Publisher's Summary

It was not his dream; it was his destiny, and the journey it required would surely mean death. Who was he - a simple rabbi born the lowly son of a Bedouin shepherd - to go up against the Roman Army? Would he turn his back on his calling or follow his path to its deadly end? Only he could save the sacred texts lying within the walls of Jerusalem's great Temple. Caesar would see the city destroyed and the Temple reduced to rubble in his bid to conquer the Jews - and the rising Christ followers among them. Blood would be shed to save the scrolls...but how?

    4.5/5 Mystery of the Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed

    Summary: It’s not really a mystery or a history, but it is decent historical fiction. This is the story of a Bedouin boy who grows up to be a scribe then a priest and guardian of Israel’s greatest treasures.

    Additional Comments:
    - The author narrated the story. The music in the beginning kind of threw me for a little, but I enjoyed the added touch.
    - I love the camel. She gets the best side character award.
    - The hero and his uncle are fleshed out quite well but most of the other characters weren’t. I’m not sure why Lazarus was in the story.
    - I really enjoyed the set up with the boy, Hilal (sorry if I misspelled that, I heard the audio), but then it pulled one of those “thirty years later” things that make me cringe a little. I guess that’s a pacing issue. Same thing near the end, you get wrapped up in the thrill of the hunt then boom it’s late 1940’s. I understand why it’s done that way, but the transition was … abrupt.
    - Content warning: There are descriptions of Roman atrocities and torture.
    - The book was a refreshing change from the book fare I’ve been taking in lately.

    Conclusion: Interesting take on the battle to preserve history.
