This author has crafted an intriguing story filled with suspense, heart, humor, and wit. The premise is absolutely brilliant. Using scientific and technical details, he convincingly suggests that by manipulating quantum physics, humans truly could obtain superhuman powers, an aspect that makes a seemingly implausible story theoretically possible.
Clearly this author researched the subject of the Shroud of Turin thoroughly. Details concerning the Shroud are fascinating, many of which I was previously unaware of, even though I have studied the Shroud extensively. This novel also makes other compelling arguments for Christianity but doesn’t shy away from telling both sides of the story.
Not only does this author tell the main story thread, but he also gives compelling backstories to explain the rationale for the characters’ actions. I found the back stories just as compelling and suspenseful as the main story line.
Congratulations to the author for an outstanding debut novel. I look forward to reading more from him in the future.

Stolen Shroud is by far the best Christian thriller in recent memory. Nothing about the story is vanilla, shallow, or naive. This is a tour de force of very real and mature struggles with faith and skepticism packaged inside a gripping science fantasy rollercoaster. Magic, love, and gritty adventure are seamlessly interwoven into a high-tech, philosophical, far-reaching narrative that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Not to be missed.

The book switches back and forth chapter by chapter [from
present to past]. At first, I found this annoying. Why do I give a rip about
this guy’s childhood when I want to know what happened to the Shroud? However,
as time went on, I found something happening.
While I came skeptical and at first was having a hard time
getting into it, before too long, I found out that I was. I wanted to know what
happened. I found, in the end, a story with many threads that weaved together
in a wonderful way.
The villain of this story was one of the most diabolical ones that I have come across and it was fascinating how all of that came together. . . This was truly one of the great villains.

Stolen Shroud is Christian literature at its finest. The fascinating mystery of the disappearance of the Shroud of Turin is complemented perfectly by issues about doubt and skepticism. Christians and non-Christians alike will agree that this perfect package of sci-fi, religion and humanity, is not like any other book out there. It’s depth and personality sticks with you.
