Sacred Quest: In Search of the Lost Ark of the Covenant

Sacred Quest Purchase this Book

For those who have only a passing acquaintance with archeology and also yearn to discover more about the meandering path of Middle East history, this book has much to offer. "SACRED QUEST," In Search of the Lost Ark of the Covenant, is a work that has put challenging and controversial history to the test. "Truth shall spring out of the earth," a Psalmist wrote some 3,000 years ago, and for centuries archeologists have worked feverishly to locate the Holy Ark.

One of the world's most fascinating mysteries is the haunting questions of what happened to the Holy Ark, if it still exists, and incredibly, whether the Ark of the Covenant was ever housed within the Holy of Holies. From the desolate sands of the Sinai to the fertile valley of the Euphrates, the Land of the Bible has been yielding its buried secrets about the Ark all too slowly. Recent archeological discoveries have shed light on ancient scriptures, offering additional insight into the sacred texts, and the people who wrote them, giving rise to three of the world's great religions.

Deploying a remarkable investigative depth, the characters interwoven into Sacred Quest draws on Biblical history, translations, beliefs, myths, new ideas, theories and legends regarding the Holy relic, with accurate attention given to historical evidence. The novel includes events just prior to the time the Ark was first housed in the Holy of Holies of Solomon's First Temple located on the great rock, Jerusalem's highest mount.

As a link to history in the chain of generations, there is the story of the creation and the eating of the apple, the first murder, and the great flood; a world of pagans; the origins of Abraham and the covenant with God; a son almost sacrificed on the alter by a father in a gesture of his faith; about patriarchs roaming about a promised land; brothers who fought selling one into slavery who became the second in command to a powerful pharaoh of Egypt, his long enslavement and the coming of Moses; about famine, plagues, and freedom; the parting and crossing of the sea and a revelation on a mountaintop; the building of the Ark; the Ten Commandments; wanderings in the wilderness; the deaths of Aaron cruel Babylonians; Ezra; Nehemiah; the fearless Maccabee; Greece; Romans; exile; Christianity; Islam and after all of this, the search for the lost Ark of the Covenant continues.
