A Skeleton in Gods Closet (Jonathan Weber #1) by Paul L. Maier

When an ancient skeleton is discovered in Israel, will it shed new light on the life of Jesus or plunge the world into chaos?

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 archaeologists dream-come-true becomes a nightmare that many fear will be the death rattle of Christianity.

Carefully researched and compellingly written, A Skeleton in Gods Closet explores the tension between faith and doubt when science and religion collide. In the end, it’s a thought provoking page turner driven by one mans determination to find the truth—no matter what the cost.

A Skeleton in God's Closet

Maier in and published by Thomas Nelson Publishers , is a fiction novel in which one archaeological find challenges the widely-accepted Christian doctrine and jeopardizes the faith of millions of believers around the globe. Though the story is fictitious, the premise is frightening. The pillar on which the Christian faith stands is Jesus Christ. Christians believe that he was born of a virgin , died, and rose from the dead. Without any one of these elements, his saving grace would be nonexistent, as righteousness would not have been fulfilled, his sacrifice null and void. Without the virgin birth of the Messiah , Jesus would have had, per human nature , " original sin ;" Original sin would have rendered Jesus not perfect, not the "blameless Lamb of God ".

Maier My rating: 1 of 5 stars. I really wanted to like this book. I cannot. The only reason I finished it was so I could feel truly justified in writing a review. First, the positives: It is very scholarly, and full of information nerds like me can appreciate. I enjoyed the long explanations of various scientific processes used to authenticate archaeological finds. This kind of thing has always piqued my interest, and I enjoyed those sectors of the book, even though they felt drawn-out and slow.

Dissecting Christian Trends

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I knew of Paul Maier because of my love of Christian history.,

  1. Imagine it is present day and a an archeological team has just unearthed bones in an Israel tomb which all point to be the bones of Jesus.
