Barrie Schwortz has recently updated his famous Shroud.com site with all the latest Shroud news including an announcement about SignFromGod.

The Shroud fulfills the New Testament definition of a sign's purpose, which is to inform, warn and convey pertinent information before proceeding, or an indication that action will soon follow..."
