One man holds the key to locating the Ark of the Covenant — but he’s hidden deep in the desert and no one has seen him since he was a boy. In this explosive sequel to Blessed Child, Jewish soldier-turned-archaeologist Rebecca Soloman leads a team deep into the Ethiopian desert to find the one man who may know the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Such a discovery would bring hope back to her people.
Her search brings excitement and danger — including unexpected love and a discovery far more powerful than even the holy artifact. Meanwhile, Islamic fundamentalists dispatch Ismael, their most accomplished assassin, to pursue Rebecca and the man she’s searching for. These men fear that the Ark’s discovery will compel Israel to rebuild Solomon’s temple — on the very site of their holy mosque in Jerusalem. But the man they seek is no ordinary man. His name is Caleb, and he too is on a mission — to find again the love he embraced as a child and to share that love with the world.
- Well played ending
I was wondering how they were going to resolve the ark issue at the end. But Dekker and Bright gave it an unexpectedness that brought a smile to my face. I was challenged again to examine my own faith as I progressed through the book. The stepping off a cliff analogy is perfect and the authors wove that theme into the story with excellence. I have been a big fan of Dekker since I first began reading his books. this book is the second in the series and I loved the story.
