Renowned forensic pathologist and medical examiner, Dr Frederick Zugibe, discusses his forty-five years of research in to mechanisms and causes of Christ's death in crucifixion. The book provides a detailed analysis on Christ's death - from the crown of thorns to the burial tomb. Dr Zugibe explores not only the Christ's physical torment on the cross, but also looks at the emotional pain he experienced during the hours leading up to the actual crucifixion.

As the world's leading authority on the crucifixion, Dr Zugibe incorporates the latest scientific discoveries about the Shroud of Turin, including recently released findings that disprove the previous attempts at radiocarbon dating. Detailing his own personal examination of the Shroud, he sheds new light on its authenticity and provides the most complete scientific account of Christ's death available today.In language that is both precise and easy to understand, Dr Zugibe presents his discoveries culled from years of exhaustive research. Using a scientifically accurate cross, he illustrates his unparalleled experiments that have helped him to understand the blood gas determinations, muscular effects, and other physical consequences of crucifixion. Documented with 95 illustrations that explore the impact of crucifixion on the body, Dr Zugibe demonstrates the realities behind the crucifixion providing a virtual autopsy on Christ from across the centuries.
