Publisher's Summary

Dr. Jonathan Weber, Harvard professor and biblical scholar, is looking forward to his sabbatical year on an archaeological dig in Israel. But a spectacular find that seems to be an archaeologist's dream-come-true becomes a nightmare that could be the death rattle of Christianity. Meanwhile, Weber's strong interest in Shannon Jennings, daughter of the dig's director, is an exhilarating complication.

Carefully researched and compellingly written, this fast-paced thriller takes you from the dust of an archaeological dig to the laboratories of dedicated scientists to the halls of political and religious power, where world reaction is instant, fierce, and shattering. Moreover, A Skeleton in God's Closet explores the tension between doubt and faith, science and religion, and one man's determination to find the truth - no matter what the cost.

Hollywood

Other historical novels I've read by Dr. Maier have been 5 star. This one not so much. The romantic interest seemed forced -- while the bones of Christ have been found, the hero can't keep his mind and hands off a young woman he just met who seems to be 15 to 20 years younger. I felt as if a publisher told the author he needed a little spice to sell books. The bones of Christ were enough. We didn't need Indiana Jones.

Very well researched & understandable

I was so impressed with how the various scientific concepts were explained in such a way as to drive the story forward rather than bog it down.

Disappointed

Appreciate the authors detail in research and scientific testing process. However, the authors endeavor into romantic conversation appears to be written by a 6 year old. I will not be moving forward with the balance of this series.
