Pool of Siloam (the Cleansing) Book Description
In 2004 the actual authenticated Pool of Siloam was accidently discovered under the ever-evolving city of Jerusalem. The Pool of Siloam is the pool where Jesus sent the Bind Man to wash the mud off that Jesus created from spit and dirt and smeared over his unseeing eyes. His sight was miraculously restored.
After this pool was acquired by Israel, they made it into a first-class tourist attraction. This relatively-recent discovery quickly became one of the most visited tourist sites in the world. But startling changes, sometimes wonderful-sometimes horrible, began to occur to people that came in contact or drank this water. The resulting affects appear to have some correlation to their personal spiritual beliefs.
Maria Winston is the lead scientific investigator in charge of the project which is assigned by The Department of Defense to her employer, Institute of Scientific Studies (ISS). Maria, along with her counterparts at Center for Disease Control (CDC), specialized military personnel, and a religious expert, must report their findings to an emergency meeting of Homeland Security who are concerned with this emerging threat.
What they have to report is startling, shocking, and hard to believe, but it is backed up by scientific proof (and possibly by specific Biblical scripture). They report details of their fascinating findings including molecular differences in the proliferating “Holy Water” and other documented events considered to be from the Spiritual Realm.
Is this a Weapon of Mass Destruction; a new virus that can be toxic or benevolent; or is it God’s response to 9/11 and associated events? Is it Science or Supernatural as recorded in the Bible?
What happens during and after the Homeland Security meeting will keep you guessing, learning, and thinking as you accompany Maria on this world-changing quest. Part of the interest and fun of the book is determining what is fact and what is fiction.
While caught up in the story, you may formulate your personal answer to the question “Will You drink?”
