About Admin Fromm
Biblical archaeologist David Chambers, along with his professional nemesis and his ex-fiancee, have been recruited to investigate the Copper Scroll--an ancient artifact rumored to contain the location of a host of treasures from the second Jewish temple. From the start, their quest is plagued by violence and setbacks. Someone is determined to keep them from succeeding--but who? And why? And how do these opponents know so much about their work? And how far are they willing to go to keep Chambers' [...]
Suspense is definitely a well-suited label for this book. At first, when I found out the book is set in 2012, I wanted to plant my face into a wall. I couldn't help but wonder if this was going to end up being a end-of-the-world type book that would only feed the world's crazy contemplation of what next year will bring. Thankfully it didn't turn out to be like thatr the most part. While the book itself never actually came out and spelled out the end of the world coming in 2012 (supposedly), it o [...]
An interesting tale regarding Israel and many lost relics from Christ’s time. I found the story fast paced with great flow. Biblical Archeology is a form of study I didn’t know existed and yet it makes complete sense. Why not have a group out there to study the Bible by finding artifacts that point to its truth and exsistance. enpedia/wiki/Biblical The story followed a group of archeologists as they interpreted a found copper scroll to help them find the lost temple artifacts. Intrigue and s [...]
This one just wasn't for me. I couldn't get into the story and never warmed up to the characters. There was also clunky info-dumping that I have a hard time getting past in any story. I really thought I'd like this book because I've always been really fascinated with archaeology. I've taken college courses in archaeology and anthropology, so it's definitely not that the subject matter didn't interest me, the story just wasn't told in a way as to keep my interest. I don't think I'd recommend this [...]

“equally filthy pair of jeans. Next to her stood David Chambers, hotshot archaeologist and former fiance. The picture, which she had been using as a bookmark in the novel she was reading, must have slipped free while she was packing. “Keep it.” Nordoff raised an eyebrow. “That's a bit harsh. Isn't there anything in this photo you miss?” She shrugged. “I kinda miss those jeans.” Amber walked from the tent.” - The ScrollDr. David Chambers is Ganksy and Jeffrey's “Raiders of The L [...]

The Scroll by Dr Grant Jeffrey seems to be more about Biblical prophecy and archaeology than science-fiction or fantasy (which is why I originally chose it). Dr. David Chambers has turned his back on his faith and is trying to start a new chapter in his life when an old friend, Abram Ben-Judah, calls in a favor for a project. While Chambers tries to focus on historical fact, doing a dig in Jerusalem forces him to face the Bible—the very thing he is trying to avoid.The story is very slow moving [...]

I love this type of story, biblical archaeological fiction, so I was very excited to receive this book from Blogging for Books. The book did not let me down. It was an excellent read. I enjoyed the pace, the characters, and the content. For a book of this genre to be good, it has to be believable. You have to really believe that the scenario could happen. This story was definitely that. I did not see any inconsistencies with it compared to the Bible or the true archaeological record. The story w [...]

he Scroll by Grant R. Jeffrey and Alton L. Gansky is an interesting book full of history, suspense, and a little romance. Dr. David Chambers is an expert archaeologist, who has made the study of Bible history his main area of expertise. He felt that studying the land of the Bible and finding the artifacts strengthened his relationship with God, but that was before his mother died of cancer.

Dr. David Chambers, renowned archaeologist, has lost his faith, his fiancee, and his interest in Old Testament related research. But when he is presented with the opportunity to look for the treasures of the Copper Scroll, he cannot say no.Think "Indiana Jones got saved". That pretty much sums up the tone of this novel. It isn't bad, you understand; but it was predictable at times. Stock characters and dialogue, the usual plot twists, etc. However, I would still recommend this to anyone who enjo [...]
I was really excited and couldn't wait to "dig in" and read this book, I love adventure, Biblical archaeology, suspense, romance, and intrigue but was left with a feeling that this book was kind of a re-make of Joel Rosenberg's The Copper Scroll but with a really mean main character that's rude to everyone. David Chambers the main character, is not very likeable and if you knew him in real life I don't think you would want to be his friend. I'm sure others might enjoy this book if they haven't a [...]
I received this book right before giving birth to a beautiful baby girl in September. It's just now that I've managed to finish it, but what a blessing it has been for those late night feedings. *The Scroll* delivers on so many levels. A story that reminds us of what a necessity it is to find balance in life, it still manages to provide the blockbuster feel while building from a place of humility. Dr. Chambers is a character that you will see yourself in, curious and defiant, his doubt and pain [...]
For starters, the cover really doesn't sell this book. I had the option of reviewing it, and kept passing it up, just because the cover is so unappealing.Still, I love a good Indiana Jones-esque treasure hunt, so I figured I'd give this book a try. I kept picking it up, hoping it would get interesting, but I'd end up putting it down after a few pages.After a while, the story picks up, but even then, the characters are "stock," the plot twists are pretty predictable, the bad guys are all Islamic [...]
I really liked this book as I have every other Alton Gansky book that I have read so far. I really liked the historical detail that went into this. That being said, I had to knock the star rating down a notch because that same detail wasn't there for the ending. It seemed rushed. That certainly did not take much away from my enjoyment and I will be recommending this to several people that have read many of my recommendations. This will definitely get a strong recommendation.
I absolutely LOVED this book. It was right up my alley, Biblical History and Archaeology rock my world :) I was hooked from page one and literally spent several nights up reading far longer than anticipated! It was a hard book to put down. David's journey throughout the book was inspiring and left me wanting more from the author. I would recommend this book to anyone with interest in Egyptology, Anthropology, Biblical History, or anyone that just wants a good, gripping read :)
Picked this novel up at the library because it sounded interesting. The plot was decently fast paced and kept me turning the pages. A leading archaeologist in the field of biblical artifacts is summoned to find the lost treasures of the Copper Scroll. In looking for the treasures, he is in danger by factions that do not want the artifacts found. This was a very entertaining story with twists that kept me guessing to the end.
I've read several of Alton Gansky's books and LOVED them! This one will not go down as one of my favorites. It was interesting to learn more about the biblical archeology field. But the story seemed to drag at times and I felt like there were loose ends. However, I'd read another Alton Gansky book in a heartbeat!
Characters were annoying. Plot took too long to get to the point; didn't get exciting until two-thirds of the way in, by then didn't care, just wanted it to end! Interesting subject matter, but not executed well at all. Don't get what's up with the Ezekiel tablets?
Fast paced . I enjoyed the historical background of the story. Enjoyed the archeological dig adventure. Got the book because I've read Alton Gansky in the past and found his stories well done. Will consider more of his in the future.
Very good plot line. This book kept me engaged. At one point I was thinking, "This is a horrid book", but it turned out okay. I would recommend this book.
I was not so impressed with this novel. this was not the fast paced dialogue and story I am so used to with this genre.
awesome book couldnt put down wondering what was next to come wish I could find sequel but none out yet
Entertaining. I enjoyed the mystery, the twists and turns, but the end kind of fizzled out. I expected some sort of big, huge ending, or some big surprise. Didn't happen.
