Image of the Risen Christ

( 2 )

Overview

Millions of Christians became intensely interested in the Shroud of Turin when photographs of the negative image were published throughout the world. These photos revealed a crucified body in extraordinary detail. The man of the Shroud it seemed, suffered and died very much the way the Gospels say Jesus of Nazareth suffered and died.

    Author's Comments

    Twenty-three years ago I was asked to be the spokesman and editor for a research team that came to be known as STURP (The Shroud of Turin Research Project).Thus began for me an advocation that continues as fervently for me now as then: the study of the Shroud of Turin. While my first book on the subject, Verdict on the Shroud became an international bestseller, it was not without its problems. Nor was the total depth of the Shroud known at that time. Image of the Risen Christ is for me what I trust will prove to be a fair, balanced yet comprehensive study of all the evidence to date: both pro and con. My desire is that the reader be able to reach his/her own conclusions based on the facts and nothing else. The publisher, Grant Jeffrey and Frontier Research Publications have an excellent reputation for their numerous scholarly works in the vast field of Biblical Studies and Apologetics. With their editorial expertise, and guidance, I trust that this work will be for the audience a most readable yet thorough and fair presentation of what may argueably be the most exciting Archaeological find of all time. Not to mention a scientifically and intellectually challenging piece of evidence in support of the Gospel record of the death burial and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, Dr Kenneth Stevenson, Author

    Get the Facts on the Shroud of Turin and Decide for Yourself

    Dr. Stevenson has done an excellent job presenting history, facts, and new scientific evidence on the Shroud of Turin. He presents the pros and cons and allows the reader to form their own opinion. And after reading this book, you will have an opinion... Dr. Stevenson was the official spokesman for the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) in the late 70s. He brings the findings of his research and expertise to this book. Having read his two former books on the Shroud back in the 80's, (The Shroud and the Controversy and Verdict on the Shroud), I was eager for a recap and an update on new research. This book will not disappoint you. Whether you have been following the research on the Shroud for years or you are new to the study, you will find this book well-written and very interesting. Dr. Stevenson's latest book will provoke you to intense thought about Jesus, who He was, and the price He paid.
