The Brotherhood Of The Scroll
- 1. Consider a world international scene dominated by two superpowers.
- 2. Consider a world in which both superpowers form alliances, plan assassinations, and undertake massive projects to gain advantage over their adversaries.
- 3. Consider a world in which third rate countries choosing the wrong superpower as an ally are destroyed, their ruling cast carried off into exile by the invading enemy.
- 4. Finally, consider a world international scene in which a small group of religious zealots boldly proclaim that the coming world conflagration is the will of God.
Such was the case in 600 B.C. when Babylon vied with Egypt for world domination.
The Brotherhood of the Scroll is the story of a small group of Jewish patriots intent on helping their nation navigate the dangers of a turbulent international scene in the light of God’s revealed will.
The story begins in 605 BC, when Jeremiah delivered a prophesy that Jerusalem would be carried into Babylonian captivity for 70 years.
In that same year, Babylon defeated Egypt at the Battle of Carchemish, Nebuchadnezzar became King of Babylon, and within a year, carried the first of three groups of Jews into exile.
Jeremiah, seeing his beloved Israel caught between these two superpowers, forms an inner circle of faithful zealots he names The Brotherhood of the Scroll, whose mission is to preserve the faith of their people amidst international intrigue and war.
The Brotherhood of the Scroll is a fast-paced story that will captivate the attention of those who enjoy an international spy thriller, as well as anyone interested in how spiritual and political issues intertwine.
