The Rediscovery of the True Face of JesusBook - 2010
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Experts determined that the cloth of Manoppello is not Veronica's veil, but rather the face cloth layed over the face of Jesus in the tomb. Unlike the Shroud of Turin, which is a "negative" of the image, the image on the face cloth is a "positive" of the face of Christ.
Paul Badde takes the reader along on a thrilling journey of discovery as he travels to research this remarkable relic, tracing the turbulent history of the Holy Face from ancient times up to the historic 2006 visit to Manoppello by Pope Benedict XVI. Illustrated with 16 pages of color photos.

"Paul Badde had written a gripping cultural thriller."
- Der Spiegel
"Paul Badde has applied his keen journalistic eye and energetic writing style to one of the most fascinating phenomena of our times, the rediscovery of a marvel and a grace for an unbelieving age. The story of the Face of Christ in the mysterious image of Manoppello is an enthralling work, the fruit of painstaking research and scholarship. It reads like a detective story, an archaeologist's journal, and an adventure tale that is - most thrilling of all - no mere fiction. The Face of Manoppello may well prove to be of equal importance with the Shroud of Turin."
- Michael O'Brien, Author, Father Elijah
