Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins comes a heart-stopping adventure of historical proportions.

Nicole Berman is an archaeologist on the brink of a world-changing discovery. During her first dig in Jordan, she believes she has found concrete evidence of a biblical patriarch that could change history books forever. But someone doesn't want the truth revealed. While urgently trying to connect pieces of an ancient puzzle, a dangerous enemy is out to stop her.  

"From a criminal investigation in Manhattan to the birth of Abram in ancient Ur, Jerry Jenkins weaves together a tale of drama and suspense that will draw you into the lives of two families separated by 4,000 years of history yet sharing remarkably similar struggles of faith. Dead Sea Rising combines the thrill of a whodunit with the moral and political intrigue of the ancient, and modern, Middle East. But be prepared. Once you begin, you won't be able to stop until you reach the final page!" (Dr. Charlie Dyer, Professor-At-Large of Bible, and host of The Land and the Book radio program)

"If you love history - especially biblical history - this is a fun and fascinating read!" (Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center)

"Jerry Jenkins' dialogue is equal to the best of Nelson DeMille, his storylines equal to the best of John Grisham. And now Dead Sea Rising... this book may be Jerry's best." (Andy Andrews, New York Times best-selling author of The Traveler's Gift and The Noticer)

"Jumping back and forth in time at a breakneck pace, Dead Sea Rising is a thriller as only Jerry B. Jenkins can tell it. Biblical history combines with gripping contemporary mystery. Just be aware - you'll be hooked." (James Scott Bell, international thriller writers award winner)

Anticlimactic

The book was very interesting until I got to the end, and I couldn't believe I was hearing the "I hope you enjoyed this book..." I was shocked that was the end. I don't feel like everything was resolved. Disappointing...

Well done, as always

Jerry Jenkins does a brilliant job combining three stories into one book. looking forward to seeing if Book 2 is out. I'm assuming there will be a book to but I don't know that for sure.

Only good if this is Volume 1

As noted by other reviewers, this book just ends very abruptly, there is no appropriate wrap-up or even an obvious cliff-hanger hand off to a future book. Both threads just end without any connection and no indication of a later conclusion. My ratings are based on the unfounded assumption that this is the first of a series. If this is the whole story then I would not recommend it.

So, so...

Not sure what i was expecting but it was certainly a bit more than this. the story. Not sure if this is just the first of many books, and hope the others (if any) are a bit more engaging.

???

Is there a part two? There are a whole lot of unanswered questions in this book. I would love to read the rest of the story. What did the Old Testament have to do with story line???

Dead Sea Rising

A fascinating book. The author did an excellent job of moving between 3 different times and settings. It was easy to follow and intriguing. I’m looking forward to the rest in the series and plan to pre order the audible version as soon as it is available. The narration was outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters.

Slow moving

Seems like the book could have been done in 2 chapters, maybe 3. In the end there is no exciting part, just a slow moving beginning to the story. Like the last few books in the left behind series were really slow and seemed to drag out, that is the case here. Others have reviewed it quite highly, but I had a tough time just continuing to listen to it because very little happens from the start to the end.

I Can't Wait for Book 2 this is going to be great!

This New Book Series is going to be the best book series since Left Behind by Jerry B Jenkins. I'm so glad I brought this fantastic book. I didn't ever want the book to end. sadly all good things must come to a end.
