    Balanced, presenting both sides so you can make a decision

    The Truth about the Shroud of Turin is unique in that it's not for or against the validity of the Shroud. Wilcox has studied the Shroud for decades, and presents arguments both for and against dating back centuries. Wilcox gives you the tools the make your own decision about whether or not this actually is the burial shroud of Jesus.
