Review The Eighth Scroll

Packed with intrigue and adventure When a Roman Catholic scholar involved in the Dead Sea Scrolls Project hides one of the scrolls because of the heretical message it contains no one is the wiser until decades later when a prominent archeologist discovers reference to the scrol. This book has something in it for everyone It has the adventure of Indiana Jones and the intrigue and mystery of The Di Vinci Code But there is far to The Eighth Scroll than you will ever find in either of those moviesbooks I liked how historical facts regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls were incorporated into a story rich in adventure religion romance and humor Lawrence B Brown brought all of the elements together to form an intelligent and enjoyable work of fiction Yes the book will entertain you but you will learn a few things as well I came away with a better understanding about the Dead Sea Scrolls and its impact on religion Readers will also love the way the story flows and the author’s overall style of writing

Stirring the flames of age old controversies The Eighth Scroll by Laurence B Brown draws on the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism Christianity and Islam to create an unbelievably dynamic and powerful story Set in a world that teeters between orthodoxy and heresy this thriller is. This is a DaVinci code style religious thriller that ties the Abrahamic faiths together and ultimately casts Islam in a positive light I highly recommend this book and personally hope it will be promoted and receive some attention It does start out a little gory but then improves I hope you will not only read it but talk about it and encourage others to read it too

    The Eighth Scroll is an intelligent story that flows smoothly and reads uick without losing the value of its concept with weighty terms or overly academic hodgepodge It mixes romance with adventure and explores the mysteries of religious history It's not deeply reflective but takes the reader on an alternative view and journey that leaves you wondering It's a wonderful twist on the subject of the Dead Sea scrolls Although this book has been grouped with the 'Da Vinci Code' I believe it deserves much better company First of all the Eighth Scroll is superbly written and runs a course that is easy to swallow than Dan Brown's 24 hour whirl wind of solving a historical mystery If you didn't like the Da Vinci Code you will love this book because it improves all the elements that the reader probably wished the other book contained Now if you liked the Da Vinci Code you will love this book and realize this is how it should be done It's a win win so pick it up and read itThe beginning of the book is a touch too reminiscent of Indiana Jones but since I'm a fan of those films I went with it and even enjoyed the comparison However I wish the author would have used a different name for the professor Tomes was just too close to Jones and it felt kind of commercial and cheapened the richness of the plot However this was short lived and after a few pages I was swept away and thoroughly involved in the story

    What if the missing and final text of the Dead Sea Scrolls was found today? It's believed that this final message would confirm or denounce religious beliefs and practices for the entire world so it stands to reason that some organizations and powers would put up a battle surpassing all others Laurence B Brown's novel The Eighth Scroll creates that scenario and the result is a provocative and thrilling fictional account of the chaos that might ensue if the final scroll in the Dead Sea puzzle was foundBrown's story is based on the premise that a Roman Catholic scholar who's working on the Dead Sea Scroll Project hides one of the scrolls because of its heretical message Time goes by and years later a prominent archeologist on an archeological dig finds a mysterious reference to the hidden scroll Thus begins the search and before it's over some will die and some will disappearWorld famous theologian and Brown's main character Michael Hansen knows that if The Eighth Scroll is revealed the devastating information inside could cause a religious upheaval such as the world has never known Now that he possesses important clues to the scroll's location he's out to find it Traveling from the United States to England and then to the Middle East Hansen begins a fight for his lifeMichael has already lost his archaeologist father and the only woman he'd ever loved because of the scroll and now he's fleeing the Mossad the CIA and the Italian Mafia the secret weapon of the Vatican When he does find The Eighth Scroll Michael knows it will be as devastating as predicted if exposed but Michael must expose it and do so before his enemies find and eradicate him Brown creates a believable scenario of what could happen today if such a discovery was revealed In the manner of The Da Vinci Code Michael Hansen unlocks one puzzle after another and finds himself in the middle of a war that has already left several dead and others mysteriously silentIf The Eighth Scroll of the Dead Sea Scrolls was actually discovered its existence might very well shake religion as we know it to the bones especially if it turned out to be the true gospel of Jesus or James an actual historical document that would validate Jesus as a prophet Judaism's very existence might be looked upon as invalid while orthodox Christianity might receive a jolt from which they'd never recoverThe Eighth Scroll will take you far back to ancient times and the history of Nero burning Rome You'll also learn about the struggles of certain religions to keep certain information silent and the lengths they went to ensure their agendas are safe Laurence B Brown combines history with powerful plot characters and today's reality to create the perfect read for those who enjoy thrillers mysteries and suspenseReview by Lauren Smith The Eighth Scroll by Laurence BrownArticle Source The Eighth Scroll A Modern Day Religious Murder Mystery

    its such a shame that this book is not out there like Dan Browns 'The Da Vinci Code' DrBrownes does an awesome job putting together historyfiction and even humour The book was definitely a page turner and written to 'block buster perfection ' The fact that the books central theme revolves around the infamous dead sea scrolls is even intriguing simply because THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS actually do exist and is vehemently guarded by the Vatican Behind all the action and chaos there is a historical and theological undertone to the book that uestions the authenticity of pauline scripture the modern church chooses to follow

    Source Received from Jeff at Gatekeepers Post Many thanks goes to Jeff for sending me a copy of this book for review I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review My rating 45The Eighth Scroll is a religious thriller that will captivate readers in this explosive read where knowing the wrong piece of information could get you killed Gerald and Michael Hansen are no strangers to rare artifacts as they have spent most of their lives going from dig to dig Gerald is a renowned archaeologist one who has spent much of his life on dig sites with both his deceased wife and son Michael Gerald's son is phenomenal for both his photographic memory and his propensity for knowing different dialects and languages They both realize that their lives are at stake when people around them are being murdered for knowing to much When Gerald and Michael arrive back home they finally put some of the pieces together however it isn't until 17 years later that Michael will come full circle and learn just what has gotten so many people close to him killed The Eighth Scroll is a controversial read as it challenges the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism giving Islam a favourable view Though this read is completely fictional it is one that revolves closely around these three belief systems Many of the characters are realistically portrayed and readers will be invested in the outcome Though the hunt for the scroll takes place over seventeen years one cannot help but identify with and care for Michael; as a determined and capricious fifteen year old and as the thirty two year old theologian and best selling author that he is today Some of his remarks are uite flippant in regards to the scroll in uestion but overall he is a multi dimensional and well written character There are many different organizations keeping tabs on the Hansen's and I enjoyed reading about their interactions and the humor filled scenes between certain characters There were some laugh out loud moments when items were alluded to and overall I felt that these scenes broke up the tension infused throughout the bookAll in all a remarkable and fast paced thriller in the style of Dan Brown Religious feelings aside this is an incredibly rich reading experience especially when coupled with the what ifs provided by the secret scroll If you enjoy reading Dan Brown you are sure to enjoy Dr Laurence B Brown's The Eighth Scroll
