Dr. David Chambers, a well-known archaeologist, has just decided to leave Biblical archaeology. His faith has been challenged, and he is doubting God and His goodness. Just as he decides to move into South American archaeology, he receives a call from an old friend and mentor Abram Ben-Judah inviting David into one more Biblical dig... unearthing the secrets of the Copper Scroll.
A team of archaeologists, including David's ex-fiance, and security personnel are pulled together to work as one toward one common goal. Locate, find, and retrieve the artifacts as quickly as possible. Even though the team has a top-notch security team, a leak is found. Can the "mole" be neutralized before more people are hurt? Can they locate the items listed on the Copper Scroll before Israel's enemies declare war on them?
I could not put this book down! When I thought I had it figured out, I was thrown another curve. I loved how Grant Jeffrey and Alton Gansky developed their characters; I was able to relate to them and their reactions. Also, Biblical history was seemlessly woven into the story line---easily explaining the relevance of the finds or locations. I only had one problem with the book.... it ended! This is a story I could have continued reading. I wonder if we will be seeing more of Dr. David Chambers and his motley crew?!?!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I received a complimentary copy of The Scroll by Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky as part of the Blogging for Books program through Waterbrook Multnomah Publisher for my honest review.
