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!

Ian Wilson presents the lattest research and news on the Shroud. Some of the pictures are exclusive to this book. I particularly enjoyed the balance point of view and the common sense arguments that cast a doubt on the radiocarbon dating. Wilson has been the most prolefic and knowledgable author on the Shroud; this book proves it once again. His clear presentation with the accompanying pictures from Barrie Schwortz makes it a pleasant reading. The book touches on many aspect of the Shroud. In particular, his theory of the cloth of Edessa being the Shroud of Turin is presented once again, yet in a concise form; which makes it more compelling. The skeptics keep stating that the Shroud left no historical trace before 1355, but Wilson proves otherwise.

Format: Hardcover
The book begins with the dismissal of the Turin Shroud as a fake following radio-cabon dating in 1988. It then shows, with thorough reference to the considerable body of work done on the Shroud and its image, how the verdict that the Shroud was a medieval forgery stretches the imagination more severely than the view that it comes from first-century Palestine. The supposed forger would have had to have had knowledge of reprographic techniques, botanical science and textiles which is simply implausible. The book also shows how carbon dating can give wildly inaccurate results, and why. This is not the work of a wide-eyed zealot but of sceptical and balanced experts in this field who became convinced that the Shroud is no mere fake.
