The author, Ellen Gunderson Traylor, takes you on an awesome adventure of mystery, discovery, and travel. I really enjoyed this book! This is not a light weight book but very detailed and well researched; the type of book you can sink your teeth into. It's like reading 'Indiana Jones and the Ark of the Covenant', this book is not about the Ark of the Covenant but the Dead Sea Scrolls. The author took me on a ride with parallel stories that had me questioning how she was going to pull the different stories together. Ellen Gunderson Traylor is truly a gifted writer. I was in a state of awe as the author weaved the parallel stories together. At the end of the book, I sighed and just praised God because she shows God's forgiveness, awesomeness, power, and destiny. If you've lost sight of your destiny I think this book will bring you back into focus, it did for me.

A well written book. Makes you stop and think about the current day of terrorism and the possible reasons for it. The temple will be rebuilt one day in Jerusalem because the Bible says it will. This book gives one picture of how that might happen as well as the interconnectedness of lives and how much our beliefs drive us and matter in the whole scheme of life.
