I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Scroll for several reasons, the primary one being that it was - for me - a good story to read with a good pace and plausible set up. Whether or not the setup is probable is, well, another story, but it reads as plausible within the context of geography, politics, archaeology, and what the authors propose.
Another reason why I liked the book is that Mr. Jeffry's and Mr. Gansky's writing makes the region and archaeology (for the story, specifically biblical archaeology) come more alive and shows how the two are intertwined.
The characters and their various complimentary and conflicting personalities are another aspect that, along with the other reasons, make the story come together.
A wonderful read.
One last dig. One final descent into the twisted tunnels of ancient Jerusalem. Will the truth be found among the treasures that lie beneath the holy city?
Dr. David Chambers, leading archaeologist, has spent his professional career uncovering the facts in the artifacts. His work sets the standard for biblical research in the Holy Land. But surrounded by the evidence, David has sunk into an abyss of doubt. A painful experience with a seemingly unresponsive God has left him without hope. The Old Testament scriptures that used to fill his mind with wonder now drive him into frustration. His unanswered questions have ripped him from both his academic pursuits and the love of his life his fiancée, Amber.
An old friend and mentor reaches out to David, enticing him with the riches described in the enigmatic Copper Scroll. Losing ground with his peers, his love, and his faith, David Chambers has a choice to make. Will he undertake one final dig to unlock a secret that could alter the course of history?

In a world where faith has been eclipsed by the allure of doubt, The Scroll offers a different journey: a gripping adventure to find truth worth dying for.
