This was a high paced, action packed book. I enjoyed it for the entertainment value, but the story is pretty far out there. It is interesting to think about if some of these ancient Biblical artifacts do still exist somewhere. Would that change how people feel about the Bible and their faith? If you are looking for a page turning story, this one is for you.
