The Masada Scroll : At the heart of this timely novel is the discovery of a previously unknown gospel that predates the four gospels of the New Testament. This ancient scroll introduces a mysterious symbol that combines the Star of David, the Cross of Christianity, and the Crescent and Star of Islam. None of the latter symbols existed at the time the Gospel was written, adding to the mystery that Michael Flannery, an Irish priest, must unravel. Flannery discovers that the symbol represents the Trevia Dei, or Three Paths to God. At the heart of Jesus's message is the unity of the paths that lead to God. The true meaning of Trevia Dei was perverted over the centuries, turning the message of unity into a single path to salvation. But there are those who do not want the message of this wonderful book of light and love brought to our troubled world, ones who have chosen to separate rather than unite God's children. The Masada Scroll is a tale of the timeless quest for spiritual truth and redemption.
