Apart from the hard science, which includes appendices, tables, indices, and a glossary, Danin presents with an entertaining writing style various interesting anecdotes about his involvement in the research he has done on the Shroud.This is a book that should be in every sindonologist's library.(Synopsis Courtesy of Joe Marino) Available from: Council for Study of the Shroud of Turin P. Box 3190 Durham, North Carolina 27715-3190 USA Paperback, 104 pages Published by Danin Publishing Publication date: 2010 # ISBN-13: 978-96591520-0-1 The book addresses the many challenges posed by the Shroud.If, for example, it really was the work of a 14th century forger, how did such a person, with the limited scientific knowledge of his time, produce an artifact that can still not be replicated or even explained by 21st century sceince?His research has been published in 5 books and 182 articles in English, 5 books and 247 articles in Hebrew, 1 bilingual book and 1 Italian book.Danin, a Jew, states that he is not a profound believer in any religion and also that he had no emotional feeling when he first saw the cloth, so is a very unbiased researcher.Although the Texas scientists who have tested the blood samples for the presence of human DNA have insisted that they have insufficient DNA to determine parentage, for example, and still less for the many of any science-fiction-type 'clone' of Jesus, the Vatican authorities appear to be taking no chances.

Clearly, his findings would not preclude the Shroud's connection with Jesus.He continued his research after the STURP project concluded, but set his studies aside in frustration as unqualified "experts" presented what he considered poor quality and non-scientific "evidence" for the authenticity of the Shroud in the popular media.In the end however, new data came to light that prompted his return to Shroud research, even though he was in failing health.Most importantly, he discusses the possible future for the Shroud itself.Whether you are a qualified scientist searching for honest answers to serious questions, or simply someone casually interested in this fascinating relic, Rogers' unique perspective, straightforward style and in-depth knowledge will both inform and enlighten you.
