Archaeology meets adventure !!,
This review is from: The Sign And The Seal: Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant (Paperback)
This book is a wonderful, gripping descent into ancient history and biblical myth. Part adventure, part archaeological detective work, the reader can't fail to get sucked in as the author's obsession with his subject carries you along.
The search for the fabled Ark Of The Covenant, in which it is said that Moses placed the Ten Commandments etched upon tablets of stone, takes in a journey through distant lands and the sands of time. The style of writing conveys each step of the journey in vivid and eminently readable detail as you wait for the next clue to emerge from some ancient script or stone carving.
For anyone who has even the slightest interest in biblical stories, the mysteries of the ancient world, or of some of the great figures in history, this book will keep you enthralled.
Meticulously researched, written with verve, gusto, and no little skill, and with a tantalising quest at its core, this is one of the best, and earliest, books in the now saturated alternative archaeology genre. READ IT !!
