The Scroll was an enjoyable book with a fast paced energy. The authors take you on a journey through the heart of Christianity, beneath the great city of Jerusalem. As the story begins, Archeologist David Chambers, captures your imagination as he shines his flashlight on his biggest discovery yet, or so he thinks. Chambers past studies focused on biblical research for the Holy Land, but after some recent losses, including the death of his mother, his faith is rocked and he suddenly has doubts about who he is and what he really wants.

While struggling with his past, Chambers is recruited by an old friend to take part in an archeological dig which is shrouded in secrecy. A copper scroll is believed to hold the key to the greatest treasures of all times, that can change the course of history. Unbeknownst to him, others are recruited as well, including a nemesis from his past and his ex-fiancee. As the story unfolds for what this secret dig is really about, Chambers fights against everything around him, casting about like a reckless teenager. And just about the time he thinks he's on solid footing, people begin dying around him. Caught up in the cloak and dagger world of secrets and espionage, Chambers fights for his very life and the safety of the objects yet to be found. As governments converge, and civil war threatens to explode, can Chambers find the greatest discovery of all time?

This book captured my imagination while teaching me about the past. Although a fictional book, I loved the way the authors wove actual scripture and history into the book. At times, it almost felt real. I would have loved to have seen sketches and maps for some of the details of the book, but enjoyed it nonetheless. I definitely will share this book with others.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The opinions expressed here are my own. ( )
