This book deals with the theology of Our Lady of Guadalupe - of the apparition and of the tilma and of the sacred image of the crucified Christ on the holy Shroud of Turin. This book also provides scriptural and scientific information concerning the Turin Shroud and the tilma. In this book the author has taken it upon himself to share his exhaustive review on the attempts to discredit the Tilma of Blessed Juan Diego and the Shroud of Turin. He divides the book into two separate sections. We are then shown why such claims are not scientific and that these relics are an effective demonstration of the credibility of our Savior and the mystery of the cross. The author is mainly concerned with the questions of credibility and apologetics in this study; we are invited to accept the miracle of these icons as divinely appointed. And he shows how the scientific community could not disprove their authenticity. In fact this book shares the fraudulent carbon-fourteen test of 1998, which has been rejected by the prestigious scientific journal, Science Today, is answered by hard factual evidence to the contrary. There are many accompanying photos and illustrations in the book, and the books supplies many references, which are available for further reading. ( )
