Book Review of 'The Second Virgin Birth' by Tommy Taylor

The Second Virgin Birth was written by Tommy Taylor and published by Booksurge, LLC in 2007. You may purchase the book at

There have been major discoveries by the Catholic Church recently, with the help of world renowned scientists. They have discovered a hair on the Shroud of Turin, and the Crown of Thorns. Dr. James Burk has been given the task of analyzing any and all DNA found on both relics to determine the identity of the donor. What he finds is amazing to him. The majority of the DNA belongs to a 2,000 year old male. Could this be the DNA of Jesus? Burk really doesn’t care much who the DNA belonged to, as long as he gets his payday. However, Burk quickly realizes that it is actually important who the DNA belonged to, because if it were the DNA of Jesus Christ, he could make exponentially more money. He happens to be a specialist in the field of cloning.

Burk teams up with other scientists and entrepreneurs after stealing the DNA samples, in order to attempt to clone Jesus Christ, himself. The Catholic Church was willing to pay anything and do anything in order to stop the cloning, because it would mean the end of the Christian religion itself. This would mean a loss of billions of dollars per year for the Church. They couldn’t allow this cloning to happen.

This is a story of science vs. religion. What is the church willing to do to stop the advance of science? Will the cloning even succeed? The Second Virgin Birth is chock full of action and wonder, and it will make you question what you actually believe about cloning and organized religion. This story will have you on the edge of your seat, unable to put it down. You want to know what is going to happen next. The story is full of murder, intrigue and even miracles. I loved this book and will recommend it for anyone who enjoys an action packed story. Whether you are a believer of the Christian religion or not, you will want to read The Second Virgin Birth.

This is a great idea for a story, and has been explored in a couple of other thrillers too. The best one I've read is THE GENESIS CODE by John Case. {My review:}
