The centurion who speared Christ also guarded the tomb. When the body is missing, Pilate orders his arrest. He flees. The spear has special powers. An angel orders him to write a manuscript and hide it. He writes a second manuscript and hides it, before being captured by the Romans in Ephesus. He writes his final testimonial, then hides it along with the spear.
After an earthquake in 2030, one of the manuscripts is found by two American archeologists. A hunt for the other manuscripts and the spear takes them to Jordan, Israel, back to Turkey, and finally America. America has become very secular, and there is legislation proposed to limit Christianity in America. It will be voted upon on Good Friday. When word gets out of the found manuscripts, a chase follows. The Christians want to publish it, and the atheists and Muslims want to destroy it.

Binge-worthy. I couldn't put it down !!
I really enjoyed this story. I had many other things to do, but I put them all aside to binge through this book in 3 days. I couldn't put it down! The story is compelling, detailed, fast paced, and believable. I like to buy the text and Audiobook version and read alongside the Narration.
I liked the aspect of the spear and how and when it would work and the situations where it wouldn't. Also the politics and technology, set in the future, are believable, should the current trends continue.
Narrator was good and fit the style of the book well.
Reminds me of Indian Jones with a biblical twist
Narrator/Producer ... R. Paul Matty
LOL ... Well, as the narrator, I have much criticism regarding the performance, yet, respectful to the author, I will refrain. :)
It was especially difficult to narrate the voices of such Biblical giants as occur in this work; even quoted words of our Savior. Very, very difficult. I am and remain so beneath. I can only hope I did them a respectful justice.
None in particular.
Oh, for sure .... Longinus!!! So many questions!!! :)
It was truly an honor and a pleasure to narrate this work. Thom Vines' passion with history and His Word is obvious, and he clearly "did his homework," here; effectively entwining Biblical and secular history, then extrapolating a very real and scary future with his wonderfully creative genius resulting in a very contemporary, exciting, and inspirational work. Congrats, Mr. Vines!! :)
