There is a nice, well-written story in the Decatur Daily (Alabama) newspaper about an upcoming Shroud Encounter lecture: Expert to trace story of Shroud of Turin mystery.
“This is the greatest unsolved mystery and it will remain a mystery,” said Russ Breault, of Peachtree City, Ga. “We can apply what we have learned from science, but we will never be able to prove or disprove the shroud’s authenticity. For that, we would need DNA.”
If you are in the Tennessee Valley area this Sunday note that:
. . . leading expert, Breault will present his findings in “Shroud Encounter” at Parkview Baptist Church in Decatur on Sunday. The free multimedia presentation will take place from 6-7:30 p.m.
The “CSI”-style presentation features more than 200 images exploring the history, archaeology, forensics and theology of the shroud and a life-size photo replica.
“It is like a fast-moving motion picture, not some boring lecture,” Breault said. “We will explore the different theories and ask the question, ‘If this is a real image, could it be Jesus?’ ”
Todd Evans, pastor at Parkview Baptist, recommended the presentation for both believers and non-believers.
Where haven’t you been lately, Russ?
