Pictures by Schwortz and Narrative by Wilson! Perfect!
on 2 October 2002
This book has the best, most detailed pictures of the shroud that i have ever seen. It gives detailed close up images of the surface. The arguments about the Shroud still rage on, but Wilson is regarded by most as an authority on the Shroud. His comments combined with images by Barrie Schwortz, the official photographer for the research team looking at the shroud, give the reader a highly detailed and intelligent insight in to the Shroud of Turin.
All the expert evidence gathered by the official research team is pretty much presented in this text. Another fantastic part of the book is Wilson's presentation of the evidence that traces the Shroud back to the 1st Century. He is the first person to have done so sucessfully, and his case is very strong.
This book is a must for anyone researching the Shroud of Turin. ALthough it does strongly argue that the Shroud is genuine, it can easily just be taken as a presentation of the evidence and the reader can make his own conclusions. An excellent book with breathtaking images!
