From Library Journal:

Wilson, author of The Shroud of Turin ( LJ 3/15/78), here brings up to date the debate about this alleged burial shroud of Jesus. Most importantly, he includes a great many high quality photographs by Miller, the chief photographer of the original Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP). In the first four chapters Wilson reviews background information about the shroud and the 1978 Research Project that opened much of the present discussion. He then answers the objections raised by skeptics and speculates on future testing possibilities. The book is an excellent short overview for anyone interested in the shroud controversy. The bibliographies are particularly good, including one on the papers published by the original STURP scientists. Recommended for academic and public libraries where there is reader interest. C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., W. Lafayette, Ind.

From Publishers Weekly:

In a sequel to The Shroud of Turin, Wilson delivers a balanced account of results from tests by STURP (Shroud of Turin Research Project, in Italy) in 1978. He details findings that convince him that the Shroud is Christ's burial cloth, a conclusion supported by Miller's photos. In color and black-and-white, the illustrations show the imagethe positive side of the fabric's negative imprintof a human being. Wilson, nevertheless, also reports theories of experts who claim the Shroud is a forgery, and he speculates on answers that may be forthcoming from further technical examinations, including the possibility of carbon dating. His reasonable and lucid account should attract many readers, skeptics as well as those who believe in the miraculous nature of the Shroud. February 28
