Baker & Taylor
A scientific investigation into Jesus's execution offers systematic, crime-scene coverage based on archaeological, forensic, and historical sources, in an account that also identifies how art and films have misrepresented factual events. By the author of The Blood and the Shroud. 20,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
Crime Scene Golgotha approaches Jesus's crucifiction from the perspecitive of a crime scene investigator: What do we know is fact? What can be historically documented? What can we deduce may have happened?

Taking the popular CSI television dramas as inspiration, Crime Scene Golgotha is a direct reaction to Mel Gibson's much talked about movie The Passion of the Christ. Ian Wilson systematically outlines what is known for sure about Jesus's trial and crucifixion, as well as where art and the movies have gone astray. His investigatory methods include eyewitness testimony (that of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), archeology, medical and forensic findings, and history, which systematically describe the most famous murder in history.
