The man who changed the course of history left no earthly trace of his existence . . .

Who was Jesus of Nazareth and what do the relics left behind tell us about this fascinating figure? A burial box that has Jesus's name on it? A papyrus "gospel" referring to his wife? A piece of wood from the cross? A linen shroud that wrapped Jesus's corpse? Are any or all of these real? Or are we being scammed?

Finding Jesus provides a fresh look at the life of the greatest man who ever lived through six blockbuster artifacts -- including the Shroud of Turin, pieces of the True Cross, and bones of John the Baptist -- that give us the most direct evidence about the life and world of Jesus. Telling the story behind each artifact, Finding Jesus investigates, in the company of sleuths and scholars who use modern-day tools to solve ancient riddles, whether the stunning relics are authentic or frauds.

As both companion to the CNN TV series and as deeper inquiry into the story of what Jesus left behind, Finding Jesus draws on fascinating debates, controversial figures, and forensic evidence to reveal a story for the faithful, the skeptical, and the curious alike.
