I had the privilege of reading an advanced copy* of this book, and OH.MY. did I enjoy it! I have found a Christian author I would actually read! Dr. Munroe is a real character with real goals and troubles, doubts, and confrontations with his faith. I was so happy to find an author who can actually create real-life Christian characters, alongside his terrific authorial voice and action-packed plot. Whether I get to help with their production or not, I intend to read this series for myself, and Sc ...more

This book definitely did not lack for action - there is the possibility that an old religious scroll was found and EVERYONE wants their hands on it. We follow Dr. Jonathan Munro as he tries to locate and verify the existence of the scroll. Unfortunately, Jonathan is constantly meeting trouble along the way.

Honestly, despite all of the action, it did take awhile for me to get into this book. I feel like the beginning of the book was riddled with characters that for the most part, had little deve

The Lost Scrolls is a very quick read, so much so that I read it literally in 1 2 hour sitting! I could not believe that I got through it that quickly-it went like a speeding roller coaster from the first chapter! The plot is believable and with an ending that makes you wonder, as to whether to their will be a sequel!

You have to love a book that hooks you from the beginning and makes you want more. The plot was interesting and made you want to go searching for the truth behind the book, for inst

Michael J. Scott has penned a page turner full of mystery, intrigue and rough characters. A legendary lost scroll may have been found, and since Jon Munro is an expert and his university has been involved in seeking this text, he is sent to Turkey to verify and obtain the ancient writings. His former roommate who had ruined his own reputation and had a hand in rocking Munro’s world is the finder of this document. Full of distrust and disbelief…Munroe doesn’t even believe that the document is rea ...more

Michael Scott starts off his writing with a prologue, but interestingly it is told from the point of view of two characters. After a stabbing and a strange key, you jump right into the story. The main character, Dr. Jonathon Munro, is a cross between Indiana Jones and a reluctant spy. Munro is skeptical that the New Testament scrolls found are even real. Nevertheless, he is sent off to find these scrolls before others can lay claim to them. As if trying to find ancient artifacts was not hard eno ...more

The Lost Scrolls was a good, fast read that I finished in one day. We had just returned from an out-of-town trip and I needed to read a good book to wind down. While The Lost Scrolls wasn't exactly a relaxing book, it definitely held my interest. It is nearly free of bad language and there were no graphic romantic scenes, so that I didn't blush at all while reading. I'm not a fan of books that should be rated R. Thankfully The Lost Scrolls would be a book that I could pass along to my grandmothe ...more

Fast moving, mystery/thriller, good stuff! Love books that take me around the world to different places I will probably never actually see.

A priceless artifact is discovered and more than one person wants it but the problem is it has been hidden yet again. Tracking down the artifact has fallen to a college professor and his former love who happens to be the sister of archaeologist Stephen Kaufman, who discovered and hide the artifact. They are chased, shot at, kidnapped, betrayed and basically t

meh. Not really sure why I finished it. Non-stop action, but not much character development. Even the action is rather unrealistic. I somehow doubt real people would be able to think or function at that level without sleep for weeks.

A freebie I downloaded to my Kindle. This was a sort of Christian fiction book version of an Indiana Jones or a Librarian (with Noah Wyle, we like those movies!), movie. An absent minded college professor is sucked into international intrigue looking for lost Bibilical documents from after the death of Christ. Fun, easy read, I really enjoyed it!

Another great adventure seeking type book that is clean. Some romance scenes that are tastefully done. A few colorful words, but very few. Plus it was free for my kindle. So that makes it even better. I felt a few parts were a little to drawn out and long, but overall it had a nice flow to it. I felt like it ended really abruptly.

The Lost Scrolls by Michael J. Scott is a wonderful religious espionage story with archeology mixed into the story line. It is a great book for someone who is wanting to read something in the genre. It is not as heavy as some and easy to follow the story line.

Fast-paced action adventure that reminds me of Indiana Jones, including the fantasy of surviving some scary situations and trotting around the world. Recommended for other archaeology junkies.

Must clarify that I did not finish this book. Too bad that I recently read another book with a very similar theme. I suspect this one would be better but alas I don't care to read two.

Action packed book with fun characters and a not-so-predictable ending.
