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

Carefully researched and compellingly written, A Skeleton in God’s 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 man’s determination to find the truth—no matter the cost.

A much denser read than I’ve been exposed to lately. Lots of mind-numbing archaeological details and drawings, and a plethora of poorly drawn one-dimensional characters. That said, the premise of this book was so absolutely fascinating I could not put it down. I don’t think I would have a problem if the find turned out to be true—my Christianity is a lot more flexible than the Church’s!
