It is the near future, and a genetic research team from the NIH is asked by the Vatican to use the latest findings of the Human Genome Project to shed new light on the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. The lead researcher, Robert Strickland M.D.,MoreIt is the near future, and a genetic research team from the NIH is asked by the Vatican to use the latest findings of the Human Genome Project to shed new light on the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. The lead researcher, Robert Strickland M.D., is an agnostic with spiritual leanings. But as the inquiry proceeds, it appears that this is indeed the burial cloth of the historical Jesus-and the vestments bloodstains open up the possibility of cloning.

The ensuing investigative journey-from Washington D.C., to Israel, to Belize-has global repercussions, and transforms the lives of all involved. The Shroud is an adventure novel in the vein of Carl Sagans Contact-exploring many of todays news-making scientific, spiritual, and ethical questions. The story has no sectarian agenda. At bottom, the message is one of decoupling spirituality from religious dogma, while better exploring mystical and transcendent pursuits with cutting edge technology. The Shroud resonates with the works of Deepak Chopra, Michael Crichton, and Stephen Hawking.
