Overview

Portrait of Jesus? is a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute account of the Shroud of Turin which, according to legend, was the garment that covered Jesus in the tomb. Frank Tribbe has for many years been a member of the elite group of scientists and researchers studying the Shroud. His book takes all their findings into account to show that, contrary to claims it is a medieval hoax, the Shroud is an authentic first-century relic from the Near East, probably Palestine, and is therefore likely to be precisely what legend maintains. The massive evidence which Tribbe presents from decades of research makes Portrait of Jesus? the best resource for knowledge about the Shroud.



This edition contains updates on all findings to the present. It shows that the 1988 report of the Shroud’s age as 14th century is false, based on bad science, and that the Shroud is actually an authentic first century relic from the Middle East. Tribbe carefully distinguishes between and facts personal views and theories.

Is that were true, what significance would it have for you and society in general? Frank Tribbe does a phenomenal job of pulling together all the existing history, research and information as well as 29 photographs to explore these questions in this fascinating book."
Catholic News Service - James C. O'Neill
“This book pulls together all existing information on the Shroud, its history, chemical and physical characteristics, and the findings of modern science. It also provides ingenius theories of how the Shroud found its way from the Jerusalem of the Apostles to the France of the 14th century. The cloth was, in Frank Tribbe’s words, ‘the world’s oldest photograph’.… The reasonable man may find it harder than he imagines to dismiss the Shroud of Turin after r

Portrait of Jesus?: The Shroud of Turin in Science and History 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Excellent! The subject is extremely well researched and presented. It meticulously lays out the facts and theories of the shroud, both for and against its authenticity. The reader is equipped to properly rationalize the facts and establish an opinion on the matter. The evidence clearly demonstrates the shroud to be authentic in all respects, and this book would serve as an excellent basis for a three or four part documentary film.
