by V.G. Bortin
Published: February 11, 2012
It is the Shroud of Turin. In Image of a Man is the cornerstone of two powerful dramas: a twentieth-century story of romance, suspense and faith - and a richly detailed account of the Shroud's own journey through two thousand years of man's history; wherever those who protected the Shroud lived, loved, fought and died.
