Publisher's Summary

Finding Jesus explores six major artifacts, including the Shroud of Turin, the True Cross, and John the Baptist, that give us the most direct evidence about the life and world of Jesus. The book and attendant CNN series provide a dramatic way to retell "the greatest story ever told" while introducing a broad audience to the history, the latest controversies, and newest forensic science involved in sorting out facts from the fiction of would-be forgers and deceivers. The book and the show draw on experts from all over the world. Beyond the faithful, the book will also appeal to the skeptical and to curious readers of history and archaeology, while it takes viewers of the primetime TV series deeper into the story.

Little or Nothing to do with Finding Jesus

Would you try another book from David Gibson and Michael McKinley and/or Peter Larkin?

I don't know. Some of this book was interesting, but mostly missed the mark for me. Not sure what I expected - I might listen again to see if there were things I didn't understand in the first run through. I felt like the objects they examined were sort of irrelevant to knowing anything about Jesus and the overall book left me a little disappointed.

What do you think your next listen will be?

HISSING COUSINS, by Marc Peyser and Timothy Dwyer

What does Peter Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was clear and easy to listen to. Very good job.

Was Finding Jesus worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

It was interesting but I was surprised that the focus was on objects and manuscripts that either had nothing directly to do with Jesus, or if they did, gave little insight into who He is. I kind of expected some actual historical accounts, but it was all about artifacts, theories and legends. The expected insights were missing.
