A Skeleton in God's Closet

by Paul Maier

This one's a mystery for archaeology geeks. What if the old joke, "Cancel Easter. They found the body." came true? Dr. Jonathan Weber discovers the body of Jesus of Nazareth buried in Ramallah. Or does he? He and his companions endeavor to verify the authenticity of their find. In the meanwhile, news of the discover leaks out and the world has to deal with the consequences of a Christ who has not risen. It's an intriguing concept and I did get caught up in the mystery. However, the book did come across as biblical scholar fan fiction. I love Dr. Maier's non-fiction and his lectures, but as a novelist--especially when writing scenes of romance--he has much to learn.
