Let the hearts that seek the Lord
rejoice; turn to the Lord and his
strength; constantly seek his face.
Psalm 105:3-4 The American Confraternity of the Holy Shroud
The Critical Summary supports the mission of the American Confraternity of the Holy Shroud to spread knowledge about the Shroud throughout the Americas. We urge you to buy a copy of the book and to carefully study it. We believe you will be profoundly moved by the data and information you encounter. If that is the case, we would ask that you join the ACHS mission and use this extraordinary book as an educational tool not only for yourself, but also as a valuable gift for other members of your family, those graduating from school, those being confirmed, RCIA members, and friends both inside and outside of the practicing Catholic faith and the extended Christian community. The Shroud of Turin book offers the opportunity to share knowledge of the Holy Shroud and its implications for not only Christians, but for all who seek the Truth.
The Shroud of Turin: A Critical Summary of Observations, Data and Hypotheses, has been published by the ACHS education partner, the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado, to support the mission of the ACHS. The work is an up-to-date summary of the corpus of Shroud evidence, both empirical and historical, that collectively act to support a rational judgment that the Shroud is indeed the actual burial cloth that once wrapped the body of Jesus of Nazareth in the tomb. The Shroud stands uniquely at the intersection of Faith and Science, two domains that many unfortunately and mistakingly see as irreconcilable.
Revenue derived from the sale of the book is used to support the training of Shroud presenters and the field work of the Confraternity.
The Confraternity would love to hear from you and we invite you to join us in bringing information related to the Shroud of Turin to the peoples of the Americas.
