Novel: The Shroud Codex

A good friend of mine was recently blessed to be among the first to see the Shroud of Turin when it was unveiled last Saturday. And he was hardly alone out there, as Zenit reports:

The exhibition of the Holy Shroud of Turin, which began Saturday, will have 1.5 million visitors before it closes on May 23.

On the first day of the exposition, over 12,000 people viewed the Shroud, 480 of whom came from abroad to the Cathedral of Turin to venerate what is believed to be the cloth Christ was buried in. 

Pope Benedict will visit Turin and the Shroud on May 2nd.

A new novel by Catholic author Jerome Corsi which features the Shroud as its central dramatic object is not only experiencing strong sales, but is also receiving favorable reviews from the Catholic press. My copy is in the mail now, and I can’t wait to read it (I always like finding some good non-fiction reading this time of year).

You can read an interview with the author about his novel at CatholicExchange, and a podcast interview of the author conducted by Catholic Families for America.

And of course, if you need no more convincing, it’s easily available on Amazon here.
