    Michael Scott starts off his writing with a prologue, but intere

    Michael Scott starts off his writing with a prologue, but interestingly it is told from the point of view of two characters. After a stabbing and a strange key, you jump right into the story. The main character, Dr. Jonathon Munro, is a cross between Indiana Jones and a reluctant spy. Munro is skeptical that the New Testament scrolls found are even real. Nevertheless, he is sent off to find these scrolls before others can lay claim to them. As if trying to find ancient artifacts was not hard enough, Jonathon is also working alongside his ex girlfriend. This fuels a lot of trust issues and confrontations throughout the story.

    There are a lot of character in this book but Scott does a great job keeping up with them. Their stories correlate to each other, and some in ways you would never expect. You are not handed all the details in one helping, which I love and respect in authors. There is just something about catching glimpses and having ah ha moments later on that just make me want to keep reading.

    Michael Scott relays his story brilliantly. Characters, places, and details are clearly written, leaving the reader free to hold on and enjoy the ride. Scott blends fact and fiction together, prompting the reader to want to know more. I know I looked up the Egerton papyrus (gospel) and it is real. I don’t want to giveaway anymore about the book, just go pick it up you won’t be disappointed!

    A note about the content itself. Some characters are very dangerous and their story lines could even be a little scary for certain readers. Colorful language is sprinkled throughout, which was something I wasn’t expecting but it was not so over the top that it made me uncomfortable. The Lost Scrolls is definitely not a complacent subdued Christian work of fiction.

    If you are a reader who loves happily ever after, resolved endings you won’t find it here. The end is more bittersweet and open but that makes you want to read more. I cannot wait to read the next book and find out what else Dr. Jonathon Munro gets himself into! The Lost Scrolls will entertain historical lovers, adrenaline junkies, and the average reader alike.

    Great read, action packed and exciting to the end. It is a Christian Adventure novel, yet it incorporates a very real and modern cast of characters which makes every situation believable. Highly recommended book!

    The Lost Scrolls was a good, fast read that I finished in one da

    The Lost Scrolls was a good, fast read that I finished in one day. We had just returned from an out-of-town trip and I needed to read a good book to wind down. While The Lost Scrolls wasn't exactly a relaxing book, it definitely held my interest. It is nearly free of bad language and there were no graphic romantic scenes, so that I didn't blush at all while reading. I'm not a fan of books that should be rated R. Thankfully The Lost Scrolls would be a book that I could pass along to my grandmother without worry and yet confidently able to share it with my husband knowing that he would like the action and adventure. Overall, The Lost Scrolls is a book that would be widely appreciated by all audiences.

    I received this book to review. The opinions are 100% mine.

    another roller coaster of a ride!

    The Lost Scrolls is a very quick read, so much so that I read it literally in 1 2 hour sitting! I could not believe that I got through it that quickly-it went like a speeding roller coaster from the first chapter! The plot is believable and with an ending that makes you wonder, as to whether to their will be a sequel!


    You have to love a book that hooks you from the beginning and makes you want more. The plot was interesting and made you want to go searching for the truth behind the book, for instance : the writs of books, Domo tou bibliou, which is sought for in the book, is not real, but it might have some foundation in truth yet! As the author's shows on his blog post, new biblical fragments have been discovered may be the earliest fragments of the New Testament!


    I will definitely be reading some of the authors other books as well, as he has such varied books, they all sound interesting in their own way! If you're looking for a fun historical-adventure theme ride, check out The Lost Scrolls!
