Jonathan Weber, Harvard professor and biblical scholar, is looking forward to a sabbatical year on an archaeological dig in Israel. But a spectacular discovery a skeleton 2,000 years old! will either shed light on the life of Jesus Christ or be the death rattle of the Christian faith.
Meanwhile, Weber's interest in Shannon Jennings, daughter of the dig's director, proves to be an exciting complication.
Delving into the worlds of science, archaeology, politics, and religion, this fast-paced thriller explores the tension between doubt and faith and one man's determination to find the truth no matter what the cost.
