Antonacci has spent much of the past seventeen years investigating the Shroud of Turin.
In Resurrection of the Shroud , Mark Antonacci authoritatively and scientifically challenges radiocarbon testing and presents new evidence in determining the Shroud's true age.
He looks at archaeological artifacts and reviews scientific challenges to the issue of carbon dating. Nevertheless, patrons interested in this topic will find the book a very useful, interesting, and detailed presentation, and on that basis it is recommended.DDavid Bourquin, California State Univ., San Bernardino Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. It will, however, provide an extensive, though not necessarily balanced, introduction to issues surrounding the Shroud. Antonacci concludes that Jesus emitted a kind of radiation "that did not harm his body or immediately affect his clothes.

Unfazed in the least, Russell answered: "I would tell him: 'Not enough evidence, God. You didn't provide enough evidence.'"Well, it's 2001, and scientists have been busy at work studying the Shroud of Turin for the past twenty years. But as usual, the mass media have told everybody "the scoop" about the Shroud: "It's a fake. Radiocarbon dating proves without a doubt---three well-respected internat
