about the book

“A brilliant novel written with the authority of a scholar and the skill of a gifted storyteller.” –Peggy Webb, USA Today bestselling author of The Language of Silence

An unforgettable story of two courageous couples who risk everything for truth. Amid a revolution, archaeologist Christopher Jordan and ancient manuscript expert Kathryn Ferguson travel to Syria in search of the original scroll of Marks’ Gospel. Paralleling their quest is the story of the evangelist’s escape with the scroll from the Roman siege of Jerusalem in 70 C.E., his struggles to complete the manuscript and his journeys and efforts with the daughter of Peter the Apostle to protect and save it for the ages. For both couples, time is running out and enemies are closing in. Richly evocative and fiercely moving, this literary thriller explores the hard questions: Did Mark intentionally omit the resurrection story, leaving it shrouded in mystery? Or did it become detached and lost forever? Discover the answer in The Lost Page.
