One way people learn about history and academic subjects is through reading novels. This is why I am happy to be working with Jerry Jenkins, author of 195 novels (which have sold some 70 million copies!). Our book, Dead Sea Rising, is the first in a series of books that feature intrepid archaeologist Nicole Berman. She uncovers artifacts from antiquity that not only shed light on the past but throw political and religious issues of the present into a whole new light, but she does this at great peril to herself and those she loves. The sequel, Dead Sea Conspiracy, released in the summer of 2022, follows Nicole to an archaeological dig in Saudi Arabia. If you are looking for a new, exciting series of adventure and suspense, these are the books for you!
