Review: The Alexandria Letter by George Honig


where I got my copy: Phenix Publicity

After Cambridge scholar Nathan Tobin discovers an ancient Aramaic letter, he finds himself thrown into an agonizing struggle against powerful forces committed to discrediting him. The Alexandria letter discloses surprising revelations about the lives of Jesus and John the Baptist, as well as shocking claims of duplicity by Paul of Tarsus, which threaten to turn long-held principles of Christianity on their heads.
But as he races to verify the authenticity of the letter, he faces rejection by his fellow scholars and sinister opposition from within the Church that aims to stop him at any cost. The Alexandria letter represents the most important work Nathan has ever done, but it may also be the last.

There was a time that I was so engrossed with religious-conspiracy thriller. Dan Brown had started that trend. After reading all his books, I went on a quest to find similar plots and intrigue. The one that the church wants to burn and the ones that my mother condone, seriously, its only a novel, sure it might somehow makes you think... what if it is really true? But really it is all up to you.

In the Alexandria Letter, Dr. Honig tells a tale about Jesus not only being who he is in the bible but also a person with an advance knowledge in medicine. It is by far the most acceptable theory I've even read. The Armaic letter that was now with Cambridge scholar Nathan Tobin was intriguing since the very beginning. An ancient scripture that will change everything. Of course there will always be that group of people who will stop at nothing just so this secret won't come out. That part was predictable but the plot itself was what I was looking for in a long time. Suspenseful and thought provoking.
