Great book! Fast reading. I didn't want to put it down. I love the history and it just made me pick up my bible over & over to reread the parallel stories.

The Bone Box, by Bob Hostetler, is a fictional drama set around archaeologist Rand Bullocks discovery of an ancient Jewish tomb. After being joined unexpectedly by his 19-year-old daughter, Rand lives in constant tension between a daughter who he has neglected for years and a 2000 year old tomb that he only has limited time to explore. The book also includes the story of Caiaphas, the high priest who presided over Jesus trial, whose tomb Rand has possibly uncovered. By examining the many relationships, past and present, that surround this box of bones, this book successfully captures many difficult dynamics of life including making up for repeated mistakes, learning to love family members, and balancing priorities. Although The Bone Box, deals with a profession, archeology, that is often over-exaggerated or glamorized, Hostetler writes about it with research and reality on his side. This book would be good for churches and would appeal to most adults.
