Über diesen Titel
In this audacious, thought-provoking novel, reporter Paul Davoren, covering the Israeli-Arab conflict in 1948, lands squarely in the middle of an even bigger story. Bedouins have uncovered ancient scrolls in a cave near the Dead Sea; deciphering the script, greedy art collector John May and Sara Garner, a Brooklyn-born archeologist whom Paul loves, find in a desert crypt the crudely preserved body of a crucified man, embalmed with smelling salts and identified in the scrolls as the "Teacher of Righteousness." The evidence suggests that these are the mortal remains of Jesus the Nazarene, and that a headless skeleton also exhumed is that of John the Baptist. Their incredible find, transported secretly to a Chicago institute for further study, challenges the foundations of Christianity and implies that Jesus (if the body is indeed his) had close ties to the Essenes, a mystical pre-Christian sect. The Vatican tries to suppress news of the dig, leading to a suspenseful finale. Hernon ( A Terrible Thunder ) has crafted a gripping, impressively researched tale, however farfetched its premise at first appears.
