    An Archeological Dig To Save The World And Himself

    Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky in their new book, "The Scroll" published by Waterbrook Press takes us to Israel on an archeological dig.

    What happens when three archeologists are thrust together on a dig and have to work together to finish the project? What happens when two of those members were in love with one another and the third was an enemy? What happens when someone else doesn't want you to finish the project? Then you have the thrilling elements of "The Scroll"

    Get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller. Dr. David Chambers is a disillusioned man who is being offered one more chance to make a difference. He has lost his focus, and feels that God has left him. But all that is going to change on an archeological site in Israel. Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky know how to craft suspense. So much is going on within the pages of "The Scroll" and the characters are so real that you care for all of them, well at least the good guys. There is more to the story that I didn't mention but you didn't really expect me to tell you everything did you? Otherwise you might not want to read the book and I wouldn't want you to pass up an opportunity for a terrific read.

    It is a very good book.

    "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? 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."

    Biblical archaeologist, Dr. David Chambers, loses his faith in God after a painful experience. And despite the evidence surrounding him has decided to leave that field of study for another not so Biblically influenced. But before he can, an old mentor calls and offers him a dig of the lifetime. Despite misgivings he agrees. This dig will unearth treasures long searched for and could change the course of the world. It also brings him face to face with his former fiancee. As they struggle with their feelings for each other, they are also faced with threats from opposing peoples.

    I found this book interesting. I couldn't stop reading it because I just had to know what would happen next. Would they find the treasure? Who is leaking secrets? Is it truly possible to find treasures spoken of in the Bible?

    I found myself relating to the characters very easily. Especially with David's struggles with his faith. Amber is a good example of someone who relies on God entirely regardless of what happens in life. Dr. Ben-Judah is a charismatic man and you can't help but love him.

    There is a lot of action and suspense in this story. It is a good example of christian fiction. It just shows you don't need cussing and smut to make a story good.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

    This is an exciting archeological thriller

    After finding Herod the Great's tunnel renowned biblical archaeologist David Chambers quits that discipline. Following the death of his mother and his father's failure to leave a dig to be at her side, David lost his faith and his passion for Israeli digs. When he gave up on the Lord, he also lost his devout archeologist fiancée Dr. Amber Rogers.

    In 2013 David considers studying the Olmecs in Mexico when his mentor Dr. Abram Ben-Judah asks him to join a special dig in Israel sponsored by wealthy John Trent. Using modern technology, the team will look for the treasures hidden from the Romans listed in the Copper Scroll. He is unhappy with his teammates Nuri Aumann and especially Amber. As they work in secret and under heavy security, David has doubts especially when some of the crew die in an explosion and those doubts are further enhanced when he learns the hidden agenda of his mentor.

    This is an exciting archeological thriller enhanced by security and political concerns. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action in a sort of modern day Indiana Jones way. Although David's behavior at times seems that of a spoiled child which detracts from the dangerous digs, readers will appreciate The Scroll as Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky provide an engaging tale.
