Overview

Raymond N. Rogers was the head of the chemistry experiments for the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), the team of 24 researchers that performed the first ever in-depth scientific examination of the relic in 1978. He was a professional chemist for 52 years and spent 35 years as a research chemist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, until his retirement in 1988. Rogers shares his frank and often-unvarnished personal perspectives on his 30 year involvement in Shroud studies. He details his own research and backs it up with solid observations, chemical analysis and microscopy. He provides us with his own theory of the Shroud's image formation and his own opinion on its authenticity. He discusses the role of religion and science and how each has impacted Shroud research. Most importantly, he discusses the possible future for the Shroud itself. Rogers' unique perspective, straightforward style and in-depth knowledge will both inform and enlighten you.

    a careful, scientific review

    This is a rather unusual book regarding the Shroud of Turin. It does not make a statement about whether or not the Shroud is the burial cloth of Jesus. It questions some of the findings that I am aware of without stating that they are wrong, merely that the author is not certain that they are right. Instead what the author does concentrate on though is his particular field of expertise, that is chemistry. He views the Shroud as being a material object that may be studied via chemistry, and proceeds to do just that. His writing can get rather technical, but with some effort and a basic knowledge of chemistry, it can be followed. Some points I checked with chemists I have contact with, just to clarify them, but I found I basically understood what he had said, so it was not necessary. Overall I found it to be a marvelous new approach to the question of the Shroud, and one that seems to provide a logical answer as to how the image came to be.
