Publisher Comments:

One last dig.  One final descent into the twisted tunnels of ancient Jerusalem.  Will the truth be fund 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 fi ll 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 life, his fi ancée, 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 fi nd truth worth dying for.

 

Review:

"In summer 2012, famed biblical archaeologist David Chambers decides to call it quits after his last dig in Israel — and the discovery of Herod's network of tunnels beneath Jerusalem. He has lost faith in the religious stories to which his archaeological finds have provided a foundation of truth. Almost one year later, however, he receives a call from an old friend and mentor in Israel, summoning him to join a small group of archaeologists in the search for the riches promised in the Copper Scroll — one of the Dead Sea Scrolls that contains the location of treasure that Jews hid from the Romans. When Chambers arrives, he quickly discovers that his ex-fiancé, Amber, will be a part of the team. Still wondering if he's made the right decision to return to biblical archaeology, Chambers struggles not only with his doubts about his faith but also with the love he still feels for Amber. Marred by stale dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and predictable plot twists, Jeffrey and Gansky nevertheless manage to tell an Indiana Jones — like tale of political conspiracies and intrigues of good versus evil. The novel's surprise ending begs for a sequel. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
