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 more easy to swallow than Dan Brown's 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 it!
The 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. However, this was short-lived and after a few pages I was swept away and thoroughly involved in the story.

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 puzzl What if the missing and final text of the Dead Sea Scrolls was found today?
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 found. Brown'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 disappear.
World-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. Michael 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 silent. If 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 recover. The 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.
Brown combines history with powerful plot, characters and today's reality to create the perfect read for those who enjoy thrillers, mysteries and suspense. Jun 16, Rand rated it it was amazing. 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. Jan 22, David rated it it was amazing. Great Book by Dr. Brown, an action filled fiction that should be converted into a movie. This has a bunch of Musim characters who actually are good people :.
