Cherrybomb | 8 comments I'm trying to find a book I read back in the early 1990s about a priest who thinks he's found the remains of Jesus. It takes place in the US, it's totally a work of fiction--long before the Jesus Seminar or any of that. I thought the book had the word "Betrayed" or "Betrayal" in the title, but I'm not able to narrow it down through Google or Amazon.

Anyone who may have a clue--I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you!

Cherrybomb, is your book:

- Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs or
- The Body by Richard Ben Sapir?

Cherrybomb | 8 comments No we ruled those out based on the link above. Thank you. Not the same book.

Cherrybomb | 8 comments I solved my search the book is called Act of God A Novel by Charles Templeton.

It’s a difficult book to source because even amazon has it mixed up with another book same name that’s humor.

Thanks for your help!

You need to be a member to "check out" a book, but membership is free; you only need to give them an e-mail address.
