Product Description

An ancient skeleton is discovered in Israel - will it shed new light on the life of Jesus or plunge the world into darkness and chaos?

Dr. Jonathan Weber, Harvard professor and biblical scholar, is looking forward to his sabbatical year on an archaeological dig in Israel. But a spectacular find that seems to be an archaeologist's dream-come-true becomes a nightmare that could be the death rattle of Christianity.

Publisher's Description

When an ancient skeleton is discovered in Israel, will it shed new light on the life of Jesus or plunge the world into chaos?

Dr. Jonathan Weber, Harvard professor and biblical scholar, is looking forward to his sabbatical year on an archaeological dig in Israel. But a spectacular find that seems to be an archaeologist’s dream-come-true becomes a nightmare that many fear will be the death rattle of Christianity.

Carefully researched and compellingly written, A Skeleton in God’s Closet explores the tension between faith and doubt when science and religion collide. In the end, it’s a thought-provoking page-turner, driven by one man’s determination to find the truth—no matter the cost.

Author Bio

Dr. Paul L. Maier is the Russell H. Seibert Professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University. He is also a historical novelist and serves as Second Vice President of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod.

    Jon Weber was a professor at Harvard and also an author. Austin Jennings was an internationally known senior archaeologist at the British School in Jerusalem. Austin requested Jon spend his Sabbatical year in Israel to assist him on a dig.

    Austin and his crew were working at Ramah, birthplace of Samuel the Prophet. Ramah was known by a number of other names, including Rama, Ramatha, Ramathem and Arimathea.

    While working at the site, they came across a sarcophagus buried in a cave. Next to it was a small jug containing a scroll. Inside was a skeleton and a burial cloth. The inscription on the sarcophagus indicated the skeleton was that of Joseph of Arimathea, who was a member of the Jewish Sanhedrin.

    However, when they had experts examine the skeleton and the scroll, it appeared to be someone other than Josephsomeone much more famous.

    Initially, the characters and the discovery was interesting to read about, but then the story seemed to drag. The romance between Jon and Shannon seemed forced, and included too many intimate details. If you enjoy Biblical history and archaeology, this is worth reading.
