Archeology, treasure hunting, and espionage will make you want to turn every one of the 300+ pages in this novel.

The Scroll by Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky

I really, really like this book.  All I really want to say in this review is get the book and read it!  I just finished this book and am ready to start it all over again!  It started off just a little bit slow, but mostly to get in all the background information.  It doesn’t take too long into the book to realize where they are going with the top secret archeological digs and the items that are found.  I was also pretty sure who the traitor was, but that didn’t diminish the story for me in any way.

The story revolves around Dr. David Chambers, who, going through a spiritual crisis, has turned his back on his faith, Biblical archeology, his ex-fianc√©, and his father.  An old friend and colleague asks David to come back to the Holy Land once again to help find highly valued treasures.  He does so with reservation, and the hardships involved are physical, spiritual, and emotional.  Which will be more important to David; finding the treasure or finding his faith?
The book was provided free of charge by Waterbrook Press’ Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.
