I rarely have the luxury of time to read fiction. Jerome Corsi’s novel arrived just when I needed to immerse myself in something other than the current state of the Soros/Obama destruction. It only took the first few pages to have me completely hooked.
Catholic priest and brilliant physicist, Father Bartholomew survives a horrific car crash. He endures an agonizing period of rehabilitation before embarking on his true mission: to bring the message of the Shroud of Turin to humanity.
Corsi masterfully blends faith and science to show that there is no conflict at the highest levels of both. In fact, the more we know about science, particularly physics, the less we understand about the nature of reality.
Father Bartholomew is treated by the cynical psychiatrist, Dr. Stephen Castle whose career was built arguing that religion is a hoax and is the root cause of all human suffering. Castle enlists a career skeptic who also has a stake in debunking alleged miracles.
Father Bartholomew has just thirty days to complete his mission. Bartholomew’s suffering is intense, he begins to experience stigmata and other miracles which attract worldwide attention. Eventually, the Pope himself gets involved and the mystery expands to the origin of the Shroud of Turin—an endlessly fascinating subject.
The story is told through dialog, which makes for a lively read and Corsi’s knowledge of both science and religion makes The Shroud Codex a compelling read during these harrowing times.
Something tells me that Corsi isn’t quite done with Dr. Castle yet—hopefully there will be a sequel .
