The Secret Scroll
2 journalers for this copy...
Josh Cohan, a work-obsessed archaeology professor, has a recurring dream about a great secret. He follows his instincts to the Judean desert, where he makes a fantastic discovery an ancient scroll which seems to have been written by Jesus Christ. The Israeli Antiquities Authority has a claim on the scroll, but another, more sinister organization wants the scroll as well. The Guardians, members of an ancient extremist religious sect, are willing to kill to get what they want.
Josh joins the government-sponsored team of translators who believe the scroll might be genuine, and falls in love with Danielle, the fiery daughter of one of the translators. When a friend turns up dead and Danielle goes missing, Josh realizes that the scroll might be more powerful and controversial than he had ever imagined. Will Josh be able to prevent something terrible from happening to the woman he loves without giving up the most important discovery mankind has ever made?
The Guardians, a violent Christian hate group thousands of years old, are anxious to obtain the scroll at any cost. The Guardians wish to dominate the world with their brand of evil. Who on the IAA is feeding the Guardians with information?
Josh joins with the IAA and their brilliant team of theologians and archaeologists to uncover the secrets of the scroll. While doing so, he falls in love with the beautiful daughter of one of the team members. This places her squarely in the face of all the danger. Will he be able to 'keep the girl' and the scroll?
Not only is there the mystery and intrigue, there is also a spiritual level to this book. One is led to think about Jesus as an individual and wonder about 'What If'. What if Jesus never ascended? What if the historical place is really not that spot? This book is one of the most well researched books I have ever read
