Author: Jim O’Shea
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: March 31, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Suspense/Thriller

The Shroud of Turin is the most studied and controversial religious relic in human history.

The ancient linen cloth bears the image of a man, alleged to be that of Jesus of Nazareth. What if it were real? What if it contained a secret powerful enough to alter the course of human history? And what if it fell into the wrong hands?

Manny Lusum is convinced the Shroud is the genuine article and obsessed with proving it scientifically. Grace Barden is not only Manny’s best friend, but also secretly in love with the physics student and soon-to-be Catholic priest. Across the globe, three grisly murders and the theft of a secret manuscript thrust Grace and Manny into a generations-old conspiracy of biblical proportions. From New York to Rome to the inner sanctum of the Vatican, they struggle to untangle a bizarre mystery surrounding the controversial artifact.

In a dramatic confrontation between faith and the ultimate evil on the world stage, Grace and Manny are pushed to the edge of an abyss, balanced on the brink between heaven and hell.

This suspenseful and captivating thriller is perfect for fans of Dan Brown, John Grisham, Robert Ludlum, and David Baldacci. Order your copy today and experience a unique blend of history, science, conscience, religion and a battle of good versus evil that will keep you reading into the early morning hours!

“ . . . a wonderfully engaging, page-turning thriller.”

MY REVIEW

This was an incredibly thought-provoking, engaging read. Fast-paced with plenty of twists and turns. Be sure to start reading it when you have a good chunk of time available, because it’s hard to put down!

I felt like The Linen God was what DaVinci Code wanted to be. It’s well-researched, historically accurate to my knowledge, and makes me want to learn all I can about the Shroud of Turin!

The Linen God was also an interesting read for me as a Protestant. I learned so much about Catholicism while reading it, and appreciated the weaving of Scripture throughout! In addition, the characters’ sincere pursuit of a deeper relationship with Christ proved convicting to my own walk.

I received a free copy of the book from the publisher. I was not required to write a review, positive or negative. All opinions are my own.
