"Ark of the Covenant" is one of Jonathan Gray's lengthiest and best known books. It investigates (the now late) Ron Wyatt's claim of discovering the Ark of the Covenant, the golden box where the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments were kept, and where God's presence dwelt while with the people of ancient Israel. Despite himself, Gray finds Wyatt's claim to be undeniably true. It caused quite a stir when it was released, and a lot of backlash from the secular archaeological community.

Jonathan Gray, on the whole, is a great writer. His books "Dead Men's Secrets", "Sting of the Scorpion" and "The Bizarre Origin of the Egyptian Gods" are all alternative history essentials, while his more biographical books like "Into the Unknown" and "Curse of the Hatana Gods", dealing with his archaeological expeditions, are just as exciting to read. His documentary series "Surprising Discoveries" shows him as an easy going, gentle, but confident man. A true skeptic, he'll only believe when there's proof, and he has proven some amazing things over his career.

Though I am a fan of Gray, I was put off reading "Ark of the Covenant" for quite some time, due to the controversy, cynicism and criticism surrounding Wyatt's find. I don't know a lot about Ron Wyatt but I have seen his documentary on the cities Sodom & Gomorrah, and the evidence was solid throughout. He was right about that, he could be right about this, so I decided to give this book a try.

The lengthy book covers many, many topics across its 47 chapters, 11 appendixes and 40 pages of references and footnotes.

Simply put, The Ark of the Covenant is very possibly one of the most important books of all time, 2nd only to the Bible.

The book is a veritable keystone which completes the picture of Jesus Christ as the genuine Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

If anyone is reading this review is interested in the book and a copy is unavailable at Amazon, you can find the book from a handful of websites (e.g. Anchor Stone, Wyatt Archaeological Research, and Jonathan Gray's archaeologyanswers site).

In my estimation, the work done by Ronald Wyatt and Jonathan Gray is too important not be read.

I found the revelations in this book staggering.
It is structured in such a way that if you have prior knowledge of bible history then you are not forced to read 500 pages but can skim or miss out certain chapters.
Those with a fair knowlege of the bible may feel they are paying a lot for things they already know about. However, some of the information and supporting evidence looks unique and the sources of information are given. Well presented and easy to read. Quite a balanced approach to the evidence.

Amazing powerful information. From both a Christian and non-Christian standpoint this book can literally be life changing. Well written and captivating. Thank you Jonathan for writing this book. I agree with E. Buvron that this book can viewed as the second most important book after the bible. And thanks for mentioning alternative places for buying the book.
