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...

Where in the world is Jerry

I have loved Jerry Jenkins novels, until this one. True is, I gave up on the book about 25% through. It was simply far to painful and while understand the two stories will come together, it is just too painstakingly laborious to put any more time and effort into a meandering story. I HATE putting on a negative comment, but I do wish I had been warned ahead of time so I feel it is my obligation given that it is so far from the superior efforts of Jerry’s previous novels.

Unsatisfying End - Wait to buy until 2021

Don't buy this until after the second book comes out at the end of 2020.
I'm usually a big fan of J.B. Jenkins books. This book started in his usual style, but just as the story begins to become interesting, it ends. No conclusion to anything. Apparently it is a prequel of sorts for a book that will not come out until Nov 2020. Unfortunately this book didn't leave me eagerly anticipating the next book, it left me annoyed at the abrupt ending with no satisfactory wrap up.

Just the beginning

My father lives in another state and we both wanted to listen to something together. He’s hooked, as am I. We found the book reeling us in with every chapter, inviting us with its mysteriousness, character and heart, and intriguing us with intricate stories woven between different times. We recommend this book, and only warn that you’ll be chomping at the bit for the next release. - E.J.R.

It’s a let down

Leaves the reader hanging. Not worth the time. The story could have been good too but it just flops at the end.

Great reader, very lackluster story.

the reader was phenomenal and did a great job with characterization. unfortunately the story line was very weak, took a long time to develop and, unfortunately, never came to fruition. it almost feels like the author got tired of writing a thready storyline and abruptly ended it without conclusion.

huge let down

have you ever watched a movie to its completion taking that it has to get better... but it never does. this book goes on and on and never connects all of the storylines. it may as well have been 2 1/2 separate books.

I’ll never get that time back.

I’m so very disappointed. I had too high an expectation I guess. I kept hoping it was going to get better.

Good but too long to get to point

I felt like each story line was engaging but way too long to get to anything revealed or super exciting.
