Mysterious Shroud

Ian Wilson, Author, Vernon Miller, Illustrator Doubleday Books $19.95 (158p) ISBN 978-0-385-19074-9
In a sequel to The Shroud of Turin, Wilson delivers a balanced account of results from tests by STURP (Shroud of Turin Research Project, in Italy) in 1978. He details findings that convince him that the Shroud is Christ's burial cloth, a conclusion supported by Miller's photos. In color and black-and-white, the illustrations show the imagethe positive side of the fabric's negative imprintof a human being. Wilson, nevertheless, also reports theories of experts who claim the Shroud is a forgery, and he speculates on answers that may be forthcoming from further technical examinations, including the possibility of carbon dating. His reasonable and lucid account should attract many readers, skeptics as well as those who believe in the miraculous nature of the Shroud. February 28
