The Amen Heresy by W.H. Muhlenfeld ****

The Amen Heresy by W.H. Muhlenfeld is a great book. Very insightful and gets you thinking.

Ex-Priest, Jack Fisher, is led to Jerusalem after he receives a strange package from his colleague Dr. Dvir Gottlieb. Inside the package is a medallion with some sort of code on it. Unsure of what it is that Gottlieb is trying to tell him, he decides to make his way to Israel.

After arriving to Israel, Jack becomes acquainted with a Palestinian boy, Sami, that Gottlieb has prepared to meet Jack. Sami then explains the meeting time and place of the code on the medallion, which Sami has also received. Together they try to decipher the rest of the code on both medallions, unbeknown to them they are being watched from several angles.

Jack finds himself in a full blown mystery after a murder, a kidnapping, the introduction to a "lioness" (Ariel) , and a beating to Sami. In the fight to survive, Jack must help Khalid, a Neurotic Egyptian, find the missing Copper Scroll from the Dead Sea Scrolls. It seems Khalid has found the work and research of Dr. Dvir Gottlieb and Jack Fisher very intriguing, only Gottlieb was onto something much more serious in his findings that he wasn't able to share with Jack as of yet.

Jack, Ariel, and Sami end up in Egypt trying to find the missing scrolls while trying to outwit their followers and stay alive. Follow their story through Israel to Mt. Sinai.

Muhlenfeld proved his research in The Amen Heresy. It was an informative read, though a little slow getting into the action. Once Muhlenfeld hit the excitement, it held my attention wanting to know what happened next. I especially loved Jack Fisher, who had so much turmoil in his own mind! I give it ****(4)Stars, BK Walker-Author of "Near Suicide" and "Dares And Dreams".
