Author Bob Hostetlerabout this book: Archaeologist Randall Bullock has come to Israel to try to resurrect his crumbling career—and his life. When a cave-in occurs at a construction site near Jerusalem, Rand is called on to oversee excavations of a second Temple period tomb. . . which turns out to be the tomb of Caiaphas, the high priest who was a central figure in the trial of Jesus. The excavation of the tomb, however, leads to an even greater discovery: a scroll, apparently buried two-thousand years ago with the priest, which heralds a sea change in Rand's life, his relationships, his reputation, and his future.

The Bone Box is rooted in an actual event—the discovery (and subsequent excavation) of the tomb and house of Caiaphas, the high priest in the early 1990s. It weaves Rand's story--and that of Caiaphas the high priest--in and out of actual archaeological discoveries. In addition to gripping readers with one man's story of redemption, it will show how easy—and utterly deadly—it is to ignore the evidence and reject the claims of Christ. It also explores the nature of faith and the answer to the question: How much evidence for faith is enough?


• "A roller coaster ride that grabs you on page one and won't turn you loose until the end! Present day danger mingles with historical deception"
— novelist Heather Burch, author of Along the Broken Road

• "Political intrigue, the path of salvation, and finally reconciliation and redemption. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly"
— Keiki Hendrix, The Vessel Project
