From the Inside Flap
JOEL C. ROSENBERG'S NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING NOVELS HAVE AN UNCANNY WAY OF COMING TRUE.
The first page of his first thriller, "The Last Jihad," put readers inside the cockpit of a hijacked jet, coming in on a kamikaze attack into an American city . . . but it was written nine months "before" September 11, 2001. As "Jihad" unfolds, an American president finds himself in a war with Saddam Hussein over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction . . . but it was published five months before the actual war with Iraq began.
Rosenberg's second novel, "The Last Days," opens with an attack on a U.S. diplomatic convoy heading into Gaza, the death of Yasser Arafat, and radical Islamic terrorists trying to take over the West Bank and Gaza . . . but two weeks before it was published, a U.S. diplomatic convoy was attacked in Gaza . . . thirteen months after it was published, Yasser Arafat died . . . and then Hamas seized control of the West Bank and Gaza.
In Rosenberg's third novel, "The Ezekiel Option," a dictator rises to power in Russia, an Iranian leader vows to annihilate Israel, and Russia and Iran form an unprecedented military alliance . . . but on the very day the novel came out, Iran elected a new president vowing to accelerate his country's nuclear program . . . four months later, he vowed to "wipe Israel off the earth" . . . and two months after that, Russia agreed to sell Iran $1 billion worth of fighter jets, missiles, and naval warships. Now comes "The Copper Scroll," Rosenberg's most exciting adventure yet.
Will it come true as well?
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.

Now, i am enthralled with Joel R. My only disappointment is I didn't discover his writings till now. I started at "The Ezekiel Option" and moved forward through "The Copper Scroll" which taught me quite a bit about archeological discoveries that I didn't know about. Of course I don't know about all discoveries but those of relevance (regarding my faith) I would have hoped I was more informed either through my own initiative or through the media or history channel, etc (haha). I knew about the "Dead Sea Scroll" and some of the information surrounding those. This book however, revealed to me much more and since his books are fiction, it was important to me to find out what is fiction and what is non fiction; so while I read the book, I often was searching the internet for substantiating data. This helped me to better understand his references, the history, the ideas, the "folklore", and geographical and archeological endeavors of researchers today and in the recent past. One does not need to do all this to enjoy this book because if you take it for what it is "fiction", than you don't have to concern yourself with more than it being a suspenseful, thriller of political and religious conflicts. However, since I am a Christian and want truth; I was inspired to research and become knowledgable in matters I was not, prior to this book.
All his books are amazing, all worth sleepless nights, purposely taking my time at coffee shops and anywhere else for that matter to get through them. They are so creatively written using real life, current and probable world political situations to create the "end times" theories into fruition. I believe in the bible and all its written scripts from beginning to end and have in the last year become more fascinated with the many biblical prophesies, which include the return of Jesus, coming for his followers. His studious approach to his Jewish heritage and Christian faith, along with his professional experience in government affairs has afforded him an abounding ability to bring scripture to life in our current generation.
If you're at all interested in a great political thriller; this will fulfill your desires. If you're interested in biblical prophesy, his writings will join the religion and politics together gracefully, and if you're interested in being entertained regardless; his books will do it. I am a simple person and his perspective has opened my eyes beyond any measure I could imagine and raised the bar of understanding our current political climate.
Basically, the plot revolves around the rise of Iraq as a world economic superpower, and the increased Israeli pressure to rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. Between the two global forces is the hunt for the Temple's massive treasure and the Ark of the Covenant. The Copper Scroll is the treasure map and like in the Da Vinci code Jon and Erin are on the hunt. Unlike many of today's Da Vinci lite books the Copper Scroll actually delivers in the end.
The Copper Scroll is the 4th book in the Rosenberg middle east political saga. You can get by without reading the prior 3 but it could cause a little confusion at times. Mr. Rosenberg does a good job of keeping the reader updated from the previous books but still it can cause some confusion. The ending is excellent and of course lends itself to another book in the mega saga.
No gratuitous violence, language, or sex.
Good read, recommended.
