From the Publisher
In his provocative new novel, The Papyrus Document, author Michael Cole dares to explore a highly controversial theme: the Marium-Jesus Theory, which postulates Jesus survived the crucifixion, traveled to India, and lived to a ripe old age.
A visibly shaken Pakistani archeologist leaves a set of biblical passages and a safe-deposit key with Natalie Rowe, a forensics pathologist, and confides in her that he's stumbled upon an ancient document which will shed light on a major Christian premise.
When he is murdered, Natalie and Mushtaq, his son, work feverishly to decipher the code in the biblical passages in an effort to locate the safe-deposit box and the mysterious document contained therein. Their search leads them to a sacred Muslim shrine in the Indian-occupied portion of Kashmir. An astounding discovery provides evidence that Jesus' remains are interred in the shrine. Had Jesus survived the Crucifixion?
The dramatic climax will leave you reeling.

This strong and solid religious thriller, based on historical documents, is a fascinating journey that the reader follows to
the very end. In the novel, main protagonist, forensic pathologist Dr. Natalie Rowe joins forces with the son of a murdered
Pakistani scientist, whose controversial discovery can shed light on the true fate of Jesus Christ or ignite the flames of
a new and merciless religious war. They are about to uncover the mystery behind Christ's life, the crucifixion, and find
the answer to the most enduring question of all: did Jesus die on the cross or survive and live the rest of his life in India?
Going through the pages of Michael's book, I almost smelled the wax of the burning candles and felt the crunching ancient dust
of the holy sites under my feet. Strong, intelligent, likable and resilient, Dr. Natalie Rowe is realistic and likable. She
solves problems with intellect and wit that label her as not only a great scientist, but a remarkable human being with a good
heart and strong spirit. The novel is a colorful tapestry of logical events that lead the main heroine toward great revelation
and great danger. Fast-paced and well-designed plot accelerates from page one and never stops its momentum.In a smooth and easy
to read prose reminiscent of his past works, Michael Cole delivers another incredible adventure. Dr. Natalie Rowe's character
shows the true determination to uncover the mystery as she prepares to expose the real truth behind Christ's resurrection.
From the streets of Washington D.C. and then to a sacred tomb hidden in India, Natalie and the son of a slain scientist
race against time to find the proof and survive the wrath of a fanatical religious group determined to stop them at any
cost. The climax of the story will shock you to the core, as the main characters inch closer to the most fascinating and
revealing discovery. Read the book and learn the true fate of a man whose philosophy and faith altered the course of
