The Jesus Family Tomb: The Discovery, the Investigation, and the Evidence That Could Change History
Simcha Jacobovici and Charles Pellegrino
From The Publisher:
In 1980, workers at a Jerusalem construction site accidentally uncovered a cache of bone boxes from early Christian times. When reports about the crypt discovery leaked out 16 years later, the London Sunday Times headlined the story as "The Tomb That Dare Not Speak Its Name." Now the full story will be told. In 2005, documentary filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici obtained permission to break through the apartment floor and reenter the tomb. Part archaeological detective story and part early Christian history, The Jesus Family Tomb is a narrative as riveting as any novel.
"This discovery is potentially the last nail in the coffin of biblical literalism"
John Dominic Crossan, author of God & Empire
