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

"One last dig.  One final descent into the twisted tunnels of ancient Jerusalem.  Will the truth be fund among the treasures that lie beneath the holy city?  In a world where faith has been eclipsed by the allure of doubt, The Scroll offers a different journey: a gripping adventure to find truth worth dying for."

Biblical archaeologist, Dr. David Chambers, loses his faith in God after a painful experience. And despite the evidence surrounding him has decided to leave that field of study for another not so Biblically influenced.  But before he can, an old mentor calls and offers him a dig of the lifetime. Despite misgivings he agrees. This dig will unearth treasures long searched for and could change the course of the world. It also brings him face to face with his former fiancee. As they struggle with their feelings for each other, they are also faced with threats from opposing peoples. 

I found this book interesting. I couldn't stop reading it because I just had to know what would happen next. Would they find the treasure? Who is leaking secrets? Is it truly possible to find treasures spoken of in the Bible? 

I found myself relating to the characters very easily. Especially with David's struggles with his faith.  Amber is a good example of someone who relies on God entirely regardless of what happens in life.  Dr. Ben-Judah is a charismatic man and you can't help but love him. 

There is a lot of action and suspense in this story. It is a good example of christian fiction. It just shows you don't need cussing and smut to make a story good. 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
