Praise For The Jesus Family Tomb

“A slick and suspenseful narrative. . . . Jacobovici is a maverick, a self-made Indiana Jones.”

“Absolutely fascinating . . . many would argue the biggest story or one of the biggest stories of our lifetime.”
-Today Show

“This discovery is potentially the last nail in the coffin of biblical literalism”
