One last dig. One final descent into the twisted tunnels of ancient Jerusalem. Will the truth be found among the treasures that lie beneath the holy city?
Dr. David Chambers, leading archaeologist, has spent his professional career uncovering the facts in the artifacts. His work sets the standard for biblical research in the Holy Land. But surrounded by the evidence, David has sunk into an abyss of doubt. A painful experience with a seemingly unresponsive God has left him without hope. The Old Testament scriptures that used to fill his mind with wonder now drive him to frustration. His unanswered questions have ripped him from both his academic pursuits and the love of his live, his fiancee, Amber.
An old friend and mentor reaches out to David, enticing him with the riches described in the enigmatic Copper Scroll. Losing ground with his peers, his love, and his faith, David Chambers has a choice to make. Will he undertake one final dig to unlock a secret that could alter the course of history? Do the mysteries of the Old Testament hold the key to the political turmoil of the Middle East?
In a world where faith has been eclipsed by the allure of doubt, The Scroll offers a different journey: a gripping adventure to find truth worth dying for.
slow start, quick ending, good beginning| Posted October 03, 2011
At first the book was hard to get in to...and it seemed to wrap up really quick, but the middle of the book was very entertaining. It's the story of a man who walked away from his faith, and is called back by God (HaShem = The Name) to find it. It's the story of an old Jewish Professor, who holds onto God for all he's worth. And it's the story of a young girl who found love and lost it, and then found it again. These 3, along with a snotty colleague go in search for a dangerous, life changing treasure. The story is based off of things to come and is realisticly portrayed. I received this book for the purpose of this review from waterbrook publishing company.
