** spoiler alert ** Okay, another Steve Berry book that gives mixed signals. Just like the Dan Brown stuff, he tries to discredit everything you think that you know about religion. In this one, he has St. Jerome intentionally manipulating the Old and New Testaments. He also has the Old Testament lands actually in Asia and says that no ancient texts really exists of any biblical writings before 900 A.D.(or C.E., if you prefer). He also states that there is not archeaological evidence that Isreal is really where any of the bible took place.

He seems to forget all about the Dead Sea Scrolls (which contain parts of every Old Testament book but Esther), Hadrian's wall, the tunnels and wells beneath Jerusalem, and everything else that is chronicled nicely in Biblical Archeaology Review in every issue.

Berry is a great story teller and needs to stick to the story and stop trying to tear down religion. In this book, he goes after Christians, Jews, and Moslems with great fury (Jews being his greatest target).
