrock of Christendom sets on the faith that Christ died on the cross for our sins and was resurrected. I also understand the political ramifications to the nay sayers - nonbelievers whose worst nightmare would be the validation that the shroud image is in deed that of Christ and that Christ came back to life.
In almost every aspect of life and man's existence on earth, there has been and will continue to be unanswered mysteries that even the best sciences are incapable of answering. However, it is my humble belief that Bob Wilcox, based on his many travels around the world seeking the truth regarding The Shroud Of Turin, has come about as close as humanly possible having confirmed that the image is none other than the body of Christ and his likeness. I have no doubt that the evidence also tells us the story of Christ's torturous, excruciating suffering by crucifixion and the compelling evidence that Christ was resurrected.
I highly recommend "The Truth About The Shroud Of Turin!"
following his crucifiction) and the varied controversies that have attended it.
Much attention is given the numerous credible and less so critics and supporters of
this unique object. The book's conclusion is the writer's own assessment of the
Shroud, to which he lends the authority of historical perspective.
This is a fascinating subject and the Shroud is an object of vastly under reported
importance to Christianity and to understanding the apotheosis of Jesus of Nazareth.
This book is a seminal work and opens a new horizon to the believing Christian that
can accommodate modern science and essential belief.
