The Shroud of Turin; the sacred burial cloth that covered Jesus after he was crucified.
1988 in a quiet vet office, Father Joseph, Father Anthony and Father Michael have decided its time to take matters into their own hands. . . . .
With the help of a scientist they will attempt to clone Jesus. This will be the first attempt of human cloning. A baby will is being boy is being delivered to Mary and his name is Christian. The priest have no doubt that GOD will walk among them once more. It will be the end of wars, no crime and will be heaven on earth. GOD will right the world . . .at least that is the plan.
As Christian is growing and maturing those closest to him will see that things are not right, not natural and just plain wrong. At an early age he began playing harmful pranks, he could even over power his eye color. At the age of 25 Christian was a millionaire and very powerful. Once several suicides started popping up detective Denny Hopper started to take notice along with the three priest. There were no miracles being performed like the priest had hoped, impossible things would happen but no miracles. When the priest finally admitted they put they put GOD's will into their own hands and made him NOT GOD, they knew they needed to fix it.
Christian told people he was an angel, the kind that clean ups GOD's messes. Many believed that if they died Christian would bring them back from the dead, but Christians real plan was something totally different . . . . .
The Shroud is an awesome read. I could not put this one down once I had it started. To think there are those that really think they can play GOD. I loved all the characters and they were so well written and easy to read. There is not alot of history that weighs this story down. There is just the right amount of good verses evil in this story. The horror part to me is that there is people out there today that would do something like this. GREAT READ ! ! !
