The Fifth Gospel

The Fifth Gospel


Book 1

Did the most dynamic, charismatic person who ever lived, Jesus of Nazareth, keep a diary written in his own hand? Did he chronicle what he saw, what he did, what he thought, and what he commanded? Did he leave for all humanity a blueprint for life, more detailed and more direct than the gospel writers? Mysteriously, rumors of the existence of these documents surfaces, and like an earthquake, good men and evil men collide as the two sides covet, and hunt for, the most powerful words ever written.

From the streets of the Vatican to the walls of ancient Avignon, France, the search is on. A pious young priest, lured into the hunt by a secluded benefactor, is chosen to find the diary before corrupting, greedy men can get their hands on it. The priest confronts conspiracy, murder, sinister forces, and scheming Vatican officials, but pushes on to discover what may be the ultimate possession of mankind-The Fifth Gospel according to Jesus of Nazareth.
