Kurzbeschreibung

Stirring the flames of age-old controversies, The Eighth Scroll by Laurence B. Brown draws on the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to create an unbelievably dynamic and powerful story. Set in a world that teeters between orthodoxy and heresy, this thriller is packed with intrigue and adventure. When a Roman Catholic scholar involved in the Dead Sea Scrolls Project hides one of the scrolls because of the heretical message it contains, no one is the wiser until decades later, when a prominent archeologist discovers reference to the scroll in an archeological dig. This discovery spurs the world religions into a dangerous game of cat and mouse, in which all who seek the hidden scroll are mysteriously silenced, leaving the salvation of humankind to a father and son, who must either find the hidden scroll . . . or die trying.

Excellent! Very exciting and thought-provoking. I hope he writes more like it, I couldn't put it down. Better than Dan Brown.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Remarkable Story. Excellent Book! 7. April 2012

Book Review: The Eighth Scroll by Dr. Laurence B Brown
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
In what has to be one of the better works I have read in recent months, the writing here I engaging and impressive. Dr Brown writes a considered and eloquent descriptive and realistic dialogue throughout, which pulls the action along beautifully.

Character Development - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
One of the really outstanding features of this work, is the authors skill in endearing the reader to a group of characters, even the bad guys are given certain relatable qualities, despite the fact you know you need to dislike them.
Each character is definitive and unique and the story winds around each one with an intricate quality.

Descriptive - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
Like the characters, the scenes, locations and feelings are conveyed expertly. Even sounds, tastes and smells are described in exceptional detail. The ancient scenes at the start of the book really do lay down the background to the key elements of the plot, and the hops through to the present are well plotted and carefully develop all the remaining characters and sub-plots.

Language & Grammar - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
From the opening line, the level of language, editing and grammar is thoroughly professional and brilliantly executed. Any aspiring writers out there should consider this as a first-class example of how to get the finished article right.

Plot - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding) - NO SPOILERS
This is a strong storyline and with the interwoven sub-plots working hard to keep the reader on their toes, I can't recommend this book enough. The interaction between the characters makes the story run smoothly and, where necessary, violently through its motions. The back-plot of `the scroll' and its location inexorably links every character and as conclusions are drawn, the reader is taken on an awesome roller-coaster ride.

General - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
I guess you can see where this is going by now... This was an excellent book, one I thoroughly enjoyed and will undoubtedly read again. I picked this up last September, and it only got to the top of my reading pile a few days ago.
Needless to say, the content pulled me along to the point where I read into three consecutive nights in my search for the conclusion, and I was not disappointed.

FIVE stars. A quite exceptional book! Very, very highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable read with great action and story line 22. November 2011
Von "Dan" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Well I stumbled on this book while looking for something to give me a break from my regular genre which is apocalyptic in nature and thought at .99 cents I'd give it a try. Wow, I really enjoyed it.

This has great action and although this is a fiction book, the history within the story has peaked my interest a great deal. I plan to go back and do a lot of research and pleasure reading regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls.

I don't give stories away in my reviews but I did enjoy the excitement, history, fast-packed action, character development and the story development.

I'd say if you are Christian or Jewish and don't feel comfortable having your traditional thoughts and teachings provoked, you might not care for this book or find it offensive as a few other reviewers indicated by their ratings and reviews. Me? Well although I am Christian, I always like thought provoking readings and challenges but lets be honest here. This is a fiction book. Any good fiction book in my opinion will present as much factual information as possible along with the fiction in the book. It makes things more plausible and simply put, part of the fun of fiction is for it to seem as though it could be possible even if it isn't. To me the author did a great job with this. Corruption in government, religious organizations and secrete agencies is completely believable and history has shown us it has always existed but again folks, this is Fiction even if much of it is based on facts as we know them.

If the authors intent was to create an exciting read and provide thought-provoking information, for me the goal was accomplished. I really enjoyed this book. So why the four stars instead of five then? Well for me I might have different rating system. I reserve 5 stars for what I consider "knock 'em out of the park" books which of course is subjective to the reader, their likes and dislikes. This was a very good book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Very pleasureable and Insightful. Riveting 24. November 2016
Von Brandon Estes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Quite impressive. Not only does he fully develop characters in a realistic and purposeful way, he plays on the strings of one's heart by highlighting the true mysteries of previous revelations and what may have happened to them. Thrilling and very on point even politically. Very accurately depicts Mossad modus operandi. A good book on that is "By way of Deception" by Victor Ostrovsky.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A thrilling, humorous, surprising, and then satisfying reading adventure. 17. Juli 2013
Von K. Russell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The underlying theme of this story brings up discrepancies in the Christian and Judaic religions based off of authentic and documented history. It builds the case that Christianity strayed from the true teachings of God when it accepted Paul as a disciple, and Judaism rejected the last prophet. It then gently encourages the reader to explore Islam (the only remaining monotheistic religion).

The action and entertainment, in this novel, never stops. Then, with a weave of light humor and sweet romance, the canvas is complete. This novel was completely enjoyable from beginning to end.

And although the author gently lays down factual deviancies in Christianity and Judaism, obviously some readers will be offended by the content. However, if the reader can open their heart to the truth, they will discover the hidden treasure of The Eighth Scroll.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Action, adventure, mystery, what's not to like? 7. März 2012
Von Cory - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The author knows his history and is well versed in the legends
that intertwine with it. Mysterious religious cults, Roman legions
some of whom are torn between duty and falling faith in the gods
of their culture. In the center of all the chaos are the Dead Sea Scrolls.
One scroll in particular that contains information that some are willing to
die for and others are very willing to kill to prevent its contents form
becoming known. Excellent story telling, suspenseful and captivating from
beginning to end. The only downside was the underlying religious beliefs
of the author bleed through at times but maybe I'm being over sensitive to
his intentions. A real classic adventure.
