Loved this book. A true tale of a search for what may be the original bible. In doing so the author does a fantastic job of explaining some biblical history while not coming across as all preachy. For anyone who has a) a religious bent of b) an interest in real life mysteries, not to mention far flung global destinations, this book is a must read.

Found this a fascinating tale on two levels, the story of the antiques dealer and his adventures collecting antiquities, and the story of what we know of how Deuteronomy came to be the last of the Books of Moses.
