Von STEPHEN T. McCARTHY - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
All hands on deck for the reading of Robert Cornuke's, THE LOST SHIPWRECK OF PAUL, a seaworthy tale of Biblical proportions! This book should appeal to you if : A) You are a crusty, old, armchair sea dog. B) A Christian interested in Biblical archaeology. Or, C) Simply a reader looking for a good story. But you will especially love the book if you happen to be all three : A crusty, old, Christian, armchair sea dog looking for a good story related to Biblical archaeology. Now we're talkin'!

This latest installment in Robert Cornuke's series of adventures that take him in search of evidence to support the Bible's historicity, sets sail for the island of Malta, seeking the ancient lead anchors from the shipwreck of Saint Paul. Using the words of Luke recorded in Acts, chapter 27, as his first mate, Cornuke calculates where these long lost lead treasures are apt to be found. It turns out that the objects of our hero's quest had already been located and raised from the sea floor by Maltese divers in the late 1960s and early 1970s. (Although the island natives had no inkling of the tremendous importance of their discoveries since the traditional site of Paul's wreck is a cove considerably further north.) Unfortunately, this fact tends to let the wind out of the sails in Cap'n Bob's adventure just a little bit.

Nevertheless, it's a slightly padded, but worthwhile story that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that these recovered artifacts, which meet all of the demanding criteria, are indeed remnants of Saint Paul's misadventure at sea. And once again we come face to face with the prospect that, despite the hysterical ranting to the contrary by society's willfully ignorant atheistic and unthinking agnostic bilge rats, the Bible is a reliable historical document! So there! Let 'em stick this in their dinghy and smoke it!

This title is certainly superior to Cornuke's disappointing, IN SEARCH OF THE LOST MOUNTAINS OF NOAH, but not nearly as suspenseful as his most important book, IN SEARCH OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD (THE DISCOVERY OF THE REAL MOUNT SINAI.) But all in all, THE LOST SHIPWRECK OF PAUL manages to stay afloat while both enlightening and entertaining. It's a quick read, making it an ideal companion on a plane flight, or for a weekend at the beach. Although I doubt that I would pack it along on a pleasure cruise, if you catch my "drift."

Very hard to put down! 24. Oktober 2004
Von B. D. Weimer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A fascinating recreation of Cornuke's detective work on Malta. He writes with a light touch. You see Cornuke interacting with the evidence as it emerges, and you are confident that Cornuke will not oversell his case. Indeed, the book ends with an open-ended sense that further facts can still come to light.

I also enjoyed his recreation of conversations with the Maltese divers. You see Cornuke's respect for this hardy and self-reliant group of explorers ... and are amazed that he can secure their cooperation.

I agree with another reviewer that the 9/11 part of the book seems like a diversion. No doubt it was important to Cornuke, but it doesn't seem relevant to the story. Still, I give the book an enthusiastic 5 stars! I can't imagine anyone interested in the Bible or archaeology who wouldn't enjoy it!

Anchors, Maltese divers, ...and oh yeah.. Paul 11. September 2003
Von Steven Lynch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The worst thing about Cornuke's books...is that they have to end.
I'm not sure if he's got the same Ghost writer on this one, but I've enjoyed all 3 of the books I've bought from the 4 Cornuke has produced.
This book is an adventure by proxy of the early days of diving...and the discoveries made by those lucky enough...and daring enough to be there.

The Maltese fishermen of the 60's and 70's had no way of knowing what they had found. Cornuke however has done the best job possible in proving that the lead anchor stocks pictured in the middle of the book, ARE in fact...the anchors spoken of in Acts 27.
The events of the book touch upon Sept. 11, 2001. I'm not sure I followed Cornuke's attempt to make the discovery somehow spiritually relevant to today.
It's a cool discovery, but spiritually significant? Guess you'd have to be there.
Regardless of how I felt though, I do highly recommend the book. Incredible adventure and some apologetics mixed in.

A great read!!!!! 16. Februar 2004
Von Richard D. Cappetto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely loved reading The Lost Shipwreck of Paul by Robert Cornuke. When I purchased the book, I thought It was just going to be a dry archeological or apologetics book on searching for some evidence to prove the historicity of the Biblical author Luke (who wrote the Gospel according to Luke and the acts of the Apostles). While the book is about archeological discovery and about proving the historicity of Luke, it is much much more. First off I like Cornuke's writing style, he writes in a way like an investigator (he was a policeman at one time) yet paints word pictures in a nice way, away that fills the mind with his adventures. The Book is very entertaining and I found myself getting lost in the text many times, wondering off to the places and events he was describing. I think this book may spark you interests in many things, Scuba diving for one (this part will especially appeal to us males), Visiting Malta for vacation (Love the word pictures, and there are a few color pictures inside the book, the Maltese sound like a wonderful people), getting involved in archeology (maybe in relating to the historicity of the Bible), and in seeking out the Bible for yourself. Weather you are a believer in the Bible or not I think you will find this book thoroughly enjoyable.

Gripping 30. Juli 2003

This is an amazing book! Using the Bible as a roadmap, Mr. Cornuke once again takes us on a fascinating journey into ancient times. This time his search is for the four anchor's that were dropped near Malta during a shipwreck as Paul the apostle was being transported to Rome. The harrowing account can be found in the New Testament book of Acts.
This book is very well written and full of surprises and adventure. I was planning to read it off and on during the summer as time permitted but from the first chapter I couldn't put it down. It's so amazing to think of the treasures this world holds; actual evidence that the people in the bible really existed and their stories really happened. Read this book, you will not be disappointed.
