Book Description

Saddam is gone, Arafat is dead, and a new Iraq is rising. But when a suicide bomber strikes Washington and assassinations unfold from London to Los Angeles, Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy are drawn back into a world of terror they thought was over. At the heart of the mystery lies a 2,000-year-old scroll describing unimaginable treasures that could lead to the Third Jewish Temple. Some call it history's greatest treasure map. Others call it a road map to Armageddon. But the time to find the truth is running out fast.


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In 1956, a scroll was uncovered that shocked the world.

The world is about to be shocked again.

On June 1, 1956, the New York Times broke a story that captured the imagination of the world. Another Dead Sea Scroll had been found, unlike any before it, describing unimaginable treasures worth untold billions buried in the hills east of Jerusalem and under the Holy City itself.

In the years that followed, some scholars came to believe the Copper Scroll could be history’s greatest treasure map, one that could lead to the discovery of the Second Temple treasures and the building of the Third Jewish Temple.

But the scroll’s code has never been broken, and experts from all sides warn that any effort by Israel to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem would undoubtedly unleash a war of biblical proportions.

Now, more than fifty years after the Copper Scroll was unveiled, New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg takes you on his most exciting and heart-pounding ride yet.
  • Saddam Hussein is gone.
  • Yasser Arafat is dead.
  • A new Iraq is rising.
But so, too, is a new evil, and now White House advisors Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy find themselves facing a terrifying new threat triggered by an ancient mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Searching for Temple Treasures February 4, 2007
Format:Hardcover
The Copper Scroll (2006) is the fourth evangelical thriller in the Last Jihad series, following The Ezekiel Option. In the previous volume, a massive earthquake occurred under Jerusalem. Then red hot stones fell out of space to strike Russia and her allies when they attempted to destroy Israel. Military units and installations were the hardest hit, but government offices, shrines, mosques and other buildings were devastated. Mecca and Medina were smashed flat.

Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy were saved from Russian security and army troops by yawning crevices that swallowed their pursuers. As Moscow burned around them, Jon and Erin fled down the river in a speedboat.

In this novel, Jon and Erin are married in full church ceremony. Shortly after the minister pronounces them man and wife, pagers start going off among the witnesses. A suicide bomber has attacked in the heart of Washington, DC, but the victims are only ordinary people.

After dining with their friends, Joh and Erin leave for their honeymoon. They swear a mutual pledge to leave politics behind and just enjoy their new marriage. After their first night together, Jon asks Erin where she would like to spend the rest of their honeymoon and she chooses Ronda in Andalusia.

After enjoying being together and visiting the intriguing landmarks of the town, Jon finds an urgent message at the hotel from Ken Costello, who had taken over Jon's former position as senior advisor to the President. Returning the call, Jon learns that Eli had been ambushed in Israel and was undergoing emergency surgery. Jon and Erin rushed to Israel to be with their old friend.

I reread The Ezekial Option to get me back up to date on events leading up to The Copper Scroll. Scroll starts off where Option leaves off - Bennett and Erin get swooped up in another adventure in the volatile middle east - Iraqi President Al-Hassani wants to unite Arab countries after the devastation of The Ezekial Option. Eli Mordechai gets the Bennets on a hunt for the Key Scroll to the Copper Scrolls, found in the 1950's, that say the Scrolls deciphered shows the place of treasures that were mentioned in the Bible - including the Ark of the Covenant! Israel is going to rebuild the Temple, and the bad guys don't want it to happen. So the chase begins - This is an exciting story with current overtones of the tension in the middle east,of great faith, and giving yourself into that faith.
Rosenberg is one of those writers that puts you in the game with the characters and action as well as Old and New Testament writings and how the are relevant to the present.
Ready for the next one, Joel!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read!!!!!!! January 4, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Copper Scroll is the forth book in Joel C. Rosenberg's end times series. Its a very fast paced and exciting read, that is based around the Ancient prophecy's of the Bible. What Rosenberg does is look at the Bible prophecy's and modern trends and write up a fictionalized account about what may happen soon. He has had the uncanny ability to hit some things right on the head such as terrorists using airplane's in a terror attack (which he wrote of in his first book The Last Jihad) The death of Arrofat (in his second Book, The Last Days) and much more (the third Book in the series is the Ezekiel Option. Rosenberg's Books are centered upon His fictionalized cheaters; President James "Mac" MacPherson, Jon Bennett and Uzi Toting Super Model Looking CIA agent Erin McCoy; and many others. In the Copper Scroll Rosenberg center's on the search for the Ark of The Covenant, the treasures and implements of the Jewish temple, which have been lost for century's. The Copper Scroll a very fun read and at the same time educational, You will learn some of the important prophecy's that may soon come to pass. I cannot wait for the 5th book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic February 8, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I can't get enough of this author. He is fantastic. All his books are well researched down to the last minute detail. I've learned so much about the history of the mideast from reading his works.

His characters are so alive you almost feel like you know them. Rosenberg is a great story teller. His books are fast paced and easy to read.

Don't miss this one

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sum Of All Fears meets Indiana Jones September 13, 2006
Format:Hardcover
Easily consumed in one or two nights, like a bag of potato chips. This is an enjoyable series. The good guys are good, and the bad guys are bad (and they always get their just desserts). The good guys are mostly Christians, so most of them do not fear death. That usually helps them do the right thing, even at extreme personal sacrifice.

People who hate religion will probably be put off. You know...the ones who characterize anyone with any flavor of Christian faith as "religion freaks" (something they would never say about a Muslim or Jew).

The author uses a lot of pretty obscure prophetic old testament bible passages to build the story. For those that are curious, it leads to some interesting research.

In the end, as with any good series, the next adventure is all set up.

Rosenberg is on-par with Vince Flynn and Oliver North, not as technical as Clancy. If you intend to read him, start at the beginning. All four books are related, and each is written with equal skill.
