    This book is an intriguing page turner From the very beginning to the last word the author held me riveted to the story eagerly anticipating what would happen next An international thriller the novel leads the reader through plot twists and turns around unexpected corners and deep into Biblical historyTerry Brennan has defined believable characters and launched them on a seemingly impossible uest riddled with danger and brimming with adventure He captures the challenge of the mission as he ushers his characters through a cacophony of doubt fear disaster and hopeThe pacing was just right enough to keep the reader guessing what was coming next yet detail and imagery never slowed the action There is nothing preachy about this Christian novel but it is so well researched and presented that even those who normally don’t read Christian fiction would probably enjoy itGreat news is that there is a seuel The Brotherhood Conspiracy which is on my TBR listI would recommend The Sacred Cipher to any reader who enjoys a fast paced mystery thriller that is exceptionally well written

    Sacred Cipher is the kind of book that sucks you in slowly and then won't let you go til it spits you out at the very end What I mean to say is that it took me a few chapters to get oriented to what was going on who everybody was and where the story was going Then I had to grab on with both hands and just hold on for the ride There are plenty of seeds of truth in this book and storyline the preacher Charles Spurgeon and his love of books the Demotic language and the Rosetta Stone Sir Edward Elgar and the Dorabella Cipher Abiathar of Jerusalem and the Bowery Mission all of these things are real Terry Brennan takes these items and people of fact and weaves an amazing story of mystery intrigue and some incredible suspense that kept me up until 300 am reading to finish because I couldn't go to bed until I knew how it ended Archeology puzzles theories Muslims Israelis assasins and the President throw in a couple Americans and a Brit and a Sacred Cipher and what you have is a tale that will set you on edge and keep you holding your breath

    I believe what has always drawn me to the Indiana Jones movies is the possibility of the discovery of an ancient biblical artifact being discovered that might hold untold powers in the right or wrong hands For those of us that study the Bible we know that many religious artifacts still remain hidden even continually searched for to this day That is just the reason for my fascination about novels that deals with that type of genre A bit action adventure mystery and of course suspense For those that love such types like National Treasure The DaVince Code or the Indiana Jones series you might just want to check out Terry Brenna who has written a series of books called the Jerusalem Prophecies Series The first novel in the series The Sacred Cipher takes readers into the heart of a discovery of an ancient scroll that has been found in the late 1800's by Charles Spurgeon In the metal case contains a scroll consisting of a series of unknown characters on it and from all appearances is very old The only issue Charles has with it is knowing what it says and even how to go about reading it He only knows he must mail it to a professor in London who might be able to help As he is attempting to do this he notices a group of men want to stop him from taking the scroll from Egypt and will stop at nothing to ensure they get it back Nothing As the scroll's mysteries deepen Tom Bohannon discovers an old map room hidden in an old church during the present day Calling in support for what he discovers with scientists and historians he trusts he unlocks a safe believed to contain a priceless collection of old religious books Among them he finds a metal case containing a scroll along with a letter warning whoever has it that is must be uncoded and protected whatever the cost and that danger surrounds those in whose possession it remains It will take an entire team of men to use all the resources available to them to unlock the mystery of the scroll and what they discover could uite possibly mean the end of the world if what is reveals is true Now all they can do is true to find out if is true or just some kind of random treasure hunt but if that is the case why are there so many people out there killing others just to stop them? I received The Sacred Cipher by Terry Brennan compliments of Kregel Publications for my honest review I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review At first the book was hard to get into with so many characters being introduced and understanding the difficulties in dealing with ancient languages and cryptology but the further into the story you get the involved you become in wanting to know if such a thing is there and if it is possible By the end you will do anything to get your hands on the seuel The Brotherhood Conspiracy For me this one was a 45 out of 5 stars and now I can't wait to read the next one Knowing Bible prophecy things just got a whole lot interesting

    A good read I can understand some of the problems mentioned in the negative reviews; but overall I thought it was a good adventure story Not sure I'll read any of the others in the series Too many books too little time; I have to be selective

    Renovations at the Bowery Mission in New York City uncover a hundred year old office containing a collection of rare books sent to the director of the mission by a world renowned minister during his travels But one item of this collection an ancient scroll includes a letter from the minister with this warning “Within it are written certain assertions which if true and verified will dramatically alter our understanding of the past our perception of the present and our hope for the futureIt is also on of the most dangerous documents in existence A document I am convinced some men would commit murder to possess and other men would commit murder to destroy”Director of the Bowery Mission former investigative reporter Tom Bohannon begins pursuit of the the meaning of the scroll written in a language not used in over 1200 years and discovers the warning in the letter to be very trueI would put this into the category of “religious artifact thriller” This one is faith based than some in this genre Bohannon will face obstacles both ancient and modern while attempting to complete the hunt for the answer of the scroll For me the reason for the adventure the challenges and dangers overcome in pursuit and the main characters all went together in an enjoyable way
