The Scroll, by Grant R. Jeffry and Alton L. Gansky was an intriguing book. The primary character is a biblical archaeologist that many years ago and experience that has a direct negative reaction to his faith. Because of this experience, he has made the decision to abandon his faith. A cherished friend and mentor historian is able to contact him again. With a great deal of persuasion is old mentor is able to talk him in to one more dig, the dig of a lifetime. The dig is his specialty, digging in tunnels underneath ancient Jerusalem. As the story progresses Chambers runs into mental and spiritual dilemmas that bring to the surface his failures in his faith, academic discipline and his previous personal relationships. He is driven, right or wrong, with the possibility of finding treasures far more precious than gold or money, to be able to prove the truth of the scriptures in the bible. Though there was part of the book that seemed to drag on, as a whole the book was entertaining. If you are a biblical scholar, you may see the flaw in some of the interpretation but it is a fictional story so let us not get too carried away.

I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review of the book.
