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.Was this review helpful?
