Description
For centuries, scholars have speculated about a lost book of the Bible. No one has ever found it—until now.

A few pieces of centuries-old parchment tucked inside a tattered book lead famed archaeologist Jonathan Weber and his wife Shannon to what could possibly be the greatest find in church history—a discarded biblical manuscript whose ancient pages reveal a secret that will change the way the world views Scripture.

Is it one of fifty copies commissioned by Constantine the Great and lost for centuries? Or the most sophisticated forgery of all time?

When the manuscript is stolen, Jon is swept into a deadly race to find it and prove its authenticity before it’s lost forever. Everything hangs in the balance—his career, his reputation, even his life—but he’s willing to risk it all in one final daring attempt to determine the truth.

“Just a few pages into it I was hooked. Maier is that rare combination of masterful storyteller and historian. A brilliant use of the power of story to excite and educate. Bravo!”
-Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast

Boring
Boring should never characterize a work of fiction. Neither should awkward romance! Sigh. Furthermore the author paints those who do not agree with his assessment that the final verses of Mark should be changed as ignorant or "Appalachian snake handlers." I found his condescending tone offensive and his view narrow minded. Furthermore, the plot was unlikely. Who walks into old churches and "accidentally" discovers centuries-old manuscripts that scholars have been seeking for years? And then the church fathers just lets them walk away with them? Ludicrous.

The merit of the book is that the author is a scholar and the reader/listener can learn some about ancient manuscripts.
