Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins comes a heart-stopping adventure of historical proportions.

Nicole Berman is an archaeologist on the brink of a world-changing discovery. During her first dig in Jordan, she believes she has found concrete evidence of a biblical patriarch that could change history books forever. But someone doesn't want the truth revealed. While urgently trying to connect pieces of an ancient puzzle, a dangerous enemy is out to stop her.  

"From a criminal investigation in Manhattan to the birth of Abram in ancient Ur, Jerry Jenkins weaves together a tale of drama and suspense that will draw you into the lives of two families separated by 4,000 years of history yet sharing remarkably similar struggles of faith. Dead Sea Rising combines the thrill of a whodunit with the moral and political intrigue of the ancient, and modern, Middle East. But be prepared. Once you begin, you won't be able to stop until you reach the final page!" (Dr. Charlie Dyer, Professor-At-Large of Bible, and host of The Land and the Book radio program)

"If you love history - especially biblical history - this is a fun and fascinating read!" (Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center)

"Jerry Jenkins' dialogue is equal to the best of Nelson DeMille, his storylines equal to the best of John Grisham. And now Dead Sea Rising... this book may be Jerry's best." (Andy Andrews, New York Times best-selling author of The Traveler's Gift and The Noticer)

"Jumping back and forth in time at a breakneck pace, Dead Sea Rising is a thriller as only Jerry B. Jenkins can tell it. Biblical history combines with gripping contemporary mystery. Just be aware - you'll be hooked." (James Scott Bell, international thriller writers award winner)

Anticlimactic

The book was very interesting until I got to the end, and I couldn't believe I was hearing the "I hope you enjoyed this book..." I was shocked that was the end. I don't feel like everything was resolved. Disappointing...

Where in the world is Jerry

I have loved Jerry Jenkins novels, until this one. True is, I gave up on the book about 25% through. It was simply far to painful and while understand the two stories will come together, it is just too painstakingly laborious to put any more time and effort into a meandering story. I HATE putting on a negative comment, but I do wish I had been warned ahead of time so I feel it is my obligation given that it is so far from the superior efforts of Jerry’s previous novels.

Unsatisfying End - Wait to buy until 2021

Don't buy this until after the second book comes out at the end of 2020.
I'm usually a big fan of J.B. Jenkins books. This book started in his usual style, but just as the story begins to become interesting, it ends. No conclusion to anything. Apparently it is a prequel of sorts for a book that will not come out until Nov 2020. Unfortunately this book didn't leave me eagerly anticipating the next book, it left me annoyed at the abrupt ending with no satisfactory wrap up.

It’s a let down

Leaves the reader hanging. Not worth the time. The story could have been good too but it just flops at the end.

Great reader, very lackluster story.

the reader was phenomenal and did a great job with characterization. unfortunately the story line was very weak, took a long time to develop and, unfortunately, never came to fruition. it almost feels like the author got tired of writing a thready storyline and abruptly ended it without conclusion.

huge let down

have you ever watched a movie to its completion taking that it has to get better... but it never does. this book goes on and on and never connects all of the storylines. it may as well have been 2 1/2 separate books.

I should have read the reviews.

I was really enjoying this book. But, it ended so fast, and nothing was solved. "We hope you enjoyed this audio book"
Then I went and read the reviews. Apparently, there is another book to follow this one. I've read a lot of series books and this is the first time I have felt there was no conclusion to the book I was reading. It is like they ended the book right in the middle, at the place where all the information is on the table and now it is time to get down to solving the situation. I had never read a Jerry B. Jenkins novel before and I'm not so sure I'm going to read another one after the let down of this book.

A poor effort by author and reader

A book in a trilogy should be able to stand by itself, at least partly . This was not a book, it was a third of a book. There is no conclusion, nothing is resolved and the pace was very slow. The reader exaggerated accents, and often his tone did not match that of the character’s emotion in the story. I found his performance more distracting than supportive of the story.

I wish I could give it zero stats

The story never connects and you never know why the Biblical story is being told and never find out what they are searching for in the current day story. I assumed there would be sequel but can’t find one. An absolute waste of time I can’t believe there are 5 star reviews
