The Boat and the Sea of Galilee is an easy read about the luck of two brothers who make a discovery of a fishing boat over two thousand years old that was in common use in the area at the time of Jesus of Nazareth and the work involved to preserve it. This and the fact that it is the first wooden boat found in fresh water that has not disintegrated with the extraordinary amount of time spent claimed by the sea. This is not a book written for the scientist but more of a story of the emotional experience shared by those who worked on the fourteen year project to preserve this rare find and the love and anxiety that accompanied the endeavor. Almost a coffee table book it is written for the laymen but lacks the detail pictures that one would think would be included of the finished work for the many who will never have the opportunity to visit the very small museum. It is amazing at the speed of required permissions, expertise, labor and materials was assembled to allow for such a quick excavation of this important find. The book is a good introduction to the "Jesus Boat."
