Is there any reading that I can download or buy to get all this info in one place?
I would love to have this to read and do further research on.
I thank you deeply for all this info you are passing on.
Your very welcome Paul, I feel its a duty for every Christian to look into things like this. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
My favorite DVD is the fabric of time by Grizzly Adams production.
This Dvd will give you alot of the newer information of the shroud and also
comes with 3d glasses so you can view the hologram they created of the image.
I enjoyed all of this DVD, but dont forget to watch the extras as they have some valuable
information on the sudarium by Ian Wilson,the top historian on the sudarium and the shroud.
They also show how the sudarium was used to cover the face of Jesus by using a live test subject
for the fitting.
Janice bennet-Sacred Blood, Sacred Image : The Sudarium of Oviedo,
New Evidence for the Authenticity of the Shroud of Turin
The Oviedo Cloth - by Mark Guscin
These are the top 2 books on the sudarium. There are very few books written on the sudarium, namely
because it doesnt contain any image at all, but its importance its importance to the shroud
is breathtaking important.
Another Fascinating book I havent read yet is an older book called
The resurrection of the shroud By mark Antonacci. Antonacci was an agnostic
that was constantly getting into arguments with his christian girlfriend,
and one day he decided he had enough with her and Christianity.
He was a lawyer by trade and he set out to prove to her that Christianity
was a fairy tale. He was waiting in line during his lunch break
and he saw a magazine with a picture of the shroud on its front cover.
He then decided to use the shroud as his starting point fordebunking Christianity.
He thought the shroud would be an open and shut case, but evidence after evidence
turned it into a 20 year research study for him, and instead of debunking His girlfriend
and christianity, he became a Christian himself.
If you really want to see some fireworks, try looking for some of Mark Antonaccis email exchanges with Ray Rogers.
Antonacci is one of the more fiery advocates of the shrouds authenticity. They really rip through each other lol.
Ray Rogers is the agnostic chemist from Los Alamos labs and it was his chemical analysis that destroyed the c14 dating
done on the shroud. This is when Ray finally started to believe that the shroud could be the burial shroud of teh historic Jesus. Whats amazing is that Rogers stayed an agnostic even till his death about 6 years back. He even stated on Video that he didnt believe in Miracles, So he held onto hope that there would eventually be a naturalistic explanation for how the shroud image was formed, but even till this day, no one has come even close.
Imagine an agnostic and former agnostic now turned christian going at it no holds barred over the shroud
This is why I keep saying if your an atheist, the shroud is like cryptonite to you.
It causes them to go against their precious reason and science and shows them that their
worldview is more emotional then intellectual.
