It’s not very often that I get all giddy and start clapping and screaming when I learn of a new book, but in the case of Paul L. Maier I make an exception. Dr. Maier is my favorite author and I was elated to learn that Tyndale House Publishers just released The Constantine Codex. The Constantine Codex is the third book in the series that began with A Skeleton in God’s Closet in the early nineties, which was followed up with More than a Skeleton in 2003. This new book continues the story of Harvard Professor and unwitting adventurer Jonathan Weber. See the description from Tyndale House Publishers’ web site below:
“Harvard Professor Jonathan Weber is finally enjoying a season of peace when a shocking discovery thrusts him into the national spotlight once again. While touring monasteries in Greece, Jon and his wife Shannon—a seasoned archaeologist—uncover an ancient biblical manuscript containing the lost ending of Mark and an additional book of the Bible. If proven authentic, the codex could forever change the way the world views the holy Word of God. As Jon and Shannon work to validate their find, it soon becomes clear that there are powerful forces who don’t want the codex to go public. When it’s stolen en route to America, Jon and Shannon are swept into a deadly race to find the manuscript and confirm its authenticity before it’s lost forever.”
When it comes to fiction that will be enjoyed and treasured by Bible Geeks (myself included), Dr. Maier is the master. I can’t recommend his writing highly enough. If The Constantine Codex strikes your fancy, I’d suggest picking up A Skeleton in God’s Closet and More Thank a Skeleton, so you can read them all in order. My copy will be arriving from Amazon this Saturday and chances are I’ll finish it before end of day Sunday. Many thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for printing another of Dr. Maier’s works!
