Praise

“It’s a thriller, a whodunit, and an adventure, full of clues, codes, false trails, professional envy, whiffs of conspiracy, and heroic mercy. And it’s all true! Thomas Craughwell has delivered an historical account that’s breathtaking, page-turning, and inspiring.” -Mike Aquilina, Executive Vice-President, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, and author, The Fathers of the Church

“Religious legends sometimes have a funny way of turning out to be true.  For many years, scholars believed that the ‘five porticoes’ in a healing story of Jesus in Jerusalem were just a pious legend–until archeologists unearthed a site with ‘five porticoes,’ just as the Gospels had said. The remarkable story of the supposedly ‘legendary’ remains of St. Peter’s, and how they were found exactly where the ‘legends’ had them, is a fascinating one, especially in the hands of a gifted writer like Thomas Craughwell. His new book should give pause to all those who would dismiss similar stories as ‘merely legendary.'” -James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints.

“Craughwell is one of our very best storytellers. In book after book, he makes history come alive. As I expected, St. Peter’s Bones does not disappoint. It’s amazing how Tom is able to tell a sweeping, important story in so compact a package. Highly recommended!” -Jon M. Sweeney, author of The Pope Who Quit and Francis of Assisi in His Own Words
