This is the only book of its kind on the two most famous and controversial images in existence-the holy image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the tilma of Juan Diego, and the sacred image of the crucified Christ on the holy Shroud of Turin. Written by a scientist-religious, it is a good rebuttal of those who would say either of these images is a fraud. Besides introducing the reader to the story behind these miraculous images of Jesus and Mary, it is an excellent resource book bringing the reader up to date with the latest findings from experts in the field of sindonology. The fraudulent carbon-fourteen test of 1998, which has been rejected by the prestigious scientific journal, Science Today, is answered by hard factual evidence to the contrary. Illustrated with many photos.
