As featured in the 6-part CNN SERIES "Finding Jesus"

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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fascinating, provocative and informative entry into the life of Jesus. Finding Jesus uses controversies over recent archaeological and literary finds, as well over some long-argued-over tales and relics, to provide readers with solid scholarship and thoughtful insights into the life of the man whose life, death and resurrection continues to enthrall and inspire. James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus a Pilgrimage

  • Holy doubt is an essential element of faith, yet we are tantalized by stories that give historical insights in support of the foundations of our faith. Finding Jesus explores six artifacts that are windows into early Christianity and our desire to know what happened. These windows let us see that faith is deeper than history, but knowing these complex stories can sustain us as we grapple with today's questions. Finding Jesus' stories reveal our very human and complex hunger to understand mystery and our past. Sister Simone Campbell, author of A Nun on the Bus
  • For more than two millennia, few people have captured the imaginations of human beings like Jesus Christ. Whether you are spiritual or skeptical, Finding Jesus will help you experience the life of One who changed the world. Part anthology and part theology, this book is about what Jesus meant to those who knew him and what he means to those who claim to know him today. Let Finding Jesus lead you on a journey of faith and facts--you won't be sorry! Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus Is Better than You Imagined
  • Finding Jesus is for the curious: folks who are thrilled by spiritual quests and desire to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the history of our faith. You won't regret following Gibson's and McKinley's path through twists and turns of the Gospels and at the end of that path is the One who makes this greatest of stories make perfect sense. Joshua DuBois, author of The President's Devotional
  • In a mix of engaging scholarship and gripping storytelling, Gibson and McKinley offer a page-turner for a wide audience. Kirkus
  • One of the great advances in modern medicine is the discovery of the enormous contribution of spirituality to human health, longevity, and wellbeing. Research in this area was originally confined to adults, but now Dr. Lisa Miller shows the central importance of spirituality from birth through the formative years. Miller shows that spirituality is not a superficial add-on, but that our connection with the transcendent, however named, is an innate aspect of our human endowment, part of our original equipment. This is a major contribution toward what it means to be human. We ignore these findings at great risk, for our future on this planet likely depends on how we respond to them. In other words, the 21st century will be spiritual, or it may not be at all. Larry Dossey, MD, author of ONE MIND

  • “In a mix of engaging scholarship and gripping storytelling, Gibson and McKinley offer a page-turner for a wide audience.”
