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.

Loved it BUT

Love the story and the history BUT the end left me wanting more. I feel like it left the story unresolved.

Ummm, where's the rest of the book?

The story isn't bad, not incredible, but good enough to keep reading/listening. BUT, the book just ends. No tying together the story lines, things are all just implied. It's as if a chapter ended and the last third of the book was left off; disappointing.

Poor story, okay righting, very good narration

********* Slight spoilers, but not really ***********

Story of three different timelines. A) Abraham's parents and the totally fictitious story surrounding his birth. B) Current day young female archeologist, her wealthy parents, and a police investigation into an attack on her mother. C) Father's first love back during the Vietnam War.

My biggest problem with this story is the complete lack of research done on the realism of the major plot points. This is totally a figment of the author's imagination. This really sours the story for me.
