When peace seems within the realm of possibility in the Middle East, a earthquake rocks Jerusalem. The resulting shock waves could destroy the fledgling beginnings of a peace treaty signed mere days before. Behind the scenes the Muslim Brotherhood, the Mossad, and the US government each pursue their own agendas to thwart or stabilize the peace initiative. Control of the Temple Mount and the scroll and mezzah could determine the fate of the world.
What follows is an exciting and intense race to discover the truth about what truth is hidden on the mezuzah that protected Abiathar's scroll for all those centuries.
A search for the Tent of Meeting in pivotal in the this desperate bid to control the Temple Mound. But there is a personal hatred behind the Brotherhood's efforts.
The cost is high and it will be personal as the team that found the Third Temple is called on to act. But they are given no choice in the matter as they and those they hold dear again become targets of the Prophet's Guard. But more than Israel and the Middle East are at stake - the world is the ultimate prize. God's hand is is directing them if they can only trust Him to lead them to the truth in time.
The Brotherhood Conspiracy is excitement and intrigue combined with loss. Reading this one has to ask how far would I go to get to the truth? When would I say the cost is too high? The ending sets the reader up for a third book and I for one can't wait!
I received a copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review.
About the book:
Tom Bohannon's discovery of an ancient scroll led him on an international adventure and through mysteries of faith and politics, ending in a place not even he could imagine: the Third Temple of God hidden under Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But soon after his remarkable discovery, the future of the world changed again. Tom watched as a chasm tore apart Temple Mount, as new rivers swept through the Kidron Valley and into the streets of Old Jerusalem, their discovery swallowed by an earthquake, crushed under tons of stone and debris. A biblical prophecy realized. The final days were upon them.
Wondering how to recover from such a momentous find and such horrendous destruction, Tom's adventures are not over. No one knows how much time is left in these last days--a year? A hundred years? A thousand? Plagued by murderous dreams, Tom fears members of the Prophet Guard--killers who wear the Coptic cross with a lightning bolt slashing through it--are back and looking for him. But they are not the only threat to Tom and his team. Forces behind the Arab Spring have sinister plans. And underestimating their determination would be a fatal mistake.
The same fast-paced, page-turning prose that readers loved in The Sacred Cipher is back in Terry Brennan's eagerly awaited sequel, The Brotherhood Conspiracy.
