About this Book

A young French priest historian finds a shroud buried in the wall, knowing of the work that is being done at the University of Arizona he brings it to Tucson to be dated. The priest assumes it will be another middle aged artifact. When the priest arrives at the University of Arizona the shorud is taken by a team of biologists. Amongst this team is a young molecular biologist who is able to take a sample from the shroud and extract DNA from it and make a recombinant DNA molecule from a blood satin that is on the shroud. As the dating proceeds they find that the shroud dates to 30 A.D. This shroud could be the real one and now he has a clone that could be the DNA of Christ.
